Default Cruise line insurance vs. Private Company

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on whether it is better to take insurance right from the cruise line...or to take insurance from a private company. Are the cruise lines more willing to help you in case of an emergency if you have taken their own insurance??

I personally go with a third party insurer. A third party insurer will cover default. That is if the cruiseline goes bankrupt.

I believe that if a cruise line is going to offer insurance they will do so with THEIR best interests in mind.

Take care,

I have to also agree with Mike, go with a third party insurance company.
