  • Safe Cruising For Everyone

    Filed Under: Blogging

While cruises are statistically the safest form of vacation travel you can take, there are a few health and safety considerations you should be aware of. Make sure your cruise is happy and healthy with cruise insurance and some consideration of cruise safety.

As soon as you reach your cabin, familiarize yourself with the safety procedures on board and what you need to do in an emergency. Pay attention to the initial safety broadcasts and read the information your ship provides for your own benefit.

Take care of yourself and your belongings on shore excursions. Cruise passengers are sometimes targeted by petty criminals in the ports you visit. Make sure your travel insurance is comprehensive and up-to-date. If you are the victim of crime, report it to the cruise ship crew.

You may fall ill on your cruise, although outbreaks of illness on board are rare. If you fall sick, remain in your cabin until you’ve been given the all-clear by medical staff. Remember that medical care on board cruises isn’t free – you’ll need travel insurance to make sure you don’t get stuck with a large medical bill once you’re on dry land.
