Marine Crew Individual Cruiseline Vacation Health Insurance

It's vacation time and as a Captain, Officer or Crew Member who has been away from home for many months, all you can think about is sleeping in your own bed, eating your favorite foods and spending time with loved ones. Before you sign off on your well-deserved break, it is important to keep your health in mind and purchase a Vacation Health Insurance policy to cover you wherever you wish to go.

Vacation health insurance is one of the smartest uses of your money and offers protection against costs arising from an accident or illness, both at home or wherever your travels take you.
