If you are planning a cruise, then there are some advantages to purchasing a Travel Insurace policy before you leave. Some of the extra benefits are Cabin Confinment, if you are taken ill on board. If you have the good fortune to be cruising the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, or even a Round the World cruise, you should make sure that you have the correct Travel Insurance policy in place. A Standard Travel Insurance policy may not provide sufficient cover for your cruise.
