I suggest talking to your travel agent and ask what, if any, travel insurance they sell or recommend.
Otherwise I would go to insuremytrip.com and compare policies.
Medical evacuation, pre-existing condition waiver and trip reimbursement are the most important things to look for.
The Carnival insurance is the last option. Cruise line insurance insures the cruise line as much, or more, than it insures you.
