In addition to these extra sailings, our operational teams will be monitoring traffic levels closely over the long weekend, and the company has the ability to add extra service at the end of the night if the need arises. 

 

Reserved customers ​that can be accommodated on the ne​xt sailing will be contacted by email with their new sailing time.  Those reserved customers ​that cannot be accommodated on the next sailing will have their reservation fee refunded and will be contacted via phone and email.
