For those booking Costa in the future perhaps this would be a good thing to get....
Carefree Travel Protection
The last thing you want to worry about is a problem on your trip. But because the unexpected does sometimes occur, Costa offers Carefree Travel Protection, a custom- tailored package of benefits to ensure peace of mind while you cruise. Carefree Travel Protection is a comprehensive package of benefits, comprised of the following: the Carefree Cancellation Fee Waiver, the Carefree Travel Insurance and the 24/7 Worldwide Emergency Assistance Programs, designed exclusively for our guests.
Carefree Travel Protection protects your cruise vacation investment should you have to cancel or interrupt your cruise for unexpected, specified reasons. Carefree Travel Protection provides reimbursement in the event of trip and baggage delays and provides medical expense reimbursement if you should fall ill or have an accident during your trip. This is especially important when you travel overseas, because Medicare and many private insurance policies do not provide coverage when traveling outside North America.
While we certainly hope your cruise vacation is nothing but pleasurable, we highly recommend the purchase of Carefree Travel Protection.
Costa’s Cancellation Fee Waiver:
Enables you (as a modification to your Passage Contract) to cancel or interrupt your cruise vacation for specified reasons such as illness, injury or death to you, an immediate family member or a traveling companion, as well as certain other non-medical reasons affecting you or your traveling companion, and receive CASH back for the otherwise non-refundable, unused portion of your prepaid cruise vacation. Should you need to cancel your cruise for a "pre-existing condition", you will receive a Cruise Credit equal to the cancellation fees which can be applied toward future travel. This feature is provided by Costa Cruise Lines Inc.*.
