Atlas Ocean Voyages has expanded its all-inclusive pricing to include Atlas Assurance, which provides medical, travel, and legal services, in addition to emergency medical evacuation insurance.
“We are delivering greater peace of mind to our guests with the new Atlas Assurance program,” said Alberto Aliberti, president of Atlas Ocean Voyages. “While emergencies rarely occur, it’s comforting to know that our guests are protected with Atlas Assurance if something unexpected should happen and they need help.”
The introduction of Atlas Assurance is part of Atlas’ goal of constant innovation. “Innovation is important to us,” Aliberti said during a press conference at Seatrade Cruise Global in Miami this week. “We seek to innovate piece by piece, small element by small element.”
On the medical side, Atlas Assurance includes emergency evacuation and return home transportation; emergency prescription and eyeglasses replacement; payment guarantee of medical expenses; dispatch of physician or specialist; worldwide hospital and physician referral; return of dependent children; and more.
Atlas Assurance also includes a variety of travel services including lost document assistance; 24-hour emergency travel arrangements; embassy and consular assistance; traveling companion transportation; and more. Guests are even provided worldwide legal and bail bonds assistance.
Atlas Assurance is included for all guests as a part of the line’s “All Inclusive All The Way” philosophy. Cruise fares also include complimentary roundtrip air travel; unlimited premium wine and spirits, international beers and coffees; prepaid gratuities; polar parkas; L’Occitane bath amenities; and more. The fares are fully commissionable to travel advisors, as are any pre-cruise purchases like pre-cruise tours or upgraded bottles of Champagne.
