Last updated on 03/28/2023

WARWICK, R.I., June 21, 2021 -- Today, InsureMyTrip, the nation's first-and-largest unbiased travel insurance comparison site, said the number of policies sold for future cruises hit their highest levels since February 2020 — up 60 percent from four weeks ago. This comes as the first trial cruise set sail from the United States in over a year.

"Travel insurance has always been top-of-mind for cruisers. We expect the cruise industry to really pick up speed following the pandemic-related slump — and we are doing everything we can to ensure cruisers have the right travel insurance," says Cheryl Golden, vice president of ecommerce for InsureMyTrip.

Travel insurance agents urge travelers to buy cruise-specific travel insurance from InsureMyTrip, an unbiased and trusted third-party travel insurance comparison site that also offers the most options for insuring redeemed vouchers.

Note: Travel insurance plans with an optional "cancel for any reason" coverage offer the most protection for cruisers who may want coverage for COVID-19 related fears. Traditional trip cancellation coverage does not cover COVID-19 related cancellations.
