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 offering greater peace of mind to our customers with the new Atlas Assurance program,” said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages. “Although emergencies rarely happen, it’s comforting to know that our customers are protected by Atlas Assurance should something unexpected 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.”

Medical services
On the medical side, Atlas Assurance includes emergency evacuation and return home transportation; emergency prescription and eyeglass replacement; guarantee of payment of medical expenses; referral of a doctor or specialist; referral to hospitals and doctors worldwide; return of dependent children; and more.

travel services
Atlas Assurance also includes a variety of travel services, including assistance with lost documents; organization of emergency trips 24 hours a day; diplomatic and consular assistance; transportation of traveling companions; and more. Customers even get worldwide legal assistance and bail.

Atlas insurance is included for all customers as part of the line’s “All Inclusive All The Way” philosophy. Cruise fares also include complimentary round-trip airfare; unlimited premium wines and spirits, international beers and coffees; prepaid tips; fleece parkas; L’Occitane toiletries; and more. Fares are fully commissionable for travel advisors, as are any pre-cruise purchases, such as pre-cruise tours or upgraded bottles of champagne.
