Exclamation Cruise insurance

It is very important to emphasize that you need MORE than just cruise cancellation insurance.

Most policies (but be sure to check) cover hospitalization in foreign countries (which your regular policy may not, and Medicare does NOT), and the very very important medical evacuation if necessary.

Flying home to the US in an air ambulance, even from such a close by place as the Caribbean, can easily run $25,000.

In some instances, in fact, we buy ONLY the medical coverage and opt to self insure for the trip cancellation.
