Thank goodness we didn't need to use any aspects of this plan. I can't really evaluate the plan since we didn't have to make a claim. Seemed like a reasonable price for the coverage.

Although I have never needed to make a claim, I find that having trip insurance is valuable. I particularly like the cancel for any reason option because the possibility of work or family responsibilities that fall outside the customary coverages provide added insurance that I will not face a loss of my non-refundable pre-payments. The Global Alert Preferred policy provided the best combination of price and bundle of benefits among the CAR coverages that I researched.

We did not have to file a claim on this voyage (thank goodness), but we always know that Global Alert will be there for us! :)

This was the first time getting insurance on a trip. It was comforting to know coverage was available if needed. I can't comment on how quick or effective the coverage was because thankfully it was smooth sailing with no incidents. Will buy again.

We were re-routed on our way home due to port closure in Tampa due to the impending hurricane. Everyone on the ship was crazed, however, I knew I had insurance and had peace of mind if things didn't work out. Worth the price I paid!

I feel the plan was too expensive but it did cover the concerns I had.

I completed a 4 month cruise with Holland A. A number of folks didn't have insurance and that was very unwise. You need insurance..period. I only had a $182 claim...so I was a lucky one with health.
This is something I would like the insurance companies do for us......
I would like to see insurance coverage to be simple with the lost of luggage. If one doesn't show up....PAY $1500...with NO questions asked. It gone..just pay up..period. People don't want insurance because some of the companies make it by design, very difficult to make a claim for lost luggage. Who has a receipt for everything in the bag. Lucky if you have ONE. This would make it simple and more people would buy insurance if they had a good experience with a company. I haven't lost luggage but for 4 months I heard about the nasty stories of people who have lost luggage.
This claim for a sinus infection took 12 days from filing it to getting the check in the mail. I'm happy.

It gave us peace of mind while traveling. One passenger had to be evacuated from the ship by helicopter and I sure hope they had coverage because I would hate to see that bill!

Although we did not need to use the policy, it was comforting to know it was available in case of an emergency. I will purchase it again on our next cruise.
