    My in-laws were cancelled for the dinner cruise for the lack of people for our specific night. Ther were offered and took the lunch cruise which ended up costing them more for tip and gratuity which I was taken back since I already paid extra for the dinner cruise. I was taken back that they had to pay additional cost since we originally bought them the dinner cruise. Not sure if I would book again.
