On a recent cruise we had friends who spent $5000. but did not get insurance.
Tried to explain to them that anything could happen and it is a good thing to have.
Could not get that through to them.
We hate to spent the $500+ for insurance but we do
We are late 50's and you just never know.
On our cruise we had a lady fall during some rough seas ..they had to take her to hospital in Cartegena ...she broke her leg but it was a small fracture and they allowed her to continue the cruise otherwise she would have to fly home to the U.K.
