Very few people leave Australia
with insurance. It's just too expensive.
Are you able to get an extension in your visa under special circumstance, just long enough so you aren't pushed at all? Don't want to be reading about you here on CF if you head
off in less than the best of weather
I truly hope you have more than $14k invested. I can't see anything only worth that on such an extended cruise
. Safety gear
alone would be half that.
Welcome to CF by the way.
