Default Benefits of owning CCL stock

Are there any benefits to being a stockholder of CCL? How many shares do you need? Does this entitle you to OBC? How much OBC do you recieve?

You must own at least 100 shares and this entitles the shareholder an OBC of $100 per cabin on a 7 day cruise. The amount varies with shorter and longer cruises.

Thank you!
Also does this get you OBC for Princess and other cruiselines owned by CCL?

And with CCL stock being low at under $24 per share, now is the time to buy stock.

We are definitely looking into this.

Default Credit

You also get credit on RCL lines if you own their stock. RCL is cheap now.

I bought CCL when it was a lot higher. I have received $100 on both HAL & Carnival. On my current cruise of 27 days I've been credited $250.

A couple of weeks ago RCL was at around 6 bucks and CCL was around 18.

Default When and for how long?

Wondering how long before your cruise you have to own the CCL stock, and then how long you have to hold it, in order to get the OBC?

We just used the confirmation from our stockbroker when we purchased the stock. You can get more information from the Investor Relations area of Carnival's site.

You can buy the stock a few days before your cruise and send a fax with all the info and proof of 100 shares you bought I did it about 5 days before I sailed to Hawaii and got 250.00 OBC for any cruise over 14 days and $100.00 OBC just now for a 7 day cruise one through Carnival and one on princess but the stock is good for any of the carnival owner cruise lines they renew the offer every year not sure on what months it is renewed try this web page if it doesn't work go to carnival.com and scroll down to the invester relations click on it and then again on the invester relations in the red bar on the left click on the shareholders benefits hopefully this will tell you everything you need to know it really is easy once you have bought the stock.

to buy your stock you can use any on line service or go through your own stock person, just get a copy of the investment with your name on it and any other info that is required and fax it to carnival good luck. We bought it when the stock was pretty low and since have used it twice for OBC plus the stock has gone up so we have done great.

Has Carnival always given OBC to stockholders? or is this relatively new? Has there been any talk of CCL taking this benefit away due to the economy?
