If we had traveled 2 days before, we would have had to cancel.. so we are glad our risk management was good and the weather cooperated.

Was interested in trip cancellation/interruption coverage due to elderly relative. Everything else was not as important.

We purchased this insurance "just in case." Happily, we did not need it.

Never needed to use so just rated 3 of 5 on coverage. Price was competitive. NOTE: Be sure you look at the trip coverage provided by your credit card company just by charging expenses! I found out after purchasing this policy that I had about the same amount of coverage FREE from my credit card company just for using my card!

Never had to use it but we had peace of mind having insurance. Both of us are in our sixty. A number of years ago we did have to use it and glad we had it. It paid well.

We take this plan for every vacation due to price and what is provided. Fortunately we haven't had to use it, but it's nice to have insurance just in case.

We had to cancel our cruise due to a serious automobile accident my wife was involved in one month before sailing. I contacted Nationwide and they emailed me the claim forms within minutes. The forms were easy to complete and only needed one doctors diagnosis and their signature. Required forms and claim form were able to be emailed back to the company and full refund for both of us was in our hands in 15 days. All the people I spoke to at Nationwide were friendly and helpful. I would defiantly insure my next cruise with them.
