Nationwide Mutual Insurance Choice Cruise
I read that this plan didn't cover missing a cruise if the flight had mechanical difficulties. That's insufficient coverage for me, but otherwise I had good coverage which we didn't use.

    Thank you for your comments. You are correct that Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption under this policy would not have reimbursed you for your prepaid non-refundable travel expense if your trip had been canceled or interrupted due to the mechanical breakdown of a travel provider under the Choice Cruise plan. However, you did have the option to add on Cancel for Any Reason:

    "TRIP CANCELLATION FOR ANY REASON - OPTIONAL UPGRADE
    If You cancel Your Trip for any reason not otherwise covered by this Certificate, the Company will reimburse You for the percentage of the prepaid, forfeited, non-refundable Payments or Deposits You paid for Your Trip shown on the Confirmation of Coverage provided:
    a) Your premium payment is received prior to or on the date Your final deposit/payment for Your Trip is received; and
    b) You insure all prepaid Trip costs that are subject to cancellation penalties or restrictions and also insure prior to or on the date Your final payment for those arrangements the cost of any subsequent arrangements (or any other arrangements not made through Your travel agent) added to Your Trip; and
    c) You cancel Your Trip two (2) days or more before Your Scheduled Departure Date."

    Please also note that you did have some coverage under Trip Delay up to 150 USD daily, 750 USD maximum (secondary coverage).

    "TRIP DELAY
    The Company will reimburse You for Covered Expenses on a one-time basis, up to the Maximum Benefit shown on the Confirmation of Coverage, if You are delayed, while coverage is in effect, en route to or from the Trip for six (6) or more
    hours due to a defined Hazard.

    Covered Expenses:
    (a) Any Additional Expenses incurred;
    (b) A one-way Economy Fare to return You to Your originally scheduled return destination...

    Hazard 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 Trip (substantiated by the department of transportation, state police, etc.)"

    Please feel free to call us at (800) 487-4722 if you have any questions.

I wasn't thinking about medical coverage at all when I purchased this plan, but I broke my arm while on vacation in Ireland. As soon as I returned home, I filed a claim. I expected a lengthy process and requests for more paperwork. Instead, I received a check for all of my expenses within about two and a half weeks.

Only thing I would do different is make sure you book your flights within 10 of purchasing an insurance plan so they are covered read the fine print.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Universal Cruise
Years ago when we traveled, we never purchased trip insurance, and we never regretted not doing so. However, as our parents have gotten older, we have purchased trip insurance for the last several trips with them, and by ourselves, just in case something happened and we were not able to go on the trip or needed to come home earlier than planned. Once again, we were happy to not need the insurance! If we had needed it, though, it would have helped limit the financial loss caused by a late trip cancellation or flight changes.

Thankfully I did not have to use my insurance, so I really have no opinion about how good of a policy this was.It made me feel safer to have it.

Luckily all went well and I didn't need to make a claim, but I was glad to find this option that covered cruise-specific problems such as missed ports in addition to normal travel insurance inclusions.
