Royal Caribbean offers benefits for shareholders who own a minimum of 100 shares of Royal Caribbean International’s parent company Royal Caribbean Group (NYSE: RCL).

If you own at least 100 shares of Royal Caribbean Group at the time of your sailing, you can earn onboard credit to use during your cruise.

The amount of onboard credit shareholders receive varies based on the length of the cruise:

  • $1,000 Onboard Credit per stateroom on a World Cruise
  • $250 onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 14 nights or more
  • $100 onboard credit per stateroom on sailings from 6 to 13 nights
  • $50 onboard credit per stateroom on sailings of 5 nights or fewer

Shareholder benefits are available on any sailing on Royal Caribbean Group brands, including; Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, and Silversea Cruises. The only exclusions are charter cruises and Galapagos sailings.

To claim these shareholder benefits, shareholders need to submit a Shareholder Benefit Offer request accompanied by current proof of ownership.

There are four ways to send the form and receive your discounts:

  • Online: Through the online submission form
  • Email: You can send an email with the required documentation to
  • Mail: You can mail the form to RCL Investor Benefit Offer, PO Box 025511, Miami, FL 33102-5511
  • Fax: Alternatively, fax the necessary paperwork to 1-305-373-6699

To ensure you receive your entitled benefit, Royal Caribbean Group asks that the forms be received by their office”approximately 2-3 weeks prior to your sail date.”

You can find the form, along with up-to-date information, on the Royal Caribbean Groups’ investor website.

This shareholder benefit is an excellent way for Royal Caribbean loyalists to combine their love for cruising with their investment portfolio. It encourages shareholder engagement, rewards your investment, and further strengthens Royal Caribbean’s relationship with its dedicated community of shareholders.

It’s important to remember that these onboard credits are per stateroom, not per person. And only the shareholder holding the minimum number of RCL stocks can claim the benefit.

Only one shareholder credit can be claimed per stateroom on a sailing. And if shares are jointly held, 100 shares are required for each onboard credit request on any one sailing.

And there are no restrictions on the number of times you can use the shareholder benefits.

You can redeem the onboard credit on as many cruises as you take as long as you have a minimum of 100 shares.
