    Hi Marina, thanks for your inquiry!

    This would depend on whether your mother’s travel insurance covers the domestic cruise from Sydney to Moreton Island in Queensland.

    Would it be possible to provide us with the travel insurance policy name and travel insurance policy provider? We’d be happy to look into it for you.

    Best,

    Jonathan
