Really sad to hear that Hannah.

I hope things work out for you and that you will soon be able to look forward to cruising again.

Choosing suitable cover has become quite an exhausting experience for us over the last couple of weeks. We've finally gone through the bank account, but it will cease in 3 years time when I'm 71. They said quite categorically that existing medical conditions would not be covered, and to ring them up to declare these existing conditions. When I did this, I thought it was just for the record so they could exclude these conditions from future claims. But they slapped on an additional premium - and from their phraseology it looks like the premium is in respect of cover for these conditions - I'm lost, but content that I have finally got something sorted out.

I have got holiday travel insurance from Civil Service Pensioners Alliance (CSPA) as I receive a Civil Service Pension having worked for them for many years. They will insure you at a reasonable cost without having to declare medical conditions, worldwide and includes cruises. My annual fee to join CSPA is just £18 per yr and insurance was just over £172 per annum. There is an upper age limit (think was 85) but once in system age limit doesn't apply. For all info look on Civil Service Pensioners Alliance website if it helps at all. The only critieria is that you are not terminally ill and fit for travelling (not against dr's advice) It really is a minefield, up till now most companies found me uninsureable or were prepared to charge an arm and a leg.

That's interesting Hannah - thanks. I'm a Civil Service pensioner too, but never heard of the CSPA. I'll make a note for the future.
