We didn’t need to file a claim, which is great ((who wants problems with a vacation?), but comforting to know it was there if I needed it.

We fortunately did not need to file a claim, but in anticipation of the trip and while we traveled we were able to relax and enjoy our trip knowing we were covered for trip cancellation, interruption and medical.

Thank you!

Seemed to give us the coverage needed. Peace of mind knowing we had insurance for unexpected incidents.

My plane was delayed by weather and I missed a part of my tour in Nashville. I was disappointed that the insurance did not cover the tour that I missed that was not my fault.

It's great knowing you are covered in any event, and it will cost you less and cover you more than what the cruise company offers. A win-win in my opinion.

This isn't a review, but an elaboration on the first question.

I guess it's hard to say if the travel insurance I purchased provided "good coverage" since I (happily) didn't need to use it. But it seemed adequate for my needs when I read about it before purchasing it. And it gave me peace of mind to have it, so that makes it "good" to me. :-)
