Cruises are a great way to see the world, but they’re different to traditional ‘fly and stop’ holidays. Certain things that happen at sea usually aren’t covered by a standard policy, which is what makes Cruise travel insurance an essential add-on if you’re heading out on the open water.
Cruise travel insurance is specifically designed for those holidaying on a ship, so it takes into account things like medical expenses being far greater than they would be on land. It accounts for other unique issues too, such as missing the cruise’s departure or being confined to your cabin. It even considers the fact that you’re moving from port to port, rather than staying in one place; the planned itinerary could change, and you may miss a port or not get chance to do an excursion you booked. With standard travel insurance, you wouldn’t be covered for these things. But, if you take out travel insurance with Cruise cover, you’re protected – so you can just enjoy your holiday.
