Can you doubledip? Shareholder credit and prebook credit?
Do you know if you can receive both a Shareholder credit and a prebook credit? We usually book our next cruise while on the ship. This gives us a $200 credit for the next sailing. I thought I read somewhere that you can't get both credits. Has anyone received both?

They have also changed benefits via Next cruise -- I noticed some required a nonrefundable deposit in order to get the OBC if you didn't book a specific cruise. I didn't bother booking a future cruise this time around -- no point in waiting in line and wasting vacation time to get benefits equal to what a simple email will give you.
Kind of worthless. I did use one just for the $100 I had in it not asking for OBC since I was getting more value from Diamond pricing. I still have one Next Cruise to use somewhere.

I also stoped booking on board, and now I just apply for the share holder's benefit.

you can not doubledip as of right now. If economy changes, who knows. I just returned from Voyager of the seas in Europe. I booked next cruise and put $100 down. The reason I did this was; I will be booking three rooms on my next cruise. I now get $100 obc for each room I book. If I used shareholder or crown and anchor benefit, the max I would get would be $200 for the entire cruise.
