An airplane cabin's not a great place for indulging in "me-time" -- after all, you're crammed into a small space with a lot of strangers -- but you hope you can eat, sleep and relax en route to your destination without fear of being watched.
In January 2020, the gigantic Costa Deliziosa cruise ship slipped its moorings in the Italian city of Venice and headed out into the Adriatic Sea on an around-the-world voyage. Around 2000 passengers were on board for what they hoped would be the trip of a lifetime.
Stuck at sea, with home and family far away, the cruise ship crew members who have yet to be repatriated in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic are struggling with being stranded — and it's taking a heavy toll.
When you're passing through an airport, you're usually focused on getting through the security line quickly, on whether your flight's on time, or on the vacation or business meeting waiting for you at your destination.
