Some one told me about a hundred dollar on board credit if you own a least 100 shares of stock. I checked it out this weekend, and today I bought 100 shares. I'll get a $100 on board credit for every cruise I book in the future. Even the 3 I've aready booked. In the last year their stock has gone from $32 to $43.50. Even if the stock just floats around the $45 range, it's worth having. So, you can get a hundred dollar credit for booking on a ship and another hundred for owning shares. That's $200 off on every cruise. Plus, if you are a diamond member, you can get $200 off on a balcony cabin. Here are the shareholders benefits:
$250 Onboard Credit per Stateroom on sailings of 14 or more nights.
$200 Onboard Credit per Stateroom on sailings of 9 to 13 nights.
$100 Onboard Credit per Stateroom on sailings of 6 to 8 nights.
$50 Onboard Credit per Stateroom on sailings of 5 nights or less.

Don't said I didn't tell ya...

I knew Carnival had a deal for stock owners, but didn't realize RCCL had a program. I am going to buy 100 shares too! Even beyond the credit, it is a good stock to own.

I know there are lots of things you can use that 100 dollars on , on the ship but lets just say you only use 50 . do they carry the other 50 on to your next cruise . or is it just up to
you to spend it or not .

Since RCCL and Celebrity are owned by the same company, does the purchase of the RCCL stock entitle you to the same onboard caredit benefit on Celebrity cruises? Also, someone mentioned that Carnival has some similiar deal for their stock purchase. What is the exact information on that?

Thanks, Sonny, for the information about the stock purchase and onboard credits.

I just posted a minute ago re the stock, and the "new cruiser" came up for me. How do you change that? I have been on three cruises, and have three upcoming ones within the next six months, so I hate to remain a "new"cruiser.

SD, the ratings are according to the number of posts you have made on the board. It's the same on cruisecritic and other boards. Welcome to Cruise-Chat and have a great holiday!

As Penny notes, the titles have nothing to do with your number of cruises. They have to do with your "karma" points which is how many posts you have made. Here is the breakdown:

Karma Levels
Level Title Required Points
1 New Cruiser 0
2 Cruiser 5
3 Serious Cruiser 25
4 Experienced Cruiser 100
5 Master Cruiser 500
6 Cruise Guru 1000

And I see that penny3333 is about to move up to Cruise Guru status!

Thanks Penny and Dave for clarifying the designation issue. And a Happy Thanksgiving to both of you.
