Cruise Travel Insurance

Cruise travel insurance is a travel insurance package plan that focuses on cruise-specific concerns such as medical emergencies at sea, emergency evacuations from the ship, missed connections, and more. Cruise travelers are among the largest users of travel insurance because of the unique risks of cruise trips.

What does a GOOD cruise travel insurance cover?

  1. Cancellation
  2. Illness
  3. Hurricane – Even if the hurricane is over, what if your destinations are damaged so badly you want to reschedule the cruise?
  4. Terrorism
  5. Financial Default – If your cruise operator files for bankruptcy after you have paid your trip expenses, it can be impossible to get a refund. With coverage for financial default, you’ll be protected.
  6. Required to work – Even those with predictable work schedules occasionally have to work extra hours. Trip protection coverage for work reasons means you won’t lose all your pre-paid fees.
  7. Laid off – An unexpected layoff can put a stop to your travel plans. Travel protection that includes cancellations for this work reason ensures you’ll be able to recover your expenses.
  8. Delays/missed connections
  9. Lost, stolen, damaged baggage
  10. Baggage delays
  11. Medical emergencies – With travel insurance that includes medical coverage, you will be able to get and pay for high quality health coverage in any country.
  12. Emergency evacuations – An emergency evacuation off the ship to attain on-shore medical care is expensive enough, but consider that once you are stable, you’ll also need to get home. With many injuries or illnesses, taking a commercial flight is not allowed, and you may need a specially equipped medical transport staffed with medical caregivers. Good travel insurance plans provide up to $1,000,000 in emergency medical transportation costs.
  13. Trip interruption.
  14. 24/7 Worldwide Assistance
    All well-established and reputable travel insurance companies provide multi-lingual assistance services for travel-related emergencies, such as locating the closest reliable medical facility. Get the help you need in a language you understand.
