Sail the seas with peace of mind knowing you are covered with support and assistance should you need it.

Ensure you are covered for general medical expenses overseas, existing medical conditions, hospitalisation and medical evacuations. We strongly recommend that you purchase appropriate international travel insurance for your Carnival cruise.

Australian Domestic Cruises

Please note, International travel insurance is recommended on Australian coastal cruises, as your cruise is outside the scope of Australian Medicare.

Special note for New Caledonia

The immigration authorities of New Caledonia have advised us that guests, who do not hold international travel insurance that covers medical costs, repatriation and other expenses, may be refused entry into New Caledonia. We strongly recommend that you purchase the appropriate international travel insurance for your Carnival cruise.

Be aware when organising your insurance that uninsured travellers (or their families) are held personally liable for cancellation, medical and associated costs incurred at any time whether before the cruise, on board or overseas.

Hospitalisation costs on board or outside of the country and medical evacuation costs are very expensive and are not covered by Medicare or private health insurance. Daily hospital bills can cost as much as AUD 5,000 per day. All consultations, treatments and medications are charged at private rates.

If you plan on participating in sports such as scuba diving or parasailing, ensure your policy covers these activities.
