The best component of the policy was that it did NOT have to be used on the trip. ?

I'm lucky I didn't have to use it. I saw quite a few people on the ship with legs and arms bandaged.

I think that pre-existing conditions should be covered period, rather than only being covered if the policy is purchased w/in 10 days of booking a cruise.

We didn’t have to use the plan so I can’t address the claims process. However, benefits and terms were easy to access on the website and the prices were very competitive.

While we did not have the opportunity to use/try the insurance it was a nice 'peace of mind' during the trip knowing it was available.

We were fortunate that our trip went as smoothly as could possibly be expected, and we did not have to utilize the plan we purchased. That said, it gave us peace of mind we wouldn't have had otherwise, which was worth a lot, given our financial (and emotional) investment in the trip we planned.

It is difficult to judge the insurance when you don’t have a claim!! I did like the bon voyage email prior to my trip.
