    Make sure you're covered for helivac and repatriation, as well as the usual medical expenses.

    Most cruise insurers offers extra cover, for example for being confined to cabin due to illness, cancelling excursions due to illness, change of ports etc. We never bother, but you may wish to.

    As above make sure you have cruise cover as god forbid you have to be airlifted of the boat by helecopter when you recover you will have to sell a kidney/your house and one of your grandchildren to pay the bill,only kidding but the bill will be very high without the correct insurance
