Default Stockholder Benefits?

Do stockholders (of Carnival Corp. shares) get any discounts or credits on Holland America since Carnival owns it? I know RCI gives onboard credits to stockholders and was wondering if Carnival did the same.

Yes, Onboard Credit of $250 per cruise. Not sure if that's all categories, but someone here will.

If you search this forum (see upper right corner) for stockholder you'll find a number of threads. Among those I found is this one.

Credit amount depends on length of trip, but is the same in all categories. Here's the link:

Thank you for providing the link. I faxed the information to Seattle this morning and I've already received the OBC on my account. Without this thread, I might have forgotten! It's such a great deal!!

What is great is that it can be combined with HAL's shipboard credit if you booked the cruise while on a cruise.

And several times we have also been able to combine it with AMEX Plat shipboard credit.

We have almost paid for the stock through shipboard credits so it is all home free from here on in.

It's also much better than the RCCL program because there you have to choose between the shareholder benefit OBCs and OBCs that you might get from other sources, like booking onboard. You can't have both. So, thank you HAL!!
