I purchased the Nationwide Essential plan for a Royal Caribbean cruise to the Caribbean at a reasonable price instead of the overpriced "Royal Caribbean CruiseCare". I was very happy that I chose this plan. I had to visit the ship doctor's office on the second day of the trip for an antibiotic. The total cost was ~$250. The claim process when I returned home was easy and they reimbursed me the full amount of the medical costs incurred onboard the cruise.

We did not have to use this insurance but it was comforting to know that we had it just in case. We booked our trip a year in advance and much can happen in a year that could interfere with the trip. Fortunately, that didn't happen.

Thankfully, I didn't have to file a claim. But we were confident the policy was there if needed. We are very happy using Insuremytrip and recommend it often.

We did not have to use the plan during our cruises but one CANNOT risk not having insurance, especially when in other countries. There was a significant price increase from last year for the same plan so guess so many insurance payouts in relation to all the past catastrophic weather events had an effect. This was the best plan for my money that covered the basic elements for my trip. Like all types insurance you are the decision maker, payee and risk taker.
