Find Your Cruise
You need to buy 100 shares but I would use caution at the moment because I am being advised, on the grapevine, that things might change in the very near future although the RCI site still proclaims that the benefits are still relevant. Their share price is very low at the moment though at $16.61 so it is a good time to buy in that respect. Look in Yellow Pages for a stock-brokers and if they don't handle US shares they will tell you who does. It is not a difficult procedure but takes a little while. To look at their site use http://www.rclinvestor.com and that will also tell you how and when they are applied. ... Neil.
Many thanks problem solved now.
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 bought my shares through HSBC private investors, they are held in a nominee account but are your shares and you do get the benefits. If you do not bank with HSBC try your own bank.

I just booked a RCI cruise. I previously had received a $100 shipboard credit for 100 shares of stock. I called today to find out if my next cruise in Jan on the Voyager of the Seas could also receive a ship board credit of $100. They informed me that since I had a $200 upgrade in a cabin because of Diamond status that I could not get the $100 shipboard credit. I guess if I did not get the $200 upgrade, I could get the $100. Apparently this is a new rule started in January 1, 2009 according to the Loyalty telephone number 888-437-1953. I have made money just on the stock since I bought it in the $9 range. I guess it is higher than that now.
Current price of RCI shares is $9.50 a pop. If you have any intention of buying, think about it VERY soon. No way will they stay this low for long!
Buy 100 at that price, you're looking at $950 (plus the fee to buy them, normally less than a tenner), book a few 14 night cruises, and you get half your spend back in onboard credit right away ($250 per stateroom for a 14 night or more cruise, $200 for 10-13 nights, $100 for 6-9 nights and $50 for less than 6 nights). You know it makes sense!
How do I claim the benefits. I have bought shares but don't know how to claim the shareholder benefits. I e mailed the shareholderbenefits address but it keeps coming back as undelivereable. Thanks in advance.
There was a phone number mentioned in a previous answer I believe. You call RCI in Florida and they can sort it out for you.
If you can't find the number, call RCI in the UK and they will be able to advise you.
Thanks you I rang RCI in the UK they didn't know but USA Office directed me to RCI investor site and now the problem is solved. Thanks for your answer.
