I had an family emergency happen at 11 PM the night before I was to leave on a 15 day (May 31) I normally don't pay for my trips in full until I get on the boat, however in this case I called a few weeks ago to pay for the entire trip $3995 or something close to that amount. I didn't ask the boat yet and I know the rules about cancelling trips at the last moment, and I'm not complaining about it. But I always only paid for half the trip, and paid the final half on departure. I understand that when cancelling a trip the 1/2 deposite is lost. However shouldn't I get the other half back as the trip was overbooked by one, so my late cancellation should have been covered by the overbook by one to cover cancellations (The boat was overbooked by 1 with a standby list. I didn't call the office, and I'm not going to make a big issue out of it reguardless. I only cancelled because I was asked to by several members of my family. I have never paid in full until this trip, and I will not do so in the future. I have never cancelled a trip until this one.
