How should I deal with my bath problem?

We are having bath trouble. The bond between the structure of the bath and the acrylic surface has broken, and when you step in the bath, the acrylic warps/bubbles. The acrylic is definitely going to crack at some point! What can we do?

There are potentially three options...
1. Fix the bath - Is this possible? Maybe by drilling a hole in the fibreglass and injecting the gap with something?
2. Replace the bath - It's surrounded on two sides by tiled walls and at one end by a tiled shelf level with the bath. There are tiles down the side of the bath that isn't attached to the wall. I'm in London - what sort of price range am I looking at for replacing the bath? Would a lot of tiles need to be pulled out and replaced? Obviously money is an issue or this would be my immediate choice!
3. Live with the bath until it breaks - I could check weekly under the bath for leaks. How long do you think it will/could survive?
I do have accidental damage insurance -- this isn't something that would be covered under this, is it?
