When the snow piles high and the thermometer drops low, what better way to beat the winter blahs than cruising to a tropic port – or several?
But, when you plan a winter cruise, plan for safety as well as fun. The basic rules for personal safety and security are the same on a cruise ship as they are on dry land: Stay alert and use common sense.
Finally, a cruise can represent a rather sizable upfront investment, so you might want to consider travel insurance. Whether you book online or through a travel agent, you should be able to add insurance coverage to your purchase. Additionally, some credit cards offer travel interruption, trip cancellation and/or lost luggage benefits. Check with your card provider on the benefits available to you.
Follow our tips to help burglar-proof your home for greater peace of mind while you’re away. Also, remember that your Safeco homeowners policy protects personal belongings whether you leave them home or take them with you. Double check your coverage before you go, so your greatest worries during the cruise are sunburn and buffet-induced indigestion.
