Nationwide Luxury Cruise

The Nationwide Luxury Cruise plan is available to those who will be traveling on a cruise during their trip. It offers the highest benefit amounts of the three Nationwide Cruise plans. This plan is available for those who may be going on longer, more expensive cruises, as it allows for a maximum trip cost of up to $50,000 per person with a trip length up to 120 days.

The Luxury Cruise plan includes important coverage such as trip cancellation and trip interruption, if you need to cancel prior to departure or interrupt after departure for a covered reason. Other comprehensive travel insurance benefits include baggage protection, travel delay, missed connection, medical, emergency medical evacuation and non-medical evacuation coverage to list a few.

Like the Choice Cruise plan, this plan offers optional Cancel for Any Reason coverage for residents of most states that meet all eligibility requirements. This will reimburse up to 70% of your pre-paid, non-refundable trip costs if you have to cancel your trip for something other than a covered reason. With Cancel for Any Reason, cancellation must no later than two days prior to departure. The benefit will allow you to recoup a percentage of the money you originally paid for your cruise.

Among the covered reasons for cancellation or interruption is if a CDC Travel Warning should affect your trip. Coverage is offered in the event you cancel or interrupt your trip due to the unforeseen issuance of a CDC travel warning in your destination during the time of your trip.

Unlike the Universal Cruise plan, but similar to the Choice Cruise plan, this plan includes a pre-existing conditions exclusions waiver. This will reimburse for covered medical care needed due to a pre-existing condition, if the plan is purchased prior to or within the final trip payment and all other requirements are met.

A trip can be planned on a whim or it could be something that has been saved for and dreamed about for a long time. Even with the best planning, a medical issue or a travel delay may arise, and this coverage and assistance services can help you in your time of need.

Not the cheapest, but a national well-known name and customized for cruise vacations. We purchased the cruise care Nationwide policy, which we have purchased in the past for other cruises. However, this time the trip was rerouted right before we left. We filed the claim for itinerary change. It was all filed electronically, with an automated response. We didn't hear anything regarding the claim for weeks, so wasn't sure what the status was, which I did not like. But in a few weeks, we received compensation that was exactly as stated in the policy. Other than the lack of status updates, we are very pleased with this policy - will definitely purchase again!

Fortunately we did not need to put in a claim this time. In the past Nationwide has been great. I would expect, if we had to put in a claim, it would have been processed as easily as before.

I had to submit a claim due to a death in the family on the day we were leaving for our cruise. I called Nationwide to get the claim form and the representative was very attentive, and pointed out the most important sections to complete fully and accurately for the claims adjuster. Thirteen days after submitting my claim online, I received a phone call to get some additional information. They wanted a copy of the obituary or death certificate. She was able to find the obituary online with my extra information. A week and a half later, I received a full refund in the mail. Very satisfied.
