Insurance Cover and pre existing conditions


Recommended Posts

I understand that all Cruise lines now require you to take your travel insurance documentation and it is scrutinised at embarkation. I have a number of pre existing medical conditions which are sometimes accepted and sometimes excluded. This year 3 related conditions were excluded because of an increase in the number of medications prescribed. The conditions are stable and do not normally cause a problem .

 

My question is that with this more rigorous scrutiny of documentation might these excluded conditions result in a refusal to board ( I am not inclined to take out extra insurance cover as these conditions are not a problem and are unlikely to be). Anyone encountered this problem ?. I have a Cruise booked for May and am hoping not to have to cancel.

Where were you told about this requirement?  Have not heard of this before and it makes no sense.

The original poster is from the UK.  I believe if you are taking a British Isles cruise, many if not all lines require you to have travel insurance that meets minimum medical/evacuation requirements. This sounds like the reason for his question.
