At first glance, I thought there are worse things than being confined to a ship. And then I read they are confined to their cabins. I would lose my mind.
I agree, such small quarters. When I cruise I only am in my cabin to sleep.

I just saw a passengers from that cruise on the news. He said he felt bad for anyone who had inside cabins/no balcony for some fresh air. Two weeks is a long time to be stuck inside a cabin :oops:.

Can you imagine confined on a cruise ship for two weeks? Pray that there are no sewage problems on the two cruise ships . How do you keep your cabin, cloths fresh and clean? Food must be delivered daily and left at your door and all food trays spoons, forks and all kitchen items must be sterilized daily to prevent the spreading of the virus.
Pray that no crew members test positive for the virus because they lived and worked in very tight areas and quarters.

This virus has not hit the continent’s of Africa or South America .

Thank for all the articles. This is the cruise passenger, Mr. Abel, that I mentioned above sad it was a sad situation for the inside cabin passengers. Not fun!

Imagine you are booked in an inside cabin. No Windows, no pot holes, no balcony for fresh air and no chance to see the sunrise or sunset. You only have your bed, closet, a telephone, a television and your bathroom.

I'd be completely stir-freakin' crazy! This went from a fun filled, luxury chance to check out another culture to being a prison. This will- no- HAS affected the whole travel- and particularly cruise industry. We have three cruises already booked for this year, and are getting bulletins of lower and lower prices. So far everything is cancellable and trip-insured.

Just terrible! We have a cruise out of CA in March. The cruise line is already telling people if they have been in mainland China in the last 14 days they will not be allowed on. Ugh....just reading this makes me want to upgrade to a balcony...just in case. I couldn't even imagine being stuck in a 184 sq ft inside room with husband and kid.

And these ships, even when they clear and head back to port, nobody in their right mind will want to go on them.

We're going on our second cruise in the fall. Glad we insist on cabins with balconies!

This will also make us change our protocol on meds. We always bring a few extra days worth in case of air cancellations and the like. We will now bring with us a good 2-3 week supply when traveling internationally.

Passenger doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on reddit. The guy is handling it better than I would, but it's even worse that I imagined. Sort by "new" for the latest updates. (Sorry about the large preview box. I can't find a way to minimize it or delete it).

When this ship return to its home port; it needs to be taken completely out of service: all the air vents and the whole inside of the ship need to be sterile. Every crew member again needs to be tested before leaving the cruise ship. IMHO.
