Couple speak of fear on board ship
Bevan and Vanessa Wagstaff, who is five months pregnant, told the Daily Mercury at Proserpine Hospital today that the P&O cruise ship should never have left Sydney.
“It was far from our dream holiday that we saved up for,” he said.
Mr Wagstaff said no-one seems to really know what’s going on.
“There was a feeling of mutiny – small groups were holding public meetings on the top deck to discuss what they thought the captain should do.
“My wife was an absolute wreck and our daughter Tamzyn was very upset.”
Mr Wagstaff said the treatment at Proserpine Hospital was wonderful and everyone was feeling better today.
Saturday's Daily Mercury holds an interview with the family that talks about life on board the quarantined Pacific Dawn.
