Does anyone know if the shipboard credit program has been extended for holders of RCCL stock. It was supposed to expire at the end of March, 2004. Have gotten $450 in credits already and would love to receive more.

Yes, it has been extended for bookings no later than May 1,2005. It is a great perk!

Hi Bud,

Yes it has. Try this link to see the current form to use. I don't know why Infopoop doesn't work consistently with the url button in posts. If I try to use that feature, I get what kkid got. Usually, it works by coying the link from the url address box in ie when on the site and pasting it directly in the post box.

Buying the shars of RCL at $29 has been the best investment I ever made. Usually when I buy stock, it tanks. I've got the gain of about $12/share plus $200 o/b credit so far and $600 for cruises booked in the next year.

Will September ever get here?

Guys-
Thanks a bundle for this thread. I have always used my Carnival stock for shipboard credit on Cunard/Seabourn etc., but NEVER knew that my RCCL stock had similar benefits. I just e-mailed them all the info for a June sailing. Thanks again!

I would love to be eligible for these credits. How much stock do you have to purchase and how often are these credits offered? Anything else you can tell me about this would be great.-- thanks in advance.

You must own at least 100 shares of RCL stock to use the benefit. Right now, it is good for use on all Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruises booked by May 1 '05 with only one exception. It cannot be applied to Celebrity Xpedition cruises.

You must own 100 shares of RCL stock. Here is the link to the letter that you send in with proof of share ownership. It outlines all the details of the benefit.
Shareholder letter

The stock has gone down this past week, so you might want to check into it soon, before it goes back up. We bought at $21 and change last year, so you see how much it has increased in value. The 52 week low was $18.69 and the 52 week high was $46.92. It closed yesterday at $39.23. Haven't looked at it today.

Thanks drk, I'll check out what the deal is for Carnivals' stockholders.

Hi Chichi, doesn't look like the Sept. cruise is a possibility, and after the last one, I think I need to stay away from Blackjack tables for awhile!!
