After learning about the CCL shareholder benefit here on CC boards, I purchased 100 shares. I faxed in the required documents as shown on the Carnival Corp web page to get my shipboard credit for my upcoming three cruises. How will I know when it has been done? Will Carnival contact me? How long did it take for the shipboard credit to be added? I appreciate any feedback that others have had with this so I'll know what to expect.
This is a nice perk--kind of like getting matching funds on your 401k investment--you get a return before you even get your feet wet!
We bought CCL shares before our cruise in Feb, and due to us being big slackers, we didn't fax our documentation in until the day before we flew to Florida - so 2 days before the cruise.
We took the fax confirmation and ownership documentation with us just in case, but the OBC showed up while on the cruise. Whew!
So needless to say, we didn't get any confirmation from Carnival prior to cruising, but it sure didn't take long for the credit! We'll send it in much earlier for our cruise in Dec though, just to alleviate the worrying...
