Global Impact: THE TELEGRAPH Offers Health Guidelines When Traveling by Cruise-Ship

COMMENT: I have included for the benefit of our readers an excellent travel piece issued by THE TELEGRAPH concerning unforeseen medical costs that cruisers can face if they don't prepare well for medical emergencies.

As I recommend to all travelers who visit developing nations, whether they are aboard a cruise-ship or not, it is essential that you subscribe to international medical treatment and medical evacuation insurance before leaving home.

If you fail to protect yourself with such insurance, which runs on an average of US$8-10 per day, you could have to pay tens of thousands of dollars to be medically evacuated from a cruise-ship or substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses for forgetting your hypertension medication once ship-board.

Please review the below link and potentially save yourself lots of money.
