As has been repeatedly stated it's not required to use the form although not everyone is like you who submits a request with all of the necessary information.

That's why Princess created the form to ensure receiving complete requests. If not, that slows down the process of issuing the credit by requiring Booking Support to contact passengers for additional information which slows down the process for everyone.

Another benefit of the form is that it answers the regularly repeated questions about the benefits & procedure to get our Shareholder credit issued.

A couple of years ago they eliminated showing an email address...have you done it recently?

But if you fax it in make sure you do it right side up.
Otherwise you'll be wondering why you've done it three times and haven't received any credit.

Does anyone have the Princess C.L. email address to take advantage of the Carnival Corporation Shareholder Benefit Request Form? Plan to send docs by attachment. Thanks!

That form shows only accepting requests via fax or snail mail.

If your printer is also a scanner, try using FaxZero.com to fax it from your computer. I used it last week (as recommended on another thread). It's very simple to use and lets you know when your send has been successful. I got a send receipt within a few minutes after I sent it last weekend and the OBC was posted to my account by mid-day on Monday.

This is frustrating to say the least. I called Princess directly and was given an email address to send my shareholder OBC. It was rejected as a bad email address. I called again and was told that the request can only be faxed or mailed in. She sent me a form; I hope it is not an expired form.

I don't know why they can't accept an email request. That is how it works when I book cruises on Carnival. sigh....

Can only snail mail or fax. Sadly, I don't have a fax. It needs to be submitted more than two weeks prior to cruising. I ran mine to the post office today. Hate to miss out on a $250.00 OBC.

In post #65 there's a link to the current application form which contains the procedure.

They'll accept requests using expired forms or no form at all by providing the necessary information.

Did you see our posts above about using FaxZero? You fax from your computer. It’s as easy as email & free. Problem solved.

A pdf file from the Carnival corp website is attached.

[quote=Bimmer babe;51015395]Why the h**l is it so hard to find this form? It is not on their website--only that there is a cruise benefit, not the form itself. I looked on Google for 30 minutes until I saw it mentioned in a CruiseC

Use the eFax app to fax directly from your mobile device.

A little off subject but the stock symbol CCL (Carnival Corporation & PLC) ended today at $68.24/share. The 52 week low on 10/17/2016 was $45.91. I know some on cc have said they are waiting for the stock to go down before they bought their 100 shares. The second point is that the stock holders benefit has been offered for years (decades?) as does other lines like RCCL. It will continue to be offered as I could just hear the whining and moaning if they ever dared to remove it. Buy your 100 shares and get the OBC (1 per stateroom).

As for the original post, I have for years just sent Princess (fax now) the data they required on a plain sheet of paper along with the stock ownership verification. I am not sure I have ever used the "form".

All that is needed, and all that I have ever used, is a fax cover sheet with the required info. Attach proof and send. Simple as that!!
