Does this apply to cruises already booked, ie. in November and December,2008, if I was to buy shares today.

Yes, it would apply to both of these if you applied for it and that is a very simple operation of e-mailing Linda Buchanan@rccl.com. They will not give you the ok for cruises in May and onward yet because that has to be ratified as it is next years shares agenda but every year so far it has just happened ok. I got mine through a local broker who deals with stock market shares and was able to deal with US shares as well so look for someone local with a good reputation. Regards, ... Neil.

The onboard credit also applies if you hold any Carnival shares,at a very similar rate per cabin (not per person) Carnival owns Princess,P&O ,Cunard and many other cruise lines! P.S. are your names for real??

So if you bought at 21.48, your £1200 would now be worth £1092 - don't forget the value of shares goes down as well as up!!

Hello, could you please let me know ASAP where I could buy 100 shares in the UK in order to get the benefits as I am really struggling to find a broker willing to do me the deal? they all tell me that the shares will have to be kept in a nominee account and I do not know if I can still get the benefits if the shares are held like this....many thanks for letting me know.

I have used SAGA to buy and store my 100 shares, as long as you email your proof of your share holding, that is all that is required. A good time to buy is now.

Fred Olsen and me! A match mad...

By Holly Crabtree

Holly Crabtree's blog

After recently returning form a 6 day adventure to the Fjords on Fred Olsen Balmoral it is easy to see why people have such affectionate things to say about them. Many of my colleagues feel the same way regarding Fred Olsen. It is just the feel of the ship when you embark it just feels like you are back home. Maybe this has something to do with the smaller ships so much more personal and so much more warmth than the larger ships.I sailed from Newcastle which was fab for me living in Leeds , o...
