If you want to travel the Caribbean, you’re going to have to find a way to do it.
That’s why the US Department of Transportation is launching an international cruise insurance policy.
The policy is available through travel insurance companies for both US-bound and international cruise ships.
This means you can insure yourself against a cruise ship collision and have it paid for by your insurer, instead of just the US government.
This policy, called B.O.R.T., is only available to American passengers.
You have to be at least 26 years old to qualify for the policy.
If you’re a US citizen and plan on travelling to the Caribbean on a cruise, you can use the US Government Travel Insurance program.
If your cruise ship does not carry US passengers, you should check out the US Coast Guard Travel Insurance.
This program offers similar coverage to the US B.o.r.t. insurance.

This is not the first time the US has launched insurance coverage for cruise ships in the Caribbean.
The US government launched a similar cruise insurance program in 2018 for private charter ships.
Since that time, the US and Caribbean cruise operators have signed a deal to share cruise ship safety information.
