Has anyone purchased insurance for their trip outside of the cruise company. It seems much cheaper but there are a million out there. Any one had any experience with this?
Thanks

I always get insurance with a private carrier. Cruise line insurance is usually more expensive and covers fewer things. I usually get it with Travel Insured, Travelex, or CSA. Go to insuremytrip.com and you can compare quotes. Medical evacuation coverage is something I look for.

I've never had to file a claim.

I purchase travel insurance for all trips, not just cruises. Like Dave, I start with insuremytrip.com. In addition to medical evacuation, I highly suggest coverage for trip interruption, trip cancellation, and pre-existing conditions.

BTW, welcome to cruise-chat.com!
