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

We unfortunately were not able to go on our cruise due to a health concern of mine. We were able to sell our cabin to another traveler for $400 less than what we paid. ☹️

    Thank you for letting us know that you were unable to go on the cruise. We hope that you will soon recover and look forward to planning future trips.

With aging parents, purchasing trip insurance gives us a bit of peace of mind. We don't leave home for trips without it.

The protection was appropriate. Not having to use the insurance is the best experience

We did not purchase a travel insurance policy until AFTER I had a heart attack. However, it made us realize there were a whole lot of things that could still happen that could make us lose our trip and our money, so we bought the policy understanding there were certain limitations. Nine days before we were to sail on Nov 25, my husband got a jury summons for Nov 26. We called to see about his getting out of jury duty and was told he probably could, but he would have to come in on the 26th to get out or face contempt charges. We had no choice but to cancel our cruise 5 days before sailing. There was absolutely no problem or questions. We sent in the documentation requested and before we would have been back home from the cruise, we received our checks in the mail. Of course we will book again after the holidays and we will take insurance out when we book the cruise so everything will be covered should we have to cancel or should we have trouble while at sea and need to be air lifted home. Thank you for such speedy, easy resolution to our problem. (Yes, my husband was excused--a day too late for us to sail.)
Milton R. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
