Under the terms of the arrangement, Allianz will offer travel insurance to cruise guests on the Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony ships.
Protection will include coverage for unexpected trip cancellations, delays and interruptions, baggage loss, damage or delay, as well as coverage for medical emergencies while cruising.
Guests who purchase insurance under the arrangement will also have access to Allianz’s SmartBenefits no-receipt payments, and its TravelSmart mobile app.
“Crystal guests who opt in for travel protection can enjoy their trip knowing that we’re here 24/7/365 to help navigate most travel-related mishaps anywhere in the world to make every voyage even more enjoyable,” said Tom Trotta, Vice President of Sales at Allianz Partners USA.
“Along with an unparalleled level of service and experiences, we are proud to offer our guests travel insurance and assistance that offers trip protection from booking to return,” added Crystal Cruises President Jack Anderson. “Crystal guests opting to protect their trip can now enjoy their cruise even more, knowing they are protected from certain unexpected events.”
Allianz Group also merged its subsidiaries, Allianz Global Benefits and Allianz Partners in February.
