If anyone's interested in fcds - i've just booked with cunard using one for me and one for the wife, and the benefit is $600 on board credit. Although a powerful incentive, the agent thinks (but wasn't certain), that cunard are also withdrawing them.

Just read that p&o are stopping future cruise deposits. Seems mad to me - for a fifty/hundred quid obc, p&o get to sell another cruise. The few times I've been with p&o recently I've always bought a fcd, hence getting my custom for another cruise. Of course, a hundred quid obc costs p&o much less than £100 - probably in reality a cost to the company of £5/£20. Can't see any logic at all in withdrawing fcds, they seem brilliant and inexpensive marketing and salesmanship to me.

Pierre. They have been upgraded today with a price target of 5700.Wish I had bought 200 shares instead of the minimum 100 for the on board spend. If they continue riding there may well be a share split and if the SharePerk remains at 100 shares will give opportunity to take some profits and still keep the perk.

kirton, yes you're right. As i say, i can't remember where i got my buyback info from. Shame i wasn't more wrong and thought the buyback was still on going, i probably wouldn't have sold. What a great rise. Are these a bid target or something? Someone must be buying a lot of them, every day. Cruises are certainly more costly at the moment than previously, looks like they are getting filled up, even though there are a few new mega ships entering service.

Pierre I thought the share buybacks had already stopped. The last one was on 13 April and prior to that date they were every day since...... A long time previously!

After i bought the initial 100 to get the benefits, i looked into the company more, and then bought a load more at around £36. The rise since then has been great, so i just got rid of most of them leaving just 100 again. Been a great ride, helped no doubt by the enormous share buybacks. My diary tells me the buybacks are stopping soon (don't know where i got that info), so it looks a decent time for me to take the profit. I bought tate earlier today, so it's a switch into those, i think i get double or more yield.

Hi Pierre Good to see that you are field testing the company's products. I have found Cunard better than P&O so sure you will enjoy. Regretting buying only the minimum amount of shares to get the cruise credit as the price has gone up 30% since

Cruise ship operator Carnival reported better than expected revenue yields for the first quarter and said bookings for the rest of 2017 were well ahead of the prior year with prices rising faster than costs. Driven by increased demand, particularly for Caribbean jaunts, For the first quarter ended 28 February, the London- and New York-listed group posted adjusted net income of $279m and earnings per share of $0.38, which was down 7% and 3% on a very strong equivalent period last year. Statutory results, which include a positive $73m of unrealised gains and losses on fuel derivatives and other items in 2017 and $159m of losses for 2016, saw net income increase almost 150% to $352m and EPS up 167% to $0.48. Quarterly net revenue yields in constant currency increased 3.8% compared to Q1 in the prior year, well up on December's 1.5-2.5% guidance range. On the outlook for the year, management said cumulative advance bookings for the remainder of 2017 were "well ahead of the prior year at considerably higher prices". For the full year, net revenue yields in constant currency are expected to be up approximately 3.0% compared to the prior year. In parallel, excluding fuel, net costs per available lower berth day in constant currency are expected to be up approximately 1.0% compared to the prior year. Therefore, full year adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $3.50-3.70, compared to $3.45 last year. Though in the second quarter, adjusted EPS is expected to fall to a range of $0.43-0.47, compared to $0.49 last year due to unfavourable changes in fuel prices and currency exchange rates. "We are off to a good start delivering another quarter of operational improvement on top of a very strong first quarter last year," said chief executive Arnold Donald. "Our performance was driven by increased demand, particularly for our core Caribbean itineraries, leading to higher year-over-year ticket prices which enabled us to overcome the significant negative impact of both fuel and currency to exceed the high end of our guidance range." He said there was less inventory remaining for sale in 2017 compared to the prior year, resulting in increased earnings guidance. "We are clearly benefiting from our efforts to increase cruise consideration through guest experience innovations, creative marketing, and public relations programs. We are reaching consumers through multiple touch points and laying the foundation for continued earnings improvement and sustained double digit returns on invested capital," he said.

Company has just announced bookings are up. We might just join them.

Well the share price is continuing it's substantial general rise. The buybacks help of course. If the price of my next cruise is anything to go by then prices are hardening too. From my early booking offer, the price on a late booking is up 30% from the same source, plus I got free parking which isn't now being offered. If that is general, then we can expect bumper profit increases next results time. I'm not sure what net effect the weak pound has.

Well Carnival holds some pretty upmarket brands don't they? Isn't Seabourn in that exact same sector? Surely they, and other brands, must pick up some of those who've lost a cruise i should imagine. Fred Olson seem to think they can tempt some with a 25% discount (maybe Carnival should match that).

Egypt, Middle East and Turkey etc have become less popular - or even off the schedules. Their prime market was people wishing to delve into "antiquities". Doubt if Carnival brands will benefit much from their demise (or its sister brand, Voyages of Discovery) as the client profile is quite different - upmarket, sophisticated travellers looking for all-inclusive professionally-led tours etc.

With Swan Hellenic (?) going belly up there'll be a few more people looking for someone else to give them a cruise. Maybe not so good for those after a last minute cruise though with less unbooked cabins I would expect.What went wrong with the very well established swan Hellenic?

After holding for a few yrs , time to leave here for me ; 4230 will see me out. Looks a bit toppy though admit a long term hold is also a good option.

I have Elite status on Princess which I don't think expires - free laundry! Interestingly P&O nights count towards Princess status but not vice versa.

optimist P & O points never expire either. However, the top two tiers (designed mainly for regular passengers) work on a rolling three year basis for the number of nights on board (Baltic 80 nights, Ligurian 200 night once you have more than 2,500 points - ie 500 above the standard top tier Caribbean level). Inevitably, therefore, unless one takes a long cruise within a three period or have, say, 3 x 14 nighters a year, then one will often revert to the standard top tier level or go in and out of it on a regular basis. As I said before the additional "benefits" are really quite marginal so really not too bothered one way or the other.

Hi Graham, yes rules are rules, but often it's worth a try. I don't mind really, having looked at the benefits on the bottom tier there aren't really any which i'd benefit from. I think the next tiers benefit we get a glass of champagne, so nothing really to write home about! I suppose i could have fitted in a 2 or 3 nighter to Amsterdam or somewhere if there really were some decent benefits. Oh well, looks like a while until i reach a tier with anything worthwhile, like priority boarding, early arrival, special meal and drinks first thing (so I've been told). I forgot to mention i do have some lowly club status with msc, and i thought p&o might match that (i think they used to but not any more). I must say, they do like you to have spent an awful lot before they give you a bowl of fruit and a pair of 50p slippers! As a shareholder, that's good business i suppose.
