Cruising is not meant to be dangerous or scary but it is; especially if you understood what really happens behind the scenes.  Whether you are a first time cruiser or have sailed the seven seas for years, there are things about the cruise industry that you probably don’t know. For as much enjoyment as a cruise provides there is a dark side to cruising that generally goes unreported.  Author and Saturday Evening Post contributor, Elizabeth Becker, joins us to reveal the dangers that passengers often face upon boarding.

As travelers consider the perilous possibilities on a cruise, in the sky or on the road, travel insurance becomes a paramount option.    If you’ve ever questioned the necessity of travel insurance or a medical evacuation plan, many frequently asked questions will be answered from executives at the TravelInsuranceStore.com and MedjetAssist.  You’ll also hear from a traveler who suffered severe injuries in Africa and how his care and rehabilitation was manageed through his travel insurance policy.
