I had By Pass Surgery in September of this year and went on a cruise in late October. I likewise had difficulties in getting insurance cover for me. There was either an excessice loading or they would not cover me at all. I eventually got cover from Marks & Spencer Insurance. In additional to the normal insurance cover for my wife and I. They accepted my medical condition at an additional loading of £105. This was put down to it only being 12 weeks since my operation. As I wanted to go on the cruise, I had no alternative but to accept it.

Hi, we had the same problem in sept, but got insurance with saga for my hubby at £105 for the year, which i thought was brilliant, its worldwide but excludes AMERICA.

Have you tried Saga or insure and go, I think both do insurance for existing illnesses but you obviously pay a bit extra on the premium.

Allure of the Seas Charlie Age 6

By Charlene Thackeray

My name is Charlie and I have just been on Allure of the Seas. I have been on 3 other cruises before but this was my favourite. Mummy woke me up really early because we had to get a flight from Edinburgh and then we needed to get on a different plane in London. I watched 4 kids films on the flight. Miami airport was so boring it took us 2 hours to get out. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale for a night and got on the cruise ship the next day. We checked in but had to wait about 30mins before we co...
