I have an excellent insurance from nat west and My 88 year old father in law got insurance through the cruise line (P&O)as over 65/70 years it gets more difficult to get insurance for any holiday. If you are an older passenger look at the cruise line insurance carefully they are usually tailored specifically for cruises and are therefore well worth using, at least as a benchmark against other insurances. Then you can go online or ring Saga/Age Concern. P&O use www.insuretocruise.com. With any insurance you should read the cover carefully and increase the insurance where it needs it i.e. jewellery and if you are going to the USA a minimum of £5 million medical expenses is needed. Be aware that you MUST tell any ins. company of any medical condition, past operation and medications to ensure you are covered. If you leave anything out it could invalidate the whole of your insurance so make sure you speak to the insurance company or broker, dont just buy anything on line. Hope this helps.

The Consumers Association (Which) have a report on travel insurnace and it looks as if you can read the main points without being a member. Go to www.which.co.uk and select Money then Insurance. I could tell you which ones they recommend but the policies depend upon what your age is. Another site to try is www.moneysupermarket.com but make sure they cover cruises as some don't. I don't somehow think you will get cover for being left in port though. Just make sure your other half doesn't change the time on your watch! If you have personal possessions on your home insurance this may cover you for your jewels but you would have to check your policy for this.

Does Your Cruise Loyalty Club ...

By Collette Apak

All cruise lines are keen to get customers back on board their ships once they have taken their first cruise. To help this they all have their individual loyalty schemes, most of which were in place many years before the likes of Tesco Clubcard points and the Boots Advantage card. Most loyalty tiers are measured on how many nights you’ve spent on board or the number of cruises taken. The benefits vary hugely between each cruise company. Some of the benefits for repeat customers include ...

By Charlene Thackeray

I have never been to the Norwegian Fjords but we have just booked a little break on the Fred Olsen Balmoral for May. It is just a short 5 night sailing but as Charlie has a half day at school every Friday and then the Monday & Tuesday are inset days we thought we would get away.This will be our first time visiting the Fjords and our first time with Fred Olsen. This will be completely different to our last cruise in December on Allure of the Seas and I dont think Charlie realises how small...
