Insurance an Option for Cruisers in Light of Bertha

­­Bermuda looks to be clear from Tropical Storm Bertha, which has weakened and moved away from the island, according to media outlet reports. The storm, however, forced cruise lines to skip or postpone some scheduled Bermuda calls earlier in the week, particularly Royal Caribbean, Princess and NCL.

If weather threatens a cruise, it's advisable to recommend clients purchase some type of insurance. One company, Travel Insured International, offers a "Missed Port of Call" benefit, which specifically addresses cruise disruptions– such as when a cruise ship is forced to drop a port of call.

For instance, if your clients purchase a shore excursion at a particular port that is skipped, Travel Insured's protection benefit will reimburse them up to $750. This sort of insurance gives agents confidence and clients peace of mind. In addition, Trip Delay coverage of up to $200 per day is included.
