Since the food wasn't delivered in 30 minutes or less, will the descendants of the original customers get the food free?

Also found on board, a dog costume worn by the captain at the time of the sinking, apparently the captain liked to dress up and have relations with a cat and was distracted and ran into a coral reef. Could have happened to anyone.
