As of today Norwegian Cruise Lines has implemented a new plan to protect cruisers in case one of their worst fears was to come true, the loss of your job. The new plan, called the Booksafe travel protection plan will provide a full reimbursement to passengers who need to cancel a cruise due to the loss of a job.
The new policy works just like a travel insurance policy. Passengers make a payment based on the cost of your cruise; coverage starts at the low price of $29, a small price to pay for peace of mind. The new Booksafe plan will cover everything purchased through NCL, including any airfare and accommodations. The only cost that will not be reimbursed is the cost of the actual plan.
Booksafe may be purchased by anyone that has been an active employee in your company for at least one year. The best part is passengers can purchase this plan at anytime before your final payment date, not within two weeks of booking like most travel insurance packages.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the existence of “for any reason” travel insurance. However, note that you will need to purchase travel insurance within a certain timeframe of booking (usually two weeks). Also, note that most plans do not refund 100% of your costs. As I mentioned earlier you can purchase the plan at any time before final payment is due and NCL will reimburse you 100 percent of your costs minus the plan fee. I would ask anyone who is interested in learning more about Booksafe to speak to either the cruise line or a qualified travel professional.
