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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
