My wife and I are going on a world cruise. All of the Travel Insurance offered by the travel agents I have talked with sell only an entire Grand Package: Cancellation, Airline, Medical, Emergency Medical Evacuation, etc.

The Emergency Medical Evacuation portion is what I need. The other parts are covered by other policies that I already have. All of the travel agents I have talked with claim that it is the entire package or nothing.

Is there any way I can purchase just the Emergency Medical Evacuation Insurance?

Have you looked into Medjet?

Oops I see that I duplicated Neil's post. AE Moormann if you search medjet on this site you can read about the positive experience of one of the advocates with that type of policy.

@AEMoormann Go directly to insurance providers. I'll bet most of them have a med evac policy if its included in their larger packages.
Almost all policies have emergency evacuation included in their policies but they don't sell it as a stand alone product. Some sell medical assistance as a stand alone but not the emergency evacuation.

In fact if you go to Insuremytrip and request a quote on emergency evacuation only the only plan that comes up is Medjet

I've had MedJet Emergency Evac Insurance for many years (long before I got involved with this forum). If you want to read about my husband breaking his hip in Paris, go to the Insurance Forum, I posted in October 2015. I wouldn't set foot out the door without it.
