Maybe if more people read articles about mishaps and travel issues; it will get them to thinking is it really worth losing thousands of dollars; for just a few hundred dollars. This was an expensive lesson to learn.

It does seem odd that Princess has no record of his call?? Did he use a travel agent?? Again, having an agent may have saved him this headache....Plus, this cruise was not cheap by any means, for the small amount extra, he would of been 90% covered....It tough that we have to learn lessens the hard way and we all see this on our boards all the time. Most claim they have no reason to purchase the extra insurance and we see all the time of this happening. We can never know or plan, so, play it safe and insure your trip, like you do your car and home...
I think it's important to point out that he would have needed "cancel for any reason" insurance for what he did. His cruise wasn't cancelled, there was nothing preventing him getting to his cruise. He elected to cancel. Normal insurance wouldn't have done much.

Wouldn't a health risk like radiation contact be an acceptable cancellation? It seems like there are so many different insurances from the trip insurance to medical insurance to cancellation for any reason insurance. Is there any company that offers it all in one insurance package?
