Carnival Shareholder Benefit

I just recently enjoyed a 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruise where I learned of the Carnival Shareholder Benefit from a fellow cruiser.  The benefit is great if you like to play the stock game and cruise as well.  Even better if you already own Carnival Stock and travel on their lines.



As it turns out if you own a minimum of 100 shares of Carnival Corporation or Carnival plc, you can get a sweet additional onboard credit.  The credit varies based on cruise length and cruise locations.  Below is the chart for North American Brands, but the full details including instructions on applying for the credit can be found on this link:

  • $250 – Onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 14 days or longer
  • $100 – Onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 7 to 13 days
  • $50 – Onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 6 days or less

This is not for everyone, but if you travel on Carnival or any of their brands this could be an easy extra return on your stock ownership.  Their stock is currently in the $37-38 range.

This benefit is updated yearly and is currently applicable on sailings through July 31, 2015 and the request for the credit should be made at least two weeks prior to the cruise departure date.

Carnival Brands

Many people don’t realize but Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world with many cruise lines under their corporate brand.  Here is a list of all the brands that they own which you can take advantage of this benefit on:

  • Carnival Cruise Lines
  • Princess Cruises
  • Holland America Line
  • Seabourn
  • Cunard
  • Costa Cruises
  • Aida Cruises
  • Ibero Cruises

This is a rather lengthy list of cruise lines all under their Carnival umbrella.

Did you know about this or know of any other tips or tricks for cruising?  Let us know!

    Even better if you are a Military Veteran, close to employee cruise rates!

      The shareholder credit is on top of all other savings so you can double dip here if you are a Military Veteran.

      I can’t. But you should be able to simply open a brokerage account online and purchase directly through them.
