Default Buying stock in princess

Could someone tell me what perks you gain if you buy stock in Princess? I believe it is CUK and listed under Carnival, is that correct. I also heard that you need to buy 100 shares for any perks, and I am just curious as to what the perks are. Would they apply to a cruise that is already booked?

Thanks for any help with this, and have a great Holiday!

Yes, you must own at least 100 shares of CCL (Carnival Corporation & Plc) in order to get the benefits. This is not to be confused with purchasing shares of Carnival Cruise Lines, which Carnival Corporation & Plc owns in addition to Holland America, Cunard, Seabourn, P&O, etc., etc. You get the benefits on any of their cruiselines. Here's a link to Investor Relations and a description of the benefits and how to obtain them: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/External...xUeXBlPTM=&t=1

The perks apply to any cruise booked or not and can be used for Tips, trips or trashy souvineirs. Funny I was answering the same time as you Pam.

Actually, you get $250 on onboard credits ONLY if you are on a cruise 14+ days. The onboard credit ranges from $50 - $250, depending on the length of the cruise.

Also, this perk is per cabin. You cannot each purchase 100 shares and expect to get double the onboard credit. You will make a stock investment with the 2nd 100 shares but not get the credit.

CCL on the US exchange. If you have over 100 shares (can be in any kind of account you own), you get onboard credit based on a few factors...

Theres a definitive shareholder thread somewhere that has the details.

We purchased our 100 shares of CCL just a week prior to our Hawaii RT and received the $250 OBC. Have since received two more $100 OBCs for additional cruises. Stock has also appreciated almost $1250. That's about a 50% return in less that 15 months. At a close of $46.30/share today your return will not be as great but if you cruise often on one or more of the Carnival brands you should still get a reasonable return on your investment.

The CCL Shareholders benefit can be applied for after final payment is made on a booked cruise. It will show as a positive credit on your onboard account.

If you qualify for the ex-military OBC, it is the same as owning the shares for Princess, but evidently not for the other Carnival cruise lines. And it can't be combined with the stock OBC.

Carnival Corporation trades on the New York stock exchange with the ticker symbol CCL. It also trades on the London exchange with the ticker symbol CUK.

Do a search for military OBC threads. Some of the later ones will mention that you can now combine the CCL stock OBC with the Military OBC. I have confirmations from Liza/Princess that both OBCs are credited to my cruises in Jan, Feb and March. In early December I sent emails with required documentation for both types of OBC and received confirmations within hours that I had the OBCs.
