How to buy stock in carnival

I have never bought stocks before and considering getting 100 shares of CCL.  So, I just opened up an Ameritrade Account.  I opened the account jointly with DH.  Was this a mistake. If I buy 100 shares of CCL in the joint account - will we still get the OBC or does all the stock have to be in 1 persons name.  Just not sure how to proceed - leave as is or open individual accounts.  

joint is better if you ever sail without the other. you are limited to one shareholder credit per room. if you ever sail with 2 cabins, you can own 200 shares and each get the credit in your room. they would probably give you each the credit with other 100 shares, but that is not the intent of the program.

When the bottom dropped out several years ago and so many including myself lost a lot. Carnival and Royal stock plummeted. I bought and I am so happy that I did. One thing to keep in mind. There is no vacation that you can get for the dollar you spend to compare to a cruise. With Carnival having I think 250 ships on order. Cruise on.

I have seen you quote this 250 ships before, I dont think that can be right. the whole Carnival Corp umbrella has about 100 ships currently. there is no way they would commit to 250 more ships...

I have to wait until Thursday for the funds to transfer to my E Trade account. I hope and prays it stays this low until then! I don't know the transfer will take so long, but I don't see any other way around it... 

that 3 days might save you money. or it might not, but either swing will not be material in the long run.

I did my transfer ($3000) from our U.S. Bank Savings account this morning directly to E*Trade (brand new account) and it took about 15 seconds. You should double check. I thought I would have to wait as well, but boom, and it was there.

After doing some research, I could have done a wire transfer immediately... oh well. Hopefully the wait will save me some money. It already hopefully save me some as it dropped more throughout the day today.

Shareholders who hold at least 100 shares of CCL are eligible for $50 OBC for 6 days or less cruises, $100 for 7 days to 13, and $200 for cruises 14 days and longer.  You mail or fax proof of ownership (I email mine, but that option isn't listed).  Proof is a current stock statement or purchase order filled.
The benefit has been renewed each year and covers all CCL brands from Cunard to Princess and all others.

Is there a specific email address one must use to send proof of ownership?

Here is a sample letter I found on another thread

 

Here is the e-mail I send to guestadmin@carnival.com

 

 

Dear Guest Admin,

 

Please accept this e-mail as a request for shareholder benefits applicable to a (number) night cruise.

 

My name is ****** ****, and I am booked to sail on the Carnival ******* (Ship Name) out of ******** (Port Name) on **/**/** (Date), Booking Number ******.

 

I have attached a PDF file (filename.pdf) of the relevant pages of my stock account statement as proof of ownership of 100 shares of Carnival Corporation Stock (ticker CCL).

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

 

Sincerely,

Do they notify you when your shareholder OBC has been approved? I submitted mine last week, and haven't heard anything and nothing showing online. Our trip is on the 29th.

Sometimes I have gotten an email, other times it is on the general cruise docs.

I would fax it in again. It can't hurt. Some people have emailed successfully.

How long can Carnival stay liquid, with their balance sheet and debts on the new ships.   Six months?  12?    Anyone have a link to their debt payments from last year.   I can't really see Trump bailing them out.

https://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/ccl/financials/balance-sheet

 

Carnival 2019 at some point in time.

 

Assets   $45 Billion

 

Liabilities not including shareholders.  $19.7 Billion

 

 

My gut feel for the Cruise Line Industry is if the USA Government offers a bail out or Loan Holiday etc, then they can survive 6 months to 12 months. With a 2 to 4 year recovery period.

 

USA would be Crazy to let it's major infrastructure industries like Airlines or Shipping / Cruise ships collapse. It would be a MASSIVE Christmas present to Government funded Chinese companies to come in and pick up these USA assets at Fire-sale prices.

Well...we just bought CCL our very first purchase, stumbled through the process but we did it! Hopefully we'll get to see some benefits from it in the future 🙂

 

Well...we ended up getting more shares, with CCL price drop in the past few days. 😀

I haven't found an answer for this question. If I have 100 shares and my boyfriend has 100 shares is the OBC per person with shares or 1 OBC per booking confirmation ? Thanks

If either one. or both of you own 100 shares, then your OBC will be:

Onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 6 days or less - $50.00

Onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 7 to 13 days - $100

Onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 14 days or longer -  $250

 

That was copy/pasted from Carnival's website for Shareholder credit.

Per state room. Hope that helps. If both are in the same state room. Only one can get the OBC.

The email address is really not for sending the request. They want either snail mail or a fax. You can fax for free. For the info google CARNIVAL CORPORATION & PLC SHAREHOLDER BENEFIT REQUEST FORM
