If my husband and I purchase a total of 100 shares of CCL stock in a jointly held account, we are eligible for the OBC as a couple, is that correct?  I assume for each of us to be eligible, we would have to purchase as separate shareholders?  Or is the OBC "per cabin" regardless?

Thank you!

Unfortunately it is per cabin. 

While it is "per cabin", having the stock in a jointly held account would allow each of you to get the credit should you decide to go on an individual cruise, for example "Mother-Daughter", "Girls Night Out", "Boys Gambling" etc.

Great idea!  And...if we book a B2B ( two 7 day segments under separate booking numbers), we would get the shareholder benefit for each?

 

Correct.  PLUS, if you submit them at the same time (along with a note that you are on two 7 day B to B, you should get $125 per cruise!  HAL picked this up for me without me even knowing, but just to be sure, I would mention it to them.  I submitted my two faxes at the same time so I guess they easily figured it out.

 

Also good idea to put stock in a joint account, as previously mentioned, that way either of you can use it.  But of course, only one per cabin.

Were yours under separate booking numbers?  We have a 28 day cruise planned that is 14/14 segments but I think it is under one number.

Yes - separate booking numbers

Sorry, another question!  The fine print says that the shareholder benefits are not valid if your cruise is fared under a "reduced rate".  So for example, if you book under a promotion, like View and Verandah, is this considered a reduced rate?  Or how about the casino rate, which we have attached to our name for some unknown reason?  😉

Thanks!

We met someone who was retired from the travel industry and she was traveling on a discounted deal and wasn't eligible to use the Carnival stock obc plan.

The Carnival Shareholder benefit web page is more specific, no travel agent or casino rates.  We just purchased our 100 shares and I wondered about our upcoming Circle Hawaii cruise.  HAL gave us a large amount of future cruise credit from our last cruise when I paid to upgrade to a Neptune Suite when we surely would have been upgraded for free.  So we have ended up in a VA for less than the cost of the cheapest inside cabin.  I faxed the required information to HAL and a few hours later I received an email stating that $250 OBC had been added to our Hawaii cruise.  I think you would still get the benefit with the View and Verandah sale.  You can always call the HAL # on the Carnival shareholder benefit web page.

Normal HAL promotions, like V&V, will not affect the ability to get the shareholder benefit.  I believe the clause is there for travel professionals who book on Interline rates which are heavily discounted.  Those people do not get to claim the shareholder benefit.

Neither of your examples are “reduced rate”.  Casino discount does not affect the CCL stock privilege.

 

BUT, if you have a dirt cheap cabin like the casino offers where insides are often free on a 7 day cruise (not the same as the casino discount) those sailings are at a reduced rate and do not qualify for the CCL stock OBC.  Another example are Interline bookings, TA special rates, etc.

 

I get the casino discount as well on many of my cruises and the CCL OBC is always applied 🙂
