10% profit in a month since you posted toffeeman. Hope you were not shorting this given your negative commentary.

The assets only have significant value if they are generating profits and cash - so book value is not meaningful (I doubt Amazon would wish to by CCL :))

I recently tried to book a cruise while on board Cunard and they wanted 15% deposit which I thought was not very generous for a cruise 18 months away. I think they had reduced deposit on some sailings but their prices did not seem very special.

No problem, thought you had mis-read. We've found the £50pp deposit very reassuring (you also get an extra - variable -onboard credit with it) when booking a cruise well in advance. Never had to do it, but if you need to cancel or even just change your mind about a particular cruise, then the loss is neither here nor there. I understand from chatting to officers on board that P & O have found it an effective marketing tool. It's also been found that - in spite of my comment above - very few people who take advantage of it actually do cancel. All good for CCL in getting early commitments - and good for passengers' cashflow!

Sorry Graham, I've just re read your post (more carefully!). You're saying the benefit of booking on board is that the commitment is £50 instead of 15%, so that may well be the same for cunard, i've no idea. I booked on line, so that's why i'm committed to 15%. yes, that £50 commitment instead of 15% is a good benefit.

That seems to be different at Cunard. Yesterday I booked an early booking offer on the queen vic with a £2 deposit. The terms were that 15% has to be paid within the next 8 weeks, and that is payable whether i cancel or not. I booked this one on line via iglu. It was a decent price to start with, but half way through booking and not mentioned before, it announced that this comes with $200 obc. Strange marketting, but i suppose it does encourage those having second thoughts while booking to just do it. I really can't see how these £1pp initial deposits encourage people to book.

The real benefit of booking on board (on P & O at least) is that you only pay a £50pp deposit rather than the usual 15% with no further commitment until the balance is due. So, if you cancel for whatever reason prior to the balance being paid you're only liable for £50pp rather than the 15%.

The OBC shareholder benefit is a welcome but relatively small incentive compared to other OBC they used to give. The combination of shareholder, future cruise deposit and second sailing offer for Cunard nets the two of us $1350 for our next cruise. Unfortunately, the future cruise deposit scheme has now been stopped, but the same benefit can be had by booking on board (but the second sailing offer wouldn't then be offered I expect).

What's going on again with the share price? Maybe it's time to sell?

Yes I do know about the shareholder OBC benefit. Had it twice now, well worth it.

Those holders who cruise with Carnival (P&O etc) - you do know about the free on-board credit Shareholders' Benefit Scheme, I assume? Cruise over 13 days gets you £150.

Optimist and others - Thanks for your thoughts on cabin sound insulation, yes I'm sure you would be unlucky to find a 'moron' in the next cabin haha. I agree with all about the growth in passenger numbers, there are a few headwinds (Oil price etc.) but the best companies in the business should prosper, I leave it to others to decide which those companies are. I still might invest in Carnival but not right now.

Regardless of the cruise experience, the business itself is just not being run well. People like to cruise Carnival, and 'staff' like to be on the ships (though I can't find comment on what it is like to be office staff on shore), yet the share price is suffering. Returns are dropping, debt is high, and there may well be a glut of cruise ships resulting in less capacity sold going forward. Like so many areas of commerce, when a rise is seen in a particular area, people flock to be in that business area; with the result it becomes overpopulated. That is what seems to be happening in the cruise market. And the lead time between committing to and ordering new ships is quite long, yet cannot easily be gotten out of when the pot stops boiling. Look at these cruise businesses and which lines they own: Carnival Corporation & plc AIDA Carnival Cruise Line Costa Cruises Cunard Line Holland America Line P&O Cruises P&O Cruises Australia Princess Cruises Seabourn Cruise Line Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Azamara Club Cruises Celebrity Cruises Pullmantur Cruises Royal Caribbean International SkySea Cruise Line TUI Cruises Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. Norwegian Cruise Line Oceania Cruises Regent Seven Seas Cruises Whilst some of these are 'up market,' they generally compete with each other: so too many ships for the numbers booking, is a major problem. I see that that is what's happening now - just look at onboard prices now, in order to up the revenue - and therefore will cut my exposure to this area until there is an improvement, which will be in a few years, at least. (The line I cruise on - except when cruising with my family, which includes 11 and nine year old sons, and all others other than me being under 54 - is Silversea.)

Agree with Grahamburn, the sound proofing is generally excellent and these are all modular now and just wheel in and plug together. You may have seen it on the TV recently - hxxp://www.channel4.com/programmes/building-giants/on-demand/65485-004 very interesting and well recommended if you are interested. In my experience the noise comes from within the cabin! Creaks, mini bar rattling etc and the gentle drone of the AC; which I actually quite like! Fortunately, the monumental drop is not continuing today, although it is still lower.

Agree. Sound proofing between cabins and between decks tends to be excellent.

Losos I think you worry too much. In all the not insignificant time that I have spent cruising, I have never experienced a problem with rowdy neighbours.
