Default How in the world does Cruise Insurance work

Hi,

I just put down my deposits for my 14 day (2 7 day back to back) cruise on Carnival going to both the East and West Caribbean in Dec 2005. I really don't plan on getting cruise insurance until it gets closer like 6 months out or so.

With that being said, what is the whole pre-existing condition and 14 days after deposit thing.

Since I am completely healthy, doesn't that mean that I have no pre-existing condition and thus it wouldn't pertain to me anyways. Or does that mean even if I purchase the insurance way in advance and then get the flu right before my trip in December 2005, they still won't cover a new illness just because I didn't purchase 14 days from the deposit date.

Pre-existing condition is something like Diabetis, Cancer, Heart Disease,etc chronic illness. It has nothing to do with new sickness.

Why would you not purchase the cruise insurance now?

The reason for the hesitation was because the way it was explained to me, I thought that i had to by 2 seperate policies since I am taking two cruises back to back.

However, it has now been explained to me that as long as I am not going home betweem cruises, I only need one policy. I agree that there really isn't any reason why I shouldn't get the insurance and will. I plan to go with travelex which doesn't need to be purchased until 11/29/04.
