Had to cancel cruise because of a back injury. Called and they emailed the forms and instructions. Emailed the completed forms and supporting documents back and received payment within 10 days. Very good service.

Happily, I didn't have anything to claim, so I can't really comment on whether it was good or bad!

Fortunately, I did not have to use the coverage. However, it felt good to have the peace of mind of having the coverage. Compared to the coverage offered by the cruise line, the cost was terrific and well worth the money.

The thing about good insurance is not needing it. I had good peace of mind. The proof of excellent insurance is when you make a claim and how it is handled. I hope I never need excellent insurance, but excellent piece of mind if much better.
