can one buy cruise insurance if sharing one room with three others?
My niece is taking a cruise with her friends from college. There are 4 girls
sharing one room on the cruse. Each person is paying for 1/4 of the fare,
obviously. The 6-day cruise leaves from FL, makes a few stops in Mexico,
and returns to the same port in FL.
She said she saw something about cruise insurance on Carnival's website.
I believe it covers the usual delays, accidents, illnesses, etc... onboard
and or at ports-of-call. Her own personal health insurance is through
her college, so it may be lacking.
I haven't had a chance to look at it yet.... but as someone who's sharing
1/4 of the room, can she buy the cruise insurance on her own. (if the
other three girls don't want to buy it)
what does carnivals web site say re cost? it might be worth your time to read it.....
did they get the air from carnival?, if so, what to most is the biggest risk is covered.....missing the boat, which w/cruise air, they will get you to the next port.....however, be sure to check it out....
don....i'm practicing to be a grouchy old man, and getting good at it....
decided to get the info directly, so I called Carnival. After speaking to two
agents and one supervisors, they confirmed that that entire cabin has to
buy the insurance. It can't be sold to just my niece if her three friends
dont' want it. (well... she could still technically buy it for herself and
pay for her friends' share at the same time )
There can be many variables in policy price as well as coverage...so check before you buy!
ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY The travel insurance offered by cruise lines is woefully inadequate. Buying an independent policy is the smart way to go and not everyone in the room has to buy it. Don't go anywhere without it!
