Well folks here we are stuck in Miami Hilton awaiting a flight to Atlanta .... just off our 9 day cruise (2 days were spent circling Cuba). 4 sea days in a row was a bit much but we're safe so far and will give a full report as soon as return. For now everything is HUNKY DORY.

Just curious - would travel insurance cover you for post cruise stays because I thought you would only be covered fior the actual days of your cruise. This is something I would love to know about! Also, usually people I know do not cover their air costs - cruise cost only. I know that in this case, airlines are I HOPE honoring past ticket holders, but had it not been a hurrican - would they or would there have been penalties?
This is the insurance we always use, so I just called and asked. Seems IF they have to stay overnight or any time I guess say in a hotel awaiting a flight, they WOULD BE COVERED under TRAVEL DELAY at $150 per person per day. IF the cruiseline does NOT reimburse them for a flight penalty, they would also pay on that with proper documentation/proof of itinerary.
I was just curious so I called to find out. Seems you can call a certain number and get info from claims dept and/or download a claims form to be submitted from online.
Good to know I thought. I assume other travel insurance companies would be similar and hopefully they DID have travel insurance!
This is a case where it would definitely pay to have it!
