  Like any holiday, there are a number of things that might – occasionally – go wrong on a cruise.
Often the problems that crop up may be outside your control, and cruise travel insurance will offer you
some protection, but it is no substitute for common sense and basic precaution.

 Excursions on shore when the boat is in port are central to the cruise experience. More often than
you’d expect though, holiday makers arrive late back from their time on land to find their boat already
pulling out to sea. The problem is how to get them safely aboard without significantly delaying the
cruise and accruing significant costs. Cruise Travel insurance policies will often cover ‘disaster
recovery’ and ‘missed departure’, but you could find the extra costs of being tardy may come from your
own pocket.

 Sometimes, the boat will return to the dock if it has only moved a short way off, but this is at the
discretion of the captain, the liner company and the harbour. More often, if the liner is still within sight
of stranded passengers on the pier, it may slow or stop and then send back a pilot boat or a launch to
collect them. The aim then is to get the latecomers alongside and up the side of the liner without
waiting too long, and without spilling passengers into the sea. In this situation, you want to avoid
dipping into your cruise travel insurance to pay for injuries from a failed boarding attempt.

Don’t Be Left Hanging

 In an unplanned boat-to-boat transfer of this kind you may be urged to jump from one boat to the
other, or it may require a tentative ascent up a swinging rope ladder. It should be noted that often the
assisting pilot/tug/launch boat operator will charge a fee for the service, and indeed cruise operators
may choose to penalize for the delay, which likely won’t be covered by cruise insurance. What it will
certainly mean is the unwanted attentions of your fellow passengers. In less favourable sea conditions
they may cheer your successful arrival on board, but if you’ve caused a significant delay you may have
to tolerate jeers such as ‘buy a watch’ or ‘swim for it!’

 Worse still is when you miss the boat by such a margin that it is far out of reach. When this happens
your only recourse is to arrange your own transport to rejoin the cruise at the next port of call. This
could be costly, so it is a good idea to check if your cruise travel insurance covers you for such
misadventures, and a better idea to be punctual.

Getting on Board

 But there are occasions when late boarders are not welcome on the boat at all. A few days ago (in
April 2009) the Italian Cruise liner MSC Melody had to repel repeated raiding attempts by armed
Somali pirates who tried to climb aboard from a motor launch. One passenger was central to this action
as he threw his deckchair at the boarders. In some reports he was hailed as a hero; other reports say
the captain’s order to go below deck went unheeded, exposing passengers to danger. Although
medical costs are covered by cruise insurance cover, a little sensible precaution might help prevent
taking bullet wounds home as souvenirs.

                                       Is a Marine Wrap Worth it For Your Boat?
                                                    By Hal Lewis

If you are thinking about changing the look of your boat then you may want to consider getting a
marine wrap. You can have the best looking boat out on the water with a new colorful marine wrap.
You can choose from many designs to suit your taste. Most boats are pretty close to looking the same
with maybe having different colors. You want your boat to stick out and look better than all the rest. A
marine wrap can give your boat style and show off your personality at the same time. Marine wraps are
easy to apply over almost any size boat. There is no painting or scraping and you boat needs very little
prepping before-hand. Boat wraps are less costly than what you would pay to have your boat
airbrushed. Prior to marine wraps many people airbrushed their boats when they wanted to give them
a new look. Having your boat airbrushed can be time consuming because of all the prep work that will
need to be done and it can also be quite costly. If you decide to have your boat airbrushed plan on it to
a time consuming experience.

 When it comes to marine wraps you don’t have a long wait before your boat is back in the water. It will
take about half the time that an airbrush job would take and you can add outstanding results to the
appearance of your boat. Boat wraps are a very easy fix in decorating a plain common looking boat
and turning it into the most eye catching boat out on the water. They are easy to install on the hull of
your boat and will only take about a day to apply. Your boat will be ready to go into the water the next
day. If you apply a marine wrap on your boat and then decide you would like to change it later for any
reason, they are easy to remove without leaving any sign of damage on your boat.

 The marine wrap you choose should show off your personality and should be to your particular liking.
You can get any type and design of marine wrap to add color and style to your boat. After a marine
wrap is applied to the hull of your boat it is worry free. The people that will put your marine wrap on are
professionals and will make sure the marine wrap is perfect on your boat. Marine wrap images are
printed out before installing them on your boat. This way if something is not to your liking you can have
it changed before it is applied on to your boat. You will love your boat after you have a marine wrap put
on it. They can show off your boat and make it one of a kind. Marine wraps are an easy care free way
to add art on to your boat. They can make your boat look more expensive and draw attention wherever
your go. If you are thinking on doing something different to your boat a marine wrap may be for you.
