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.

This plan offers optional Cancel for Any Reason coverage for residents of most states that meet all eligibility requirements. This will reimburse up to 75% 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 within 14 days of initial 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.

Due to the pandemic we did not travel. All parties involved were cooperative and issued a refund.

We purchased the Luxury Policy through Nationwide for our retirement trip of a lifetime. We were to be gone 2.5 months. It included a 21 day cruise and then island hopping around French Polynesia, then flying to Australia to go to the Great Barrier Reef. Our cruise began in Sydney Australia on 2/28/20, we were supposed to disembark in Tahiti on 3/20/20. Due to COVID-19, our cruise was interrupted and we were sent home from Hawaii. We had 4 flights included in the covered cost of our policy: the flight to Sydney, island hopping flights around French Polynesia, the flight from Tahiti to Cairns, the flight from Cairns back to our home in California. We were fortunate and obtained refunds on two of the flights we did not utilize (thank you Air Tahiti and Expedia). The third, the flight from Tahiti to Cairns was not refunded and was denied by coverage by Nationwide. They said they do not cover pre-purchased flights that you are not able to utilize after a trip interruption. They would only be covered in the event of a trip cancellation. The total we are out is $1,246. I have to say, I'm not impressed! When you insure the value of a trip, including all of the costs that are non-cancellable and non-refundable, the coverage should reimburse for the insured costs that a traveler is out of pocket. They refuse to do so. I also acknowledge that some policies do not cover the expenses due to a pandemic, that is not the case with our policy because we purchased it in October, 2019, long before we had heard of COVID-19. Buyer, be careful to determine what is covered and what is not. I have purchased 5 or 6 Nationwide Luxury Cruise policies in the past and not had any issues. This is a first, but after paying $814 in premium to cover a 2.5 month trip and coming home after 1 month, and finding out that they will not reimburse me for this flight, I'm very disappointed in the Nationwide Luxury Cruise policy coverage.

It was very comforting knowing we had a solid, dependable insurance provider during our recent cruise. With all of the health concerns world-wide right now, we were so glad we purchased our policy well in advace of our trip!
