I just mailed my certificate of purchase for my 100 shares of
Carnival stock.
How do I find out if and when I will see my onboard credit on
my 2 upcoming cruises?

How much of a credit do you get? How much stock do you need to own?

You purchase a minimum of 100 shares through any broker (Scottrade is $7 to purchase it).

Then we mail a photocopy of the financial statement showing we own it WITH a letter that shows your name, the booking number, sail date and ship to:

CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES
Research Supervisor
Reservation Administration
3655 N.W. 87th Avenue
Miami, FL 33178
Tel 800-438-6744 ext. 70041
Fax 305-406-5882

The OBC usually shows up on our documents (we still get them snail mail).

Less than 7 days...you get 50.00. 7 days you get 100.00 and I believe for a 14 day you get 250.00 but we have never done a 14 day.

It's not easy to find.

From Carnival's main web page, click on Investor Relations (bottom right, under About Carnival).
At the top of the next page, click on Investor Relations.
On the left-hand menu you'll see Shareholder Benefit (third from bottom).
This takes you to a page with Click here to view our Shareholder Benefit.
This is a link to a pdf file with the information you're looking for.

Like I said, it's not easy to find.

I sent my documents in via regular mail, then about 2 weeks later called Carnival directly and asked if they had received my "Shareholder Benefit" documents. She looked it up and said the documents had been received.

Can you already have a cruise booked, then purchase the stock, then get the onboard credit for that cruise, even if you have other onboard credit?
