Thanks for the link, I took 3 quotes and had a brief live chat. What about the Ins Carnival offers. Is it OK or do all of you that reccommend insurance use outside agencies like CSA and TravelGuard
Years ago, the "rule" was to never purchase insurance from the cruiseline you were sailing with in case they "went under" (financially , not physically sinking).
However, as we all know, I doubt that Carnival will be closing their doors any time soon.
So (while I have never purchased their insurance) I would consider them in the list if I were looking.
CSA seems to be a popular choice. I have not read one horror story about them. But I am no expert by any means.
I don't consider the TG reports to be "horror stories" ... just disappointing decisions. It could well be that all the insurance companies responded the same way.
