Frequently Asked Questions:

 When do we pay? Payment is collected at the end of the evening on the train. Credit Card information is just to hold the reservation and not pre-charged.

How do I know what dates are available? If the date is dark blue on the calendar, there are seats for sale. If it is grey with a line through it, we are sold out for that date. 

Why can't I book the dome level?  If dome level dining is sold out, then the option will not appear when booking online.

How do I book using my Gift Certificate? Please complete a reservation with a credit card that will only be held, and then present the gift certificate when you arrive.
