Nationwide Mutual Insurance Luxury Cruise
Since we didn't experience any problems, we didn't make any claims against this policy. However, it was worth the peace of mind knowing we had it.

Definitely easy to apply one insurance plan to the entire trip to cover flights, hotels, excursions, etc. Even though I did not have to utilize the plan, it always gives me peace of mind for the unexpected.

Got this cruise-specific insurance because it also included missed port insurance -- miss a port, and get coverage for the inconvenience. Low and behold, we missed a port on the covered cruise. Had to jump through a lot of hoops to prove that the claim was valid, but in the end, got a payout.

It was good to have peace of mind. Our cruise started with a delay to remove an I'll passenger from the ship by ambulance. Later, in Belfast, our ship was delayed again when a passenger died. These things do happen on vacations. I feel deeply for those passengers and their families and hope that they had insurance.

Luckily, did not need to use the plan. The pre-existing condition waiver should be offered before final payment rather than 10 to 21 after deposit.

    Thank you for your comments.

    The industry standard is for travel insurance providers to offer the pre-existing condition waiver if you purchase their policy within 10 to 21 days (depending on plan) of your initial trip payment. There are some exceptions such as the Nationwide Mutual Choice or Luxury Cruise plans which go by final payment:

    "The Pre-Existing Conditions exclusion is waived if the Insured (a) enrolls in this Policy within Final Trip payment; (b) purchases this Policy for the full cost of his or her Trip; and (c) is medically able to travel at the time the premium is paid."

    Unfortunately you purchased this Choice Cruise plan on 01/29/2019 which was the day after you made your final payment, so you did not qualify for the Pre-Existing Conditions Waiver.

    InsureMyTrip is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Customer Care is available to assist you by phone at 800-487-4722, or by chat, Monday - Friday, 7am-12am EST and Saturday - Sunday, 9am-9pm EST.

Trip cancellation, interruption and delay are very specific per each policy. Be sure to read the fine print as to when they take in effect so as not to be disappointed later when a claim is not paid. Sadly, Nationwide would not cover our trip delay expenses because the delay was not 6 hours or more.

    Travelers will find that every Comprehensive plan makes basic trip cancellation coverage available that will extend coverage for the cancellation of a trip for specific unforeseen, covered reasons. Commonly, travel insurance plans, such as the Nationwide Essential plan, will cover reasons such as:

    The unexpected death, illness, or injury of you and/or a traveling companion that deems you unfit to travel, by order of a licensed physician;
    The hospitalization or death of a non-traveling family member;
    Weather or common carrier related issues that causes your common carrier to cease operations for 24 hours;
    Unforeseen natural disasters at home or the destination; and
    A legal obligation, such as being called for jury duty or to appear as a witness in court. However, we recommend that you review the covered reasons in your certificate since they do vary from plan to plan.

    Travel Delay under the Nationwide Essential plan does reimburse the traveler for your incurred expenses but only after a six hour delay for a
    Hazard which means:
    "a) Any delay of a Common Carrier (including Inclement Weather).
    b) Any delay by a traffic accident en route to a departure, in which You or a Traveling Companion is not directly involved.
    c) Any delay due to lost or stolen passports, travel documents or money, quarantine, hijacking, unannounced Strike,
    natural disaster, civil commotion or riot.
    d) A closed roadway causing cessation of travel to the destination of the Covered Trip (substantiated by the department of transportation, state police, etc.)"

    InsureMyTrip encourages all customers to the certificate which is attached to each quote prior to purchasing.

I did not have a claim so I really don't know how good this insurance really was.

Really can’t tell how satisfied you are with the coverage until it is necessary to file a claim and there is no difficulty collecting the coverages you think you purchased.
