Am I covered if my cruise ship returns early?


Last Updated:

If your cruise ship returns early, you may be covered by the Trip Interruption benefit.

More Detail

Many travel insurance policies with Trip Interruption will cover you if your cruise ship returns early due to inclement weather or a mechanical breakdown.

In this case, the cruise line will most likely give you some credit for reimbursement. If they do not, or if that credit does not cover the portion of your trip that you’re missing, you can file a claim with your travel insurance provider for the difference.
