  1. Global Entry is a good option to have if you travel a lot. It is great for flying back from International flights into the US.

We were supposed to board in the morning, however, at 2:00 am I suffered a heart attack. This was shortly after Hurricane Ike had flooded the local hospital so ambulance took me back to the mainland. The insurance covered the cost of the cruise, ambulance ride, hotel stay after hospital release (doctor said to stay in area a few days), meals, and covered what our medical did not. La
  7. We have had this happen when the expiration date falls too close to the actual sailing date. Often we book cruises two years out. If cruise should extend beyond the expiration date (eg: due to hurricane?) they want to make sure your card will be accepted for your charges. Hope this helps.
