Aussie couple ordered wine via drone on quarantined coronavirus cruise ship

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

An Australian couple quarantined on a cruise ship due to the deadly coronavirus kept the party flowing by getting a drone to deliver wine straight to their cabin.

Jan and Dave Binskin, from Queensland, have chronicled their journey of boredom and booze while stranded on the Diamond Princess ship off the coast of Tokyo for the past week.

“Quarantined on the Diamond Princess in Yokohama Japan now into Day 6 of 14 we are confined to our cabin,” the couple wrote on their Facebook account while posing with masks.

“[We] get let out every 4/5 days for 1 hour walk on the deck we are well and in good spirits so far would appreciate any local news.”

Although the Aussie couple had an ocean view — the seas were getting rocky and the Binskins needed some vino.

“Our view for the next 13 days or maybe 28 as they just found another 10 positive and are taking them ashore 😡😡,” they wrote on Wednesday along with an image of the seas.

The couple then reached out to the Naked Wine Club and — much to their delight — received two bottles of Pinot Noir that was delivered to their cabin door by drone.

“Naked Wine Club you’re incredible. Just got the first drop,” they wrote on Friday along with an image of Dave lounging on the bed donning a mask and holding a glass of their finest.

“Thank God for drones, the Japanese Coast Guard did not know what the fu– was going on.”

The Diamond Princess was floating off the coast with about 3700 people aboard as the entire vessel was held under two-week quarantine since they arrived back at the port of Yokohama. A man who disembarked in Hong Kong had been diagnosed with the virus.

The Binskins, and their wine, will be stuck on the ship for another 8 days.

“New update on Masks,” the couple wrote on Monday with an image of their new face protection.
