    When I booked our cruise, I wasn't worried about flying to MCO and boarding on same day. Now that I've flown to MCO x5, flight delays may cause us to miss boarding time. Should I change my flights to prior nite or get the insurance? I am 99 days out.

    Ahoy April!
    I understand your concern because flight delays can be stressful especially when cruising.  Personally, I always like to travel the day prior to my cruise departures because it makes embarkation day a lot less stressful. If you decide to purchase trip insurance, it will cover the cost of flying to the first port of call, but you will still miss out on part of your cruise vacation. 
    I would look into the cost of changing your flights and for a hotel room to see if it makes sense to make this change at this point.  Travel insurance is never a bad idea either because it not only covers your travel costs, but also any medical emergencies that may occur unexpectedly. 
    I hope my answer is helpful, April. Good luck with your decision, and please let me know if I can assist you further with your plans!
