Weather & Cancellation Policy
Cruises will run rain or shine, with the exceptions of severe weather or not enough sign ups (we will notify you of a canceled trip - at least 24 hours prior to departure, if possible). If you need to change or cancel your reservation, we would appreciate at least 24-hours notice (4 or more days for groups over 5), so we can update the caterer, or let folks from the wait list onboard. Deposits are non-refundable/transferrable for cancellations/changes made within 24-hours of the cruise, but fully refundable if we, the River Packet, make the cancellation.
