I have bought the insurance through Princess cruises and had to use it. They were awesome. The last one I bought was the company Vacationtogo offers. I can’t speak to who is the best just my experience. Thankfully I have only had to use it once. Knock on some wood!

Insurance is terribly subjective. Usually, but not always, you can get better, more comprehensive coverage for the same price or less through a third-party travel insurance provider. Your travel agent should be able to help you with this. That way you can cover everything, including anything you purchased elsewhere (flights, pre- or post- hotels, transfers, shore excursions) rather than just the cruise. That said, if you need “cancel for any reason” insurance, the cruise line may be a better choice resulting in a partial credit for a future cruse. Travel insurance is important, so you need to evaluate your options.

One should never leave home without it for you never know what can happen. Be safe, purchase insurance.

Ive also purchased it and had to use it. The amount it saved me is enough to pay for it for 8 cruises. Well worth the additional upfront cost

We go through our home owner/auto insurance company, we did need it once and they came through like champs.

We usually use Allianz

Thank you, will look into

I have used CSA and we had no problem when we had to file a claim. The advantage of a 3rd party insurance is you can get one policy to cover your Cruise, your air and your hotel. A lot of time the Cruise line insurance will only cover what the cruise line sells you. I tend to book everything myself to get the hotel and flights I want so the one policy covering all of it is easier if you have to file a claim then 2 or 3 policies.
