With a Caribbean cruise coming up in December, and all the uncertainty about the repair of ports, I am reminded that for me, a cruise is all about being on a ship at sea. I won't be at all disappointed if the ports are changed, or if we just sail around for 12 days.
Re travel insurance, we did get it for our first few cruises. Then I realized that for every five cruises, we had spent enough on insurance for a whole cruise, so we stopped. We have not bought it (or wished for it) since.
Not sure where you were getting insurance but I've never had it cost 20% of my cruise. Usually it is between 5-10%. Having had to use it for a death in the family the day before a cruise, plus having many other times when we almost had to use it, that 5-10% is worth the peace of mind to us.
