On Friday, December 20, 2019, two Carnival Cruise Line ships collided in Cozumel, Mexico, causing damage. With several travelers concerned about their current and upcoming planned travel with this cruise line, Travel Insured clarifies what exactly could be covered with its travel protection plans.
What if my cruise ship is delayed?
This incident may be covered by the Travel Delay and Missed Connection benefits if there is a delay of a Common Carrier. (The delay must be certified by the Common Carrier and you must be delayed for the required time period specified in you plan. For Missed Connection, the delay must cause you to miss a cruise or tour departure.)
What if there is a change in my itinerary?
The Itinerary Change benefit may provide coverage if this incident leads to the travel supplier making a change to your itinerary.
Will I have coverage if my trip needs to be cancelled or interrupted?
Trip cancellation or trip interruption coverage could be applied if a cancellation of your trip is due to your arrival at your destination being delayed, and this ultimately causes you to lose 50% or more of the trip duration. In order for coverage to apply, the reason for the delay must be due to one of the reasons under the Missed Connection Benefit.
Please refer to your actual plan document for the specific terms and conditions of the specific plan purchased as eligibility for coverage varies based upon the specific plan terms, conditions and limitations, and may vary by state or may not be available in all states. Travel Insured recommends travelers purchase proper travel protection plans in case of unforeseen circumstances and to know where to go and where not to go during their travels.
