PART B. MEDICAL PROTECTION
Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation of Remains
The Insurer will pay benefits for Covered Expenses, up to $25,000, if an Injury or Sickness commencing during the course of the Cruise results in Your necessary Emergency Evacuation.

The Insurer will also pay Repatriation of Remains benefits for Transportation, to return Your body to Your point of origin in the event of Your death during Your cruise.
Emergency Evacuation means:
a) Your medical condition warrants immediate transport from the place where You are injured or sick to the nearest hospital where appropriate medical treatment can be obtained; and/or

In no event will all benefits paid under Emergency Evacuation and Repatriation or Remains exceed $25,000.
Accident & Sickness Medical Expense
The Insurer will pay benefits, up to $10,000, if You incur necessary Covered Medical Expenses as a result of an Injury, or up to $10,000 if You incur necessary Covered Medical Expenses as a result of Sickness.
