Why Do I Need Cruise Holiday Insurance?

Anyone who has ever travelled outside of the country will know the value of travel insurance. Even if you have never needed to make a claim, you only have to consider the possibilities or read the news to realise that travel insurance can provide essential financial protection should the worst happen. And if it doesn't, you will still benefit from peace of mind.
If you're planning a cruise holiday, you will need to arrange travel insurance just like any other trip - but it's well worth opting for a specific cruise holiday policy as there are additional eventualities you will need to plan for.
For instance, with a cruise you will be travelling to numerous destinations, so you'll need to ensure every location - plus any possible diversions - are written into your policy. Consider what you could be doing on-shore - such as day trips, safaris, hot air balloon rides and sporting activities. And then think about the onboard entertainment such as rock climbing, ice skating and using the onboard fitness centres.

Cruise insurance policies usually cover plenty of different eventualities with special additions for on and off-board activities, and all the different destinations you'll visit too. For each of these scenarios, good cruise cover should include key features like medical expenses, personal liability, emergency assistance and holiday cancellation cover, among others.

Your best bet is to get advice from your tour operator before you go. If you book through a tour operator like Thomas Cook, they can offer advice and help you to book the right level of cover for your trip. Take a look at the Thomas Cook Cruise Insurance details on their website to find out more, or speak to a member of the team for further advice.

Remember that even if your cruise policy costs a little more than standard holiday cover, it's a small price to pay for financial protection and that all-important peace of mind.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
