I read somewhere that this has improved, and is no longer subject to a maximum onboard credit cap when combined with other forms of onboard credit. Does someone know if this is true, and can you direct me to the language?

Try going to the CUK (Carnival PLC) website. I saw thw shareholder benefits verbiage on there but did not read it that closely.

Jim, I could not find the website you were citing or any relevant website with language on the stockholder onboard credit benefit. Could you put a link to the site? Thanks.

Here you go.

But, after reading it, I can't see anything that says if their is a on board credit limit...sorry.

Thanks a lot Jim. At least I have a point of areference now, with a phone number. I did call and got a recording (of course). I left a message and hopefully will get a call back.

I just got a call back, and the policy DID change Feb. 1. It is now combinable now with other onboard credits.

Thanks for posting the question SD. It does read different from what it did last year concerning the exclusions.

It also states "This benefit is not transferable and cannot be used for casino credits/charges and gratuities charged to your onboard account."
How in the world do they separate the on board credit that comes from different sources? Such as credit from a TA or from an advertised special or future cruise booking. It must be an accounting nightmare.

RichC-they do not separate it onboard, its just a bluff.
And its true that it is now combinable with FCC or other shipboard credit. I Have $550 cabin credit on a upcoming 23 day trip $250 shareholder & $300 FCC.

I suppose if you had $200 OBC and your stock holder credit added $100 for a total of $300, and your ONLY sign and sail charges were your auto gratuities, they could then make the case that they wouldn't have to refund you money. But realistically, not many people ONLY have the auto gratuities on their accounts. So in most ways it is a bluff, but only in the fact that you would have to not spend any extra money on board. Not likely.
