Today we are going to take a bit of a turn from my usual writings about fun and exciting things in the world of travel to something more serious. I would like to take some time to talk with you about the importance of vacation insurance, also known as travel protection.
Usually, a vacation package consists of at least two components. These could be a hotel and park tickets, or flights, hotel, rental car and excursions. Travel protection plans are a line item that can be added on to your vacation package for an additional fee. Sometimes the insurance plan is offered through a supplier (like Walt Disney Travel Company) and other times insurance can be purchased separately through a third party.
I have found in my years as a travel professional that, sadly, most vacationers give very little, if any, thought to travel protection plans. However, I would like you to reconsider the importance of protecting your vacation investment. I am bringing this topic to light because my family recently had an incident that benefited from vacation insurance. When issues hit close to home is when people speak up!
I absolutely love sailing with Disney Cruise Line! Their service is unbeatable, their entertainment is matchless and their food is outstanding. But, let’s face it, their prices are right in line with their superior cruising experiences.
Disney Cruise Line offers specialty dining options for adults at Palo (on all 4 ships) and Remy (Fantasy and Dream). Like most families, we work hard to save up for a Disney Cruise vacation and we try to save where we can. So, the idea of spending more money on “an adult fine dining experience” seemed a bit extravagant. It felt like something we could pass up, no need to spend more money on food when our meals are already covered, and we love the dining rooms aboard all of the Disney Cruise ships.
After constantly hearing about Palo, doing my own research and wanting to be the best travel professional I can be by giving my clients first-hand knowledge, I decided to work this experience into our schedule and budget during our cruise on Disney Magic. I will tell you right now, I was not disappointed by my choice and I will certainly plan for a Palo dining experience on every Disney Cruise vacation from now on!
