Cruising Alaska or the Caribbean, maybe $250,000.  Anywhere else, no less than $500,000.


Just remember to try to have a couple of high limit credit cards with you. 1) Many medical providers will want payment at time of service, in some cases, before you get to go past the waiting room.  And they will not bill your insurance, that's your job.  2) Travel insurance is generally indemnity insurance, meaning you pay first and claim with them when you get home, so try to get the doctors statement or your file before you go out the door :classic_mellow:
