Cruise travel insurance you can trust

When it comes to seeing the world, it doesn't get much better than a cruise. Whether it's a short, no-fly Mediterranean cruise, a 30 day world cruise or something slightly different, it's plain sailing to get Cruise cover with World First. You can now add Cruise cover (for a small additional premium) to any of our Single or Annual multi-trip travel insurance policies when you book online or by phone.

And if something goes wrong? Don't worry. When you add a Cruise extension to any of our travel insurance policies you'll still be able to enjoy all the usual benefits – should you need them – as well as the reassurance that we'll look after you if your cruise isn't all you hoped it would be.

Extra benefits for your cruise

In addition to covering the cost of your cruise in case you have to cancel up to £5,000 on our Superior policies, we'll also increase your cancellation cover to the value of your cruise, to a maximum of £10,000 per person. We'll also cover you for up to £500 if you miss your departure due to a breakdown or delays, for up to £750 if your ship misses a port due to timetable restrictions or bad weather, and for up to £500 if you are confined to your cabin due to illness.

We also cover the loss of personal possessions, cash and valuables and if you are travelling with a medical condition we can cover that too. We cover thousands, for travellers aged up to 100. And our prices? Well, they're a drop in the ocean.

Good medical cover. Your cruise line will insist on it.

Most cruise lines insist that their passengers have appropriate travel insurance for their medical conditions, including cover for medical expenses and repatriation. After all, getting seriously ill at sea without proper travel insurance cover can be a very expensive business. With World First you get all the cover you need and more. As with all our policies you'll also have access to a 24/7 emergency helpline no matter where you are in the world and will be covered for the loss of any medication you need to take regularly.

If you are thinking of getting hitched by the captain whilst on board, we can also cover that too, with cover for your rings, gifts, photographs and even your party's wedding attire.
