• Valentine's Day on the coronavirus-struck Diamond Princess cruise ship involved gifts of iPhones, chocolate, and roses - with masked dancing below-deck

    5 days ago - By Business Insider

    Passengers aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship have been under quarantine since February 4. They only get to go out and stroll around outside for about an hour, if that, and they are cleaning their own rooms.
    On Valentine's Day, there was dancing below-deck in the kitchen, and all rooms were distributed with an iPhone for medical support from the Japanese government.
    The first group of healthy people was also allowed to leave the ship. 11 elderly passengers have opted to serve the rest of their quarantine on dry land, but approximately 3,500 others are still on board.
