Sue, it sure was..most people could not absorb the amazing costs of a serious illnes at sea, when medivac is needed. Also, the heartbreak of a missed ship, plane etc..With insurance at least will be compensated. I know people who didn't buy it, and then regretted it, due to health issues onboard.

One of the people who have been glad to have insurance due to an onboard illness. Bill was reimbursed without a problem.

I spoke with a woman at my church the other day. Her nephew had to be medivaced off a cruise ship because of a ruptured appendix - his parents never bought the insurance - huge costs, but they had no choice, they couldn't endanger his life.

Always buy insurance for cruises, especially at our age......old and decrepit !! <>
When we first started cruising 25 years I did not buy any because we were young and at that age...NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO YOU. Yea right.
