Following the Covid-19 pandemic, some cruise lines began requiring unvaccinated travelers to purchase a specific amount of medical and medical evacuation travel insurance.
Royal Caribbean requires unvaccinated travelers to have $25,000 in Emergency Medical coverage and $50,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage.
Carnival Cruise Line requires unvaccinated travelers to have $10,000 in Emergency Medical coverage and $20,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage.
Most travel insurance policies on Squaremouth.com meet or exceed these requirements.
Typically, Squaremouth recommends cruisers travel with at least $100,000 in Emergency Medical coverage and $250,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage, due to the expensive nature of medical care aboard a cruise ship, and the potential cost of a medical evacuation from a remote destination.
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.
