Default Carnival Stockholder Discounts

Yo-

How many shares of CCL - Carnival stock - do you have to have to receive discounts or perks on Carnival cruises?

What are the perks and/or discounts?

Does it apply only to Carnival ships - or also to the other companies that they own?

TIA-

Mike

You have to own at least 100 shares of stock. You get $100 shipboard credit on every Carnival cruise you take. We've sent them e-mails asking about getting it on Princess cruises and they never answered. You might want to call Carnival direct and ask what to do and where to sent your information...Dennis

Well Mike, when you buy stock in Carnival (NYSE - CCL), you are buying stock in Carnival Corporation, not Carnival Cruise Lines. In order to get anything from the company, you must own a minimum of 100 shares ($5,239.00 based on the 11/7 closing price). After you purchase those 100 shares, the corporation offers an on board credit. The amount is based on the length of your cruise ranging from $50.00 to $250.00. The on board credit is available on every cruise line that Carnival corporation owns which includes Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn Cruise Line, Windstar Cruises, AIDA Costa Cruises, Cunard Line, P&O Cruises, Ocean Village, Swan Hellenic, and P&O Cruises Australia.

Don't buy stock for the little incentive it will give you but rather for the long term investment.

Yo-

Thanks for the information-

We own 120 shares of CCL - so it looks as if we qualify-

btw - bought the shares 'cause it looks like a good investment in a good company - and the credits are just a bonus to us-

Happy Cruisin'

Mike

It has been a great long term investment - I purchased the stock for about $17.25 per share (right after 9/11/01). It has paid dividends, onboard credits, and climbed to over $52 per share (Nice 200% growth).

Ironically, the cruise industry has weathered the travel slump after 9/11, SARS, Hurricanes, mergers, etc. Seems to only be getting more popular... IMHO - However, popularity and profitablitity are not the same thing.

Just be forewarned: Sometimes the benefit is not consistently honored if you have another credit to your shipboard account.

For example, Princess does not apparently allow you to use both a onboard booking future cruise credit in combination with the shareholder credit.
