Got there 7:30PM and th cruise left without calling or checking if there any passengers missing. There were no specific time about the departure of the cruise. When I booked it says on my booking for 7:30pm but when we got there its already left. I rang in there office this morning to see if I can get a refund but they're saying no refund and asking me to pay extra $65 to rebook it again.

The view from the water was beautiful. The beef delicious but the vegetables were cold. Staff service excellent! Waiting 35 minutes for a late guest completely out of order. 15 minutes and then you take off!!
