Nationwide Mutual Insurance Prime
I didn't really think of needing or using this plan until I saw the coast guard helicopter hovering over the ships bow taking a passenger to Puerto Rico to keep her or him alive. Then it hit me as to why my kids keep saying "buy trip insurance". And then again as I saw 5 people boarding the boat in the first port of call... Go a day early AND get the trip protection. Nationwide was a good value!

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
This was not worth purchasing and was absolutely more stress than help. Our trip was delayed two weeks because we tested positive for COVID. I thought at least we have trip insurance to help us with the cost of changing the trip. Unfortunately, we tested positive for COVID about 36 hours before traveling, and we were informed that we needed to have a doctor appt before our departure time in order to receive any coverage. Not to mention the plan administrators told me it was fine to go on the trip anyways because my destination did not have COVID testing restrictions. You are not supposed to go into see a doctor for COVID unless you have symptoms requiring emergency treatment. Luckily I convinced a doctor to meet with me virtually that day just to write a note for my travel insurance. Hopefully this would have worked but it turned out I couldn't file a claim anyways.

After this, we were informed that in order to have coverage on our new trip dates, we would not be able to file any claims for reimbursement of the costs of changing the trip.

In addition, when looking at the policy later, any change fees for flights are covered at a very low amount (not even close to the policy coverage amount for cancellation).

All in all, we did not use the policy and could have used the money from the policy for our flight change fees, which would be much less stressful and cheaper. I recommend getting flights and hotels that can change somewhat easily instead of getting this policy.

Policy does not cover expenses If a third party excursion provider fails to get you back to the ship prior to leaving port- you have to look at these third party providers very carefully before deciding if there is risk. Policy with the added cancel for any reason was expensive. There seemed, however, to be fewer qualifiers with filing claims than other policies, so we felt if we had a loss there was a reasonable chance that the claim would be paid. Our trip was successful and we are thankful we did not need to file a claim.

Did not use, but easy to buy and had good coverage, The most important aside from trip interruption and all that is the medical treatment and evacuation with good limits.

Fortunately did not have a need to file a claim with our purchased policy, but the piece of mind knowing it was there in the event it was needed was well worth it.

I have used InsureMyTrip.com for several of the cruises that I have taken. I appreciate the variety of choices based on needs, as well as the ability to compare features of selected policies. I have chosen Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. in the past because they are a reputable name in the insurance industry and they have policy features that I desire when I cruise. I know I can trust the company in the event that I need to file a claim.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Universal Cruise
Just hope you don't have to file a claim! We paid nearly a thousand dollars for a policy that contains MAJOR exclusions written in the fine print about stolen baggage - both a long list of items and conditions under which they will not cover a loss. We specifically chose a plan with baggage protection, only to be told a month after our claim was filed they would not cover our loss because our travel bags were stolen from a locked car. Find another insurance company that does not play this kind of game with customers to avoid paying for situations you may find yourself in through no fault of your own. Made a rotten travel experience even worse to know the insurance you purchased was worthless.

The insurance gave me peace of mind. Especially since I was in another country. Had more than adequate coverage. Definitely will be using them again.
