Three good rules for cruising emerge here:1) Travel Insured 2) Have the number of the US Consulate/Embassy with You when You go ashore in a foreign country and 3) Have the number of the cruiseline's port agent handy (Usually listed in your daily shipboard bulletin). Let us all learn from this prime example....insurance, by itself, is not enough!!!
Better and more active cruiseline assistance during any medical crises for needed and necessary Humanitarian Aid would also go a loooong way here. Concern for passengers injuries should not cease once your ship pulls out of port!! Age is not an issue here...lack of Humanitarian Assitance is!!! Shame on Azamara!!!!
