If the paying registrant opts to not rebook, he/she will receive a full refund of the charged tour. (Please note that coastal flood watches and coastal flood advisories are not considered reasons for cancellation of the trip.)

If the weather on Saturday, July 22nd is deemed inappropriate for outdoor beach activities, optional shuttle service to the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center will be offered.

If the captain of the cruise boat determines that weather on Sunday, July 23rd is inappropriate for a cruise tour, the cruise benefit will be cancelled and each registrant on the tour will receive a $23 coupon good for Torque Travel organized tours. Cancellation of the naval cruise may accelerate the anticipated return time. If the return time is accelerated, the rest stop for dinner may likewise be cancelled.


What are the sleeping arrangements?

All registrants will have space to sleep in the hotel room. The specifics of sleeping arrangements will depend upon the exact number of people booked for the trip, but everyone should be prepared to potentially share a bed. Sleeping partners, if necessary, will be decided by the group at large. All shared beds will be at least the size of a double bed.


Is there any way I can guarantee a bed or room to myself?

If you want to guarantee a single bed or room to yourself, you will need to purchase a single supplement. Please send an email to describing your request for a single supplement. Single beds and rooms may not always be available, so it is advantageous to make your request as early as possible.
