Wow, This is news to me.
How much stock do you need to own? I own 105.4 shares of CCL. What do I need to show to the TA to get onboard credit. Or do I need lots of shares?

I should have read the link first and answered it myself. min of 100 shares so I qualify. But I also sail as military perhaps that nullifies it as a discount rate.

Hi JIM2TAK, I read that also (about sailing at a discounted rate). Who ever sails at full rate? Since it can't possibly mean at any reduced rate it must mean at something like a family rate of a special rate that might be for TA's.

I've been asking many people about that cabin credit statement not being able to be used for casino or gratuities. The TA I deal with says that Princess instructed them to put it in their online advertisements. I asked the Princess Captain rep on our last 3 cruises about it & they say they've never heard of it & that my cabin credit was usable in any way. I suppose the stock cabin credit fall under the same hazy rules & not to be concerned about how it's used. Now my next concern it when to buy the stock. With all the uncertainty about recession it might be cheeper in the next few months.

Stock Tracker rates it very high buy right now. It is near the lowest it has been in 52 weeks. However I also track the CCL stock vs my daughter's contract, and it may be coincidence but stock goes down when she is on vaca and goes up when she returns. If you are interested: she takes vaca in June this year and returns in August.

It sounds inviting but I haven't paid my income taxes yet!

CruiseDad, I would call the Reservation Admin. number listed. I didn't take the language to exclude promotional fares. When they typically mention reduced rates it means something different than the promotions. If anyone finds out, please post back.

I'm in the process of talking my wife into buying CCL stock (Yes I already know it was a better buy a few weeks ago) & I'm now questioning the fact when do you have to own the stock to get Princess cabin credit? Can the stock be purchased after the cruise has been booked? Is there a cutoff date in relation to the cruise date?

Rich, The way I am reading the info., it says application prior to departure date. You should call the number they have listed for each line to make sure.

Why did you have to bring this back up? I am still shaking my head as to why I didn't buy back in at under $37 and the yield was above 4%.

Good luck if you call to make sure, or anyone here knows for sure.

My wife questioned me about how much cabin credit were getting on our next cruise & my answer was $0. This is unusual for us since we book way in advance always looking for the best perks but this cruise was decided very suddenly as we have to use up some airline credits & we opted for a cruise again in place of a bus tour. She was all against buying the stock a few weeks ago but & probably still is now that the price is up but I thought I'd at least have an answer for her in the mean time.
Thanks.
Buy high & sell low is my motto.

I have inadvertantly done that a few times myself. I won't even speak of the recent FRPT disaster.

Best wishes and regards,

Dwayne
