Default Missed the ship & no insurance w/ Princess

Has anyone ever missed their cruise and did not have Princess' insurance? How is this situation handled?

You buy trip insurance from Travel America before the date that you take your trip..OM

Happened to my brother in law. He had to pay for a ticket to the next port to catch up with the ship there. Since he didn't have insurance he paid for everything.

suppose you can't make the cruise at all. Would Princess count that as a completed cruise, or just take your money?

mulderfx,

If you have travel insurance from any company, (including Princess) it would depend on what is covered in the policy. If you just decide not to go, the insurance probably wouldn't pay.

If you think there's a chance that a family member (or you) may become ill and you'll need to cancel, be sure that's covered. If you're concerned about missing the ship in a port, be sure the insurance covers that possibility.

You really just need to find a travel insurance policy that fits your needs.

Personally, I would never buy the cruise line's insurance. In the very unlikely chance that the line goes "under" there's a chance you'd lose everything.
