Nationwide Choice Cruise

The Nationwide Choice Cruise plan is only available to those who will be traveling on a cruise during their trip. It offers similar coverage to the Universal Cruise plan, but with higher benefit amounts.

Unlike the Universal Cruise plan, this cruise insurance plan features an optional benefit, Cancel for Any Reason. This will reimburse up to 75% of your pre-paid, non-refundable trip cost if you have to cancel your trip for something other than a covered reason up to two days prior to departure. With this benefit you will not be reimbursed with future cruise vouchers, but with an actual percentage of the money you originally paid for your cruise.

This plan also includes important coverage such as trip cancellation and trip interruption which allows you to cancel prior to departure or interrupt after departure for a covered reason. It also includes baggage coverage, travel delay, missed connection, medical, and emergency medical evacuation coverage to list a few. Cancel For Any Reason coverage is optional on this plan for residents of some states if all eligibility requirements are met.

Everyone hopes for a vacation that goes off without a hitch, but there is always the chance that the unexpected may happen. The Choice Cruise plan can provide coverage so that a lost bag or a flight delay won't completely ruin your trip.

I needed a "cancel for any reason" option due to a pre-existing condition. Nationwide provided one. Fortunately, I was able to make the trip!

I didn’t need to use the insurance but I’m always glad to have it in the event of an emergency.

Did not have to make a claim so I cannot comment on that part of having the insurance. The Plan is pricey (they all are) but allows me to apply closer to my date of travel because the pre-x exclusion applies if the Plan is purchased before the FINAL payment is due, instead of within 14-21 days of the (usually refundable) deposit which could be a year or more before the trip. The benefits seem to cover all my needs.
