Default Share Holder Benefits

Is there a minimum amount of shares necessary to have shareholder status with RCCL? Thanks.

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.

Unless you have faith in the stock market, and believe the share price will recover to its former level. But, Royal Caribbean has also suspended the dividend, so you have to consider that as well.

Based on current pricing, I'm making money on the 100 shares I bought at $6.24, but not doing so well on the original 100 I bought at $44........
