Default Platinum Discount and Shareholder Credit

I have a quick question.

If you received the $100 stateroom discount credit, for Platinum status, can you also receive the $100 Shareholder benefit?

Thanks,
Mike

I don't think you can use both. I remember reading somewhere that you could not use another discount with your shareholder discount. It doesn't seem fair to me though. Why become a shareholder when you get the same or better discount from other means????

They really are NOT combining almost any of their offers. We couldn't even use a $50 coupon with the "WOW" sale for a customer this past week. When things were going well financially "RCI" used to be quite liberal in combining offers that even stated they weren't allowed to be combined.

You can not combine offers; if the only reason you have the stock is for the shareholder benefits; you may want to sell your shares if you're not making any money them.

Thanks for the replies.

I've had RCL stock for quite awhile and while I have bought and sold parts of my RCL portfolio I've done fairly well. The last drop was a good opportunity to acquire more. It has doubled since then.

I've used the shareholder credit on my RC, Azamara and Celebrity cruises but I just wanted to know if the new "non-combining" related to the shareholder benefits. It was a nice benefit but it's a bit of a disappointment to know it can no longer be used in conjunction with any other discount.

Thanks,
Mike

I have done OK with my Royal stock and did get the credit on several Celebrity and Royal cruises. I will keep my shares for now, and wait to see what the future brings.
