Am I covered if my cruise line changes the itinerary?

 

Last Updated:

Travel insurance purchased outside of your cruise line does not provide coverage in the event the cruise line changes your itinerary.

More Detail

The Trip Cancellation benefit does not cover cancellation due to an itinerary change by the cruise line. In most cases, the cruise line will work with you for some form of reimbursement if you are unable to make your trip because of their changes to your itinerary.

Some policies, however, may cover airline change fees if you need to reschedule your flights to make the rescheduled cruise.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact our licensed travel insurance experts. Squaremouth’s award-winning customer service team is available from 8am to 10pm ET, seven days a week, by chat and by phone at 800-240-0369.
