Question NCLH shareholder Benefit

I emailed the IR Department at NCL about the possibility of a future shareholder benefit
The Return Response:

Thank you for your email and for your interest in Norwegian Cruise Line.

Currently we do not have a shareholder benefit program in place, but we are considering our options.

Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

Best Regards,

Andrea DeMarco | Director Investor Relations

Only 12% of NCL stock was made available to the public. The remaining 88% is still in the hands of Genting Hong Kong, Apollo Global Management and TPG Capital.

With the relatively small number of shares that are publicly traded, and with much of that probably being held by institutions rather than individuals, perhaps offering stockholder benefits for NCL cruises isn't a very important way to bolster bookings.

Unhappy

I rushed out and purchased it for the perks. I made my reservation with my TA and she used a New York state resident discount. I also received a rejection for my OBC. The only way to get my $100.00 credit wad to pay $40.00, which I did and now I have $60.00 OBC.
I bought RCCL stock years ago when I cruised with Celebrity and made the money back several times over.
And to add insult to injury, my cruise has price has dropped $300.00. I have a Handicapped room and the only upgrade available would be to a balcony, which I would have to pay much more money for, if one was available.

Got my $100 OBC on my Sept cruise without a problem, and it combined with my TA's OBC. So happy as a clam. I book insides and oceansview where the NCL OBC is usually slim to none and always <$100 so the restriction on combining offers doesn't come into play. It's a new stock and new program for NCL so I do hope they clarify their policy and loosen the restrictions though. Do have a cruise next year where the shareholder credit probably won't apply.

I don't get it. NCL said to call my TA which I did, and he said call NCL and see what kind of discount I can use it with. Too much of a hassle for me. I'm gonna dump the stock.

It seems like NCL stock holders credit can't be combined with anything??

How does a potential $100 OBC compete with some of the offers NCL offers...like the "Norwegians Pick Their Perks?" promotion?

The three dinners more than covers the $100 in OBC and it includes wine, strawberries, Spa credit etc. I was really tempted to buy stock, but can't figure out the value at this point.

I agree and I put the above sentiments in an email to NCL.
They are better off not offering the stock OBC , its a joke and people know it.
At the very least they should say , Not combinable with any NCL obc promo offer.
But its to broad in its wording which makes it worthless .

I agree 100% with both of you. The other two cruise stocks are absolutely awesome and should be complimented for the way they handle their shareholders. They have never questioned the OBC no matter what fare I got.

If you hear anything from NCL I'd be happy knowing. As far as I can see I agree that it is useless. No one pays full price for cruising anymore, and because of their worthless wording, the "shareholders benefit" is, well, nothing.

Thanks for the feedback. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who feels this way. If others knew it they'd be dumping their stuff too. We're even going to sell at a loss, but at this point I don't really care. It's not doing us any good.
