I used Travel Insured ins for my last cruise. Someone on these boards told me about them. Anyway I was one of the lucky ones in September that got to stay out 2 extra days because of the hurricane but still had extra things like a hotel, taxi to hotel, food, change of flights, ect. I submitted a claim less than a month ago and received my check in the mail yesterday. They paid for everything, I was was VERY pleased. My sister that went with me had to see the Dr. while on board and they also paid for that. The are really reasonable. If you are looking for ins check them out. travelinsured.com. I think for the 3 of us was $130 total. It insures your flight, lost baggage, and the cruise. I will for sure use them for my next trip, lots cheaper than the cruise line and it covers our air.
That is a wonderful example of the importance of travel insurance. There is all kinds of insurance companys. Best to shop for your needs, ie: age, medical conditions, length of trip, etc. We have used different ones over the years. I will try your suggestions for the next cruise.

Due to reading these boards we also had travel insurance last time we cruised. We did not need it but it is very important to have. Thanks for pointing it out. I am glad you got the money back and the insurance worked out for you. I am making a note and will try to use this company if we ever cruise again< which I doubt>
