It's one vacation Cheryl and Paul Molesky of Syracuse will never forget.
They set sail on the Diamond Princess ship in Japan for a 14-day cruise with two family members. But, their trip ended sooner than expected.
"We're quarantined on the Diamond Princess,” said Cheryl. “We're sitting in our stateroom because we can't leave. Luckily we have a balcony."
That was day one of the couple's YouTube diary, as they document their 14-day quarantine that ends February 19. Thousands of passengers are being tested for the coronavirus.
So far, more than 200 passengers and crew members have the virus.
"It's scary knowing that anytime there could be a knock on the door and they could whisk you out of the room,” said Cheryl.
The Moleskys were tested Thursday and are waiting for results, but they're feeling healthy and safe.
"We're comfortable here,” said Cheryl. “Everybody back home keeps trying to rescue, but we're like if you're happy and warm don't open your mouth. But, we'll eat our words if we get sick."
As of Friday, some passengers are allowed off the ship to be quarantined, but the Moleskys want to stay on board.
"If we could be taken off the ship, what does that mean,” said Paul. “I have no idea. I think it's more of the unknown is what we're worried about, and we still don't know how we're going to get home."
They hope their questions are answered soon. Despite the chaos, they're staying positive and even say, they'd do it all over again.
"There's no one I'd rather be stuck with 14 days than with my husband,” said Cheryl.
The Moleskys say they if their tests are positive, they should know within the next two days. But, if they’re negative, then it will take longer. So, no news is good news.
Once the quarantine is over, they hope they can finish their trip in Japan.
