Feel cheated

I hate to say it, but it was extremely disappointing. Even we could tell earlier that evening that the weather was too cloudy. We called the place 30 minutes in advance to ask if they still thought the cruise should go - they said they would go as planned. We got out on the water - and could see absolutely nothing. I mean nothing. We all cheered because the moon came out for 10 seconds before being obscured by a cloud again. They offered us a second complimentary drink in compensation, but no refund on a JPY5000pp stargazing tour with no stars. We found out from others at our hostel who had gone with other stargazing tours that they got a full refund or rescheduling - this was never offered to us. The guide just kept pointing to the empty sky saying things like "this is where the big dipper would be...if we could see it." For 30 minutes. Very disappointing and ridiculous. The weather was due to typhoons, which were detected 1 week in advance.
