It's something I was hoping to begin doing a while ago.
I was planning to go on a cruise. I adore cruises!
But there has been many problems happening.
Here is a montrealgazette.com article entitled, Montreal couple aboard 'Diamond Princess': 'Get us off the ship': https://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/montreal-couple-aboard-diamond-princess-get-us-off-the-ship.
Hopefully, you read that article. I can only share a bit (I copied/pasted):
A Montreal couple quarantined aboard the Diamond Princess in Japan are accusing Canadian authorities of jeopardizing their safety as the number of coronavirus infections has soared to more than 170 on the cruise ship in less than two weeks.
“We’re like sitting ducks,” said Bryan Doyle, arguing that the luxury liner has become an “incubator” for the highly infectious bug. Although at least 2,500 passengers are confined to their cabins, more than 1,000 crew members are free to circulate around the ship and they share sleeping quarters. Midday Wednesday, the New York Times was reporting that a Japanese health official who had boarded the ship to survey passengers has tested positive and is now in quarantine in the port of Yokohama.
Doyle and his wife, Lucie Mauro, have appealed to the Canadian embassy in Japan and Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa to take them off the ship — along with the other Canadian passengers — and fly them back home. But Canadian authorities have ignored their pleas, Doyle charged.
To me, it was sad that it stated that 'Canadian authorities have ignored their pleas'.
Here is a nationalpost.com article entitled, Stranded cruise ship rejected by fifth nation as coronavirus death toll surpasses 1,000: https://nationalpost.com/news/world/stranded-cruise-ship-rejected-by-fourth-nation-as-coronavirus-death-toll-surpasses-1000.
Did you read that article? I'll share a bit (I copied/pasted):
Passengers know little about their circumstances, when supplies and food will run out and if they will disembark soon
The 2,257 passengers and crew onboard the Westerdam luxury liner are in limbo once again after Thailand became the latest country to turn the ship away from its ports, leaving guests desperate to disembark after almost two weeks at sea.
I didn't share much, but you can realize that people on those cruises were experiencing troubles... by countries. :'(
Yes, this happened a while ago... but it was when I was thinking about going on a cruise!
The cruise I wanted to go on, would have made it for me to easily go and see family and friends.
Later, I would have gone to see family and friends also in other countries.
With all those problems happening, I prayed for those people... and prayed about what I should do.
Because I trust God.
Thinking about that, made me think about Proverbs 3:5, "Trust in the with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.".
Amen! Trust in the with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Yes, I trusted in Him.
As I always do... and always will.
Until next time...
