I own 100 shares of Carnival stock and received the $100 onboard credit on my first cruise after purchasing the stock a year ago. Is this a one time only credit or do I get $100 credit each time I cruise on HAL? If so, how does it show up again?

You will get credit each time you cruise. The amount of the credit depends on the length of the cruise.

Thanks for the quick reply. Do you know what we need to do to receive it or will the credit automatically show up? Glad I asked because I thought it was a one time deal.

Our TA takes care of the shipboard credit for us. She has a copy of our purchase and always notifies HAL at the appropriate time.

One year when we did 4 cruises, we got the credit all 4 times.

That's not the way it's supposed to work, but apparently HAL reps aren't enforcing the provision to provide proof of current ownership. Think about it: Hypothetically, you could sell all of your CCL stock and your TA could continue to provide HAL copies of your original purchase confirmation to garner you obc indefinitely. That's why they're supposed to ask for current brokerage statements.

How long must one hold stock in order to get the OBC?

I always fax my original purchase and have never been asked for anything else. I always receive the OBC.

Ahoy!

You can email it, as mentioned, as an attachment if you have on-line access to your account (be sure to X out your full account number, any other ID numbers, other holdings, etc.), fax it in or "snail" mail into the HAL office. If your using your local 'brick & mortar' TA they can do it for you also.

Whatever means you use be sure to bring a confirmation aboard with you so you will have some proof of the credit if one computer fails to 'talk' with another computer when it's time to settle up your on-board account.

Here's a link to the current detail page for the current fiscaal year:

Have a WONDERFUL CRUISE!

Bon Voyage & Good Health!

Hi,

I've just read the "shareholder benefit" from the website you provided. It says that the benefit is applicable on sailing through July 31, 2011.

Is this a limited benefit or is it a benefit that is renewed each fiscal year?

They usually vote on it at the annual stockholders meeting. There is always the chance that they will vote it down, but I don't think so.

send proof of stock ownership and proof of cruise to HAL and they will issue a shipboard credit.

We have done it many times and the credits now exceed the price that we paid for the stock by couple thousand dollars.

not a bad deal.

Yes, I know. That was the point.of my post. HAL is processing the obc based on the original purchase document, but shouldn't be.

DUCY?

From what our TA has told us -- once she faxes the information to Seattle -- Seattle has a way of checking to determine if you still do own the stock.

Also -- until recently the monthly statements we get from our broker has not included Carnival as they had stopped giving out dividends. Just noticed on our last statement that we did get a small dividend.

KK, I too was told that HAL has a way of checking, by looking up the original stock certificate purchase number, to see if you still own the stock..

I find it strange that your monthly brokerage statement does not include your Carnival stock...Stock prices change daily & our brokerage statement indicates the price as of the end of each month...All stocks, mutuals, bonds etc. in our account are indicated on our monthly statement, even if they don't pay dividends..

Looks like we'll be receiving quarterly dividends for a while...

Cheers....Betty

That wouldn't work because most stock certificates are issued in "street name." IOW, if you purchase stock through a Schwab account, the certificate is issued in Schwab's name. That's why when you receive proxy maerial or annual reports from CCL or any other company you may own, they are sent from the company to the brokerage firm, and then the broker mails it to their customers who actually own the stock.

I did look up some old reports -- Carnival is listed every month -- I guess I wasn't paying attention since we haven't gotten a dividend in a year or so.

Right around final payment, our TA sends in the request for the various shipboard credits. She has told us that sometimes it takes a day or two for HAL to confirm the shipboard credit as they do have to check the records.
