as stated, 100 shares. If you are going to buy the price is way down right now. I bought at 35. Dumb luck. But your perks depend on how long your cruise is. Luckily I like longer cruises so I usually get the $200 or $250 obc. They did take away some of the perks with that too so buying a future cruise credit on your next RCCL ship will do exactly the same thing as forking out the $ for 100 shares and it's can't be combined anymore so there's no benefit to having both. With the FCC it costs $100 but you apply your $100 to your deposit so you're not losing it and you get the same obc as if you were a shareholder. They used to allow both but alas, no more so I totally recommend the FCC

I agree up to a point. Depending on your status in the C & A program, you may be better off taking a Diamond discount rather than a shareholder credit or FCC credit. I asked my TA a hypothetical question....if I'm on a 10-night cruise, am I better off taking the Diamond discount or the shareholder OBC. She said my Diamond discount would be $300, and the shareholder credit would only be $200.
Oh, for the good old days.....on our upcoming Jewel cruise in October, we're getting $200 shareholder credit, $200 NextCruise credit, and $125 from our TA. Sadly, those days are gone forever.

If you are a crown and anchor member, u can get better deals or at least just as good of a deal using their sale certificates. Royal stopped letting people combine certificates; if u have a shareholders perk, u can't use a crown and anchor certificate, if u have a next cruise certificate, u can't combine it with the above mentioned certificates. What I'm saying is: save your money; don't buy the stock, and u can still find just as good a deal using other perks and benefits.
