Below is a link to a great article by Dori Saltzman of Travel Market Report that summarizes the major cruise lines’ cancellation policies. A recent change by Carnival Cruise Line is the latest in a gradual move by cruise lines to impose stiffer penalties for cancelled cruise bookings.
I will not re-hash or copy the article in this post, but merely point out how important it is to protect your vacation investment against unforseen circumstances that could arise either before or during your trip. At Island Time Travel, we never travel without insurance and stress with our clients the importance of travel insurance to protect you not only for trip cancellation and interruption, but also:
- travel delay
- medical expenses and 24/7 emergency assistance
- emergency medical and non-medical evacuation
- lost or delayed baggage
- hurricane cancellation protection
Our preferred suppliers are Travel Guard, TravelSafe, and Allianz Travel Insurance (formerly Access America).
