For your convenience, we now offer you a competitive option for purchasing emergency medical and evacuation/repatriation insurance before you embark the Sea Spirit for your expedition cruise into the Arctic or Antarctic regions.
Traveling to the Arctic or Antarctic is a great adventure, but sometimes unexpected illness or injury during the trip itself may change your plans and require medical evacuation. Emergency medical and evacuation/repatriation insurance covers you in case of such an eventuality.
Note that Poseidon Expeditions requires this type of insurance coverage for all passengers aboard the Sea Spirit, as per our Terms and Conditions: for the Arctic US $150,000 in 2019, increasing to US $200,000 in 2020, and for the Antarctic – US $200,000. For guests traveling with us to the North Pole aboard the 50 Years of Victory, this insurance coverage is included in your cruise price; separate purchase is not required.
Emergency medical and evacuation/repatriation insurance coverage is not the same thing as cancellation insurance. We strongly recommend cancellation insurance, but do not require it.
If you already have a medical insurance or travel policy that includes emergency evacuation and repatriation, you are ready for the occasion and will have the qualified help and financial support should it be required. Enjoy your cruise to the polar regions, but do make sure you have the required insurance in place beforehand!
Please note that this emergency medical and evacuation/repatriation insurance can be purchased no sooner than six months before the cruise departure date.
