The Most Important Thing You'll Need if Your Cruise Goes Bad - Next to a Life Vest


Going on a cruise can be a wonderfully relaxing and fun vacation. Fun activities, beautiful sunsets, the open sea, wind-whipped waves, seasickness, possible food poisoning from the buffet ... wait.

So there are things that can go wrong. Maybe you or your companion get sick and need to leave early. Maybe something comes up that prevents you from going on your cruise at all. But what happens to all of the money you invested in your trip?

Unless you have travel insurance, you could lose it. Even if you cancel before the trip begins. 

Considering the high cost of most cruises, travel insurance is a must. USI Affinity Travel Isurance Services cruise insurance has several policies that fit your needs. Some of the benefits offered are:

  • Emergency Medical Expense
  • Emergency Medical Evacuation
  • Repatriation of Remains
  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment
  • 24-Hour Worldwide Assistance


The Travel Insurance Select policy covers trip cancellation if you get sick, another event comes up, or you just change your mind.

There's even an option for frequent travelers. Voyager Annual Insurance offers coverage year round, for trips up to 90 days at a time. Just sign up once a year and you're covered.

I agree with you Christian Louboutin. Insurance is a necessity for every travelers. I don't understand why most people think of insurance as a burden? It is indeed an additional expense for the budget of the family but looking into its purpose and the assurance that it may give to you I think it is worth it and if ever nothing will happen then praise God. There are other ways to lessen expenses like looking into cheaper hotels or limiting unnecessary expenses that will do.

Cruise Deals For 2011

I have started to book travel insurance even for one or two day holidays (anything that requires a flight or other transport). Because you never know what is going to come up and you don't want to pay for a cruise that you cannot get to or take.
