Elderly couple praised for clever answer to canceled cruise: 'No problem'

After their 53rd-anniversary trip got canceled, this adorable couple recreated the getaway right in their living room.

David and Norma Trill, of Melbourne, Australia, were heartbroken when their celebratory cruise was called off due to coronavirus fears.

However, their daughter, Jane Trill, had a delightful plan to help her parents, both 74 years old, feel as if they really were sailing the ocean blue, all from the safety of their own living room.

Jane helped set up her robe-clad parents in front of a television, which was playing a scenic YouTube video of the ocean on loop, so they could sit back, sip wine and pretend they were cruising leisurely.

She later shared footage of the makeshift vacation on Facebook, writing, “Cruise Cancelled? No problem.”

One version of Jane’s video racked up nearly 4 million views and countless positive responses.

"Omg! I love it!" wrote one woman.

"Really great," said another. "My heart goes out to all of you lovely people who had booked cruises, lets hope you can still go at a later date."

Jane again took to Facebook later on to call the public’s response to the clip “nothing short of amazing.”

“Perhaps a nice anniversary gift given your cruise was canceled,” she added, tagging her parents.
