Does extended mean more or less than three months?

Are you looking for cancellation and travel interruption insurance of just medical evacuation and/or medical?

www.insuremytrip.com is a great site to compare different policies. We have been using CSA for a while; they have always been reasonably priced and have paid off on a couple of small claims on last two cruises in a timely manner.

I just found out, though, that my TA is able to get cheaper "group" rates at CSA than are available on insuremytrip.com. So, check with your TA after you have done initial research.

BTW, if you are under 75 and are just looking at medical evacuation, I would recommend a policy with medjet.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will check it out. The cruise is 120 days.
So I don't want to just cross my fingers.

With cruise of 120 days you will find your choices are more limited and more expensive and go up very quickly with age.

Good hunting!

I wish I could take 120 day cruise; however, I am still a working stiff.

What type of travel insurance are you looking for?

Package plan that covers Trip Cancellation Insurance among other things.

or

Medical and evacuation insurance or just the medical evacuation insurance?
