Canceled so hope to get refund

It was canceled so we would like our money back due to ruff water. I guessing you will be in touch with us for refunding.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
I am sorry you could not take the cruise on your scheduled day. During rough lake conditions, the safety of all onboard takes priority over getting to the carvings at all costs so occasionally we need to cancel a cruise in your interests. If this occurs, everyone is offered either a refund or to reschedule their booking. As I do not know who you are, please contact our office to make arrangements for a refund. Many thanks.
