Norma and Dave, planned to celebrate their 53rd wedding anniversary on a 10-day cruise around the Pacific Islands.
But when the voyage was canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, their daughter leapt into action to rescue their celebration at sea.
The footage shows the 74-year-old lovebirds with their feet up — chilling in bathrobes on lounge chairs and clinking wine glasses as they watch footage of a sapphire-blue ocean on their widescreen TV.
Their daughter Jane said: “They canceled their trip due to the coronavirus and we thought we would cheer them up by simulating the trip using a YouTube video of the ocean and they dressed in their usual cruising attire,”
“We laughed for ages over it and it really lifted our spirits. [We were] rolling on the floor laughing.”
