I have a question regarding on board credit from owning stock in the Carnival Corp. I know that one receives an board credit if you own 100 shares or more but my question is - If the stock is in both my name and my wifes name do we both receive the credit?
Good morning Jim, unfortunately the terms of OBC state that it is restricted to one per stateroom. However, in theory, this means that if you are travelling as a group you could split your booking aross 2 (or more) staterooms then simply move back in with each other once on board
I would suggest to get to know someone who works for Carnival. I have a family member who works for Princess and I am on the family & friends plan. Though it works ONLY for Princess and NOT the parent Carnival Corp. YOU STILL reveive roughly 55-60% off the regular price. I would take that over a 100.00 ship credit anyday.
Besides the way my wife gets those drink of the day specials a hundred bux is gone by day TWO. >>>

If you look at the Carnival Corporation & PLC Shareholdrer Benefit it states that the onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 14 days or longer is $250 US
7 TO 13 Days is $100
6 days or less is $50.
When do you have to have ownership in CCL Stock. Can you purchase it one day, send the information to CCL and then sell the stock? Or do you have to own it the date of the sailing?
Why would you want to do that? The stock is very cheap now and if you do a couple of cruises a year you are way ahead. You do have to fax them proof that you own the stock after the final payment is made.
I don't go on many cruises - maybe one every couple of years. With the economy the way it is, I am not sure if I want to buy and hold CCL stock.
You could technically buy and sell but those of us who cruise frequently and regularly are incredulous that you would do that. However, if you hardly ever cruise I guess it makes sense. Make sure you allow enough time to buy, get your brokerage statement and do the submission. As previously stated, submit after final payment.
