Carnival Stock benefit

Recommended Posts

 Has anyone heard that Carnival is stopping stock or benefits in February 2019. Someone just posted that on one of the sites on. But has no proof of it. He says employee told him on a cruise this week that they were going to discontinue the stock program.

They have not. Employees like waiters or cabin stewards? I doubt any employee knows what a stock benefit is.

The current benefit is through July, 2019 and is renewed annually at the stockholder meeting. Sounds like a bot.

As I also do not believe it, I did go to John healed page and post the question. If I get an answer back I will post it here.

Using mine twice in February, once early in the month and the other on the 28th. I already have the confirmation email and the OBC shows on my statement.

Not that I am encouraging anyone to buy it just for the OBC.

But the stock is priced nice.

 

Do your homework first tough

Did you do via email or fax. I did mine last year via email. I assume the email address is still the same as last year.

I always fax from home. I usually receive an email from CCL within 24-36 hrs.

Do you remember the phone number you faxed to or is it listed on Carnival website somewhere.

Be sure to list your sailing reservation info: your name, vessel, reservation number, sailing date, and a copy from your broker's letterhead with the number of CCL stocks you own.

I'm pretty sure between the OBC and dividends I've been paid back for the cost of my CCL stock.

I received mine today for my sailing on February 9.  I still snail mail mine, and I received my email confirmation today with a snazzy new format.  I snail mailed it Dec. 4 and received confirmation today, two weeks to the day.  That's about usual for this way.

How far in advance can you request the benefit?  Also, if you and your cabin mate both have stock can you both get the OBC?

CCL would like the request at least 2 weeks ahead of sailing date. No, only 1 OBC per stateroom.

What about 2 unrelated people sharing the same stateroom each owning 100 shares? It seems that we both should be entitled to our OBC. 

I'm confused about that part.

The rules are set by Carnival Corp, not Carnival Cruise Lines...only one stockholder benefit per cabin.

Totally agree. I haven't checked CCL price recently but as of a couple of months ago it was a pretty attractively priced stock. With that said buy a the stock for it's real value and not for a small onboard credit. There's so many other ways to make that $100.

Just had the OBC applied to my 3/10 sailing last week, so it is still definitely in force.

They ru-up towards the end of July for the next year, so if the cruise is a way out you will have to wait until after that

Heald neither has any say nor knowledge whether or not the shareholder benefit gets renewed. Although it’s been renewed annually for years, this is not a guaranteed benefit.

My CCL stock shares have increased in value over 37%....so I am going to hang on to it.....OBC or not.

I absolutely agree---however at this point, because of the OBC benefit a large percentage of the shareholders are cruisers who want this!
