Has anyone used Royal Caribbean insurance and if so, was this value for money?

Hi, the only advice i can give is, from my daughter who works for a travel agents she has told us that it gives you more cover for yor valuables/clothes/suitcases etc as there is no restricted allowance for the amount of luggage that cruisers can take, they enevitably take more. You also get cover if you are confined to your cabin through illness;if shore excursions are missed etc. I hope this has been of help to you,it is well worth discussing it with Insurance people/or travel agent.

Ascertain the amount of cover for e.g cancellation and loss of baggage on your existing policy. If you feel it is not sufficient to cover cruise fares and type/amount of clothes you will take on a cruise, check if you can increase the amount of cover under those sections of your policy. We have an annual policy on which we have done that and the additional premium works out at considerably less than the cost of an individual cruise lines policy for each cruise.

This is very much a personal preference. We have had a general annual insurance, albeit worldwide, and take three or four cruises a year plus other breaks and have found that we are reasonably covered for all our needs. The extra insurance offered with "cruise insurance" is, as far as we are concerned, sort of a belt and braces measure and we have, as I said, felt adequately covered. If you intend to go ice skating or surfing then I would, and I am not joking, be more inclined to get Winter Sports cover or Extreme Sports cover as an accident whilst pursuing these activities is often not covered whereas over-eating is. Hope that is of some help. ....Neil.

I suppose there is no quick answer to that and cruise lines vary in what they charge and also for how long you will be off the ship.The thing about excursions is that if you book them using the ship then if there are any delays then the ship will hold on for you and that is pretty much true but there is also another company we use out there that give you a guarantee to get you back to the ship in time and not everybody knows about them or has even looked at them, this is a shame as some of th...

My 6* Luxury Silverseas Experience

By Kerry James

Last week I was lucky to have been chosen to fly to Dubai for 2 nights and then to sample 6* luxury on board the Silverseas Silver Spirit for 3 nights. Our flights from Edinburgh were with Turkish Airlines and we were very lucky to have half of us upgraded to Business Class on the way out, and the other half on the way back.We were late leaving Heathrow which meant we technically should have missed our connection but luckily the flight was held and after a mad dash to the plane (typically the...
