    I Have Cruised Other Cruise Lines On Short 3 And 4 Day Cruises In The Past And Have Never Purchased Travel Insurance. This Time We Are About To Book 7 Day Western Carribean For Oct 08 We Want A Family Stateroom And Are Not Sure About Insurance From Disney Or Another Agency On The Web. Would Appreciate Advice. Thanks!

    I find Disney's Insurance overpriced. We always do buy insurance, but from ************.com...

    Price it out online.

    As a rule of thumb, I would never buy insurance from the company selling the trip. I know DCL's financials are just fine, but you never know. IF the company were to go belly up, you would be stuck with no recourse. We did not elect to get insurance on our upcoming trip, but had we, we would have gone with an outside provider.

    DCL is not the insurance carrier for their insurance. The policies that they sell are actually through an insurance company (the name escapes me right now). We usually go through ************.com and the prices are better for the same or better coverage. If you have any medical issues, and need to have "pre-existing condition" coverage, make sure you purchase your insurance right after you book your trip (I think most companies allow you 7 - 14 days).

    I believe AccessAmerica is actually the insurance company who handles DCL's insurance.

    I am losing my mind reading fine print and talking to companies trying to be sure I buy the right policy.
    I will meet family in Orlando for Xmas cruise. They fly in from Canada the night before and I want to insure that any weather problem that so delays their arrival that they miss embarkation will result in a full refund of the cruise cost.
    Has anyone had this happen to them and been fully covered by Disney plan? ...or any other plan?:confused3

    I purchase DCL trip insurance, after an incident on the cruise with my kids needing help.

    Yes - the insurance you buy from DCL is thru Access America. We purchased our insurance thru them on our first cruise in '05 & I saved the brouchure for future reference. I have it out 'cuz I am comparing it to other insurance for our next cruise because we are using a combination of our DVC points and cash. Anyway, it offered the following coverage:

    1) Trip Cancellation & interruption protection - Up to the Trip Cost
    2) Travel Delay - $500 per individual
    3) Baggage Coverage - $3,000 per individual
    4) Baggage Delay - $500 per individual
    5) Emer. Med. Transportation - $30,000 per individual
    6) Emer. Medical / Dental - $10,000 per individual
