I think you'd be best off consulting an insurance broker. Have a look on www.biba.org.uk.

See my answer to the previous question on this board. which deals with medical ins difficulties however i think you are finding it difficult to get cover for if you should have to cancel your cruise? Have you tried the insurance recommended by Cunards Parent company? Otherwise, I too would go to a broker.

My mum is aged 87 with no existing medical conditions and has found Virgin Travel insurance the cheapest by a long way. I don't know whether they would insure you both on a long world cruise but it may worth contacting them.

Try Insure and Go on internet. Very good coverage.

We used Direct Line for a cruise this yer for my Mother who is 80, arthritic and with a history of stomache problems. They insure up to 85 for all normal cruise activities - we paid £50 for 10 days in June.

Hi - just reading through the questions regarding insurance to cover a world cruise. I am having exactly the same problem as yourself and I am wondering if you managed to find a company who would cover you for the full cost of your cruise if you had needed to cancel it and also for the number of days you would be away. If so, I was wondering if you would kindly let me know the name and address of the insurance company. I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
