Travel insurance - Coronavirus-related

I know the ultimate answer is call the insurance company but forewarned is forearmed...


We booked our ferry from Ancona to Greece in the 2nd half of April back in November 2019. I fully expect Italy's lockdown to continue through April, and Greece has also shut schools and reduced transport. Eastern European countries are also locking down. We have annual travel insurance with Allianz, a policy we've held for several years, which is not the same as the ones they are currently selling. The T&Cs for the current policies exclude cover for epidemics and pandemics, but presumably government guidelines will soon advise against travel to or through Italy (if they don't already, and if it were even possible with the lockdown).... What chance we'll be covered for our ferry booking? Or do I just have to write off over Fr 500 through no fault of my own?
