    How one small cruise yacht came to the aid of a super-sized ship's crew

    The Dunkirk spirit was invoked by the coronavirus crisis, when a small 25-cabin cruise yacht helped 19 Cuban crew from a mega cruise ship return to their homeland. Variety Cruises’ vessel Panorama made a special 14-day diversion in the Caribbean to repatriate the group from MSC Preziosa. Panorama’s captain Vasilis Mazarkis came across the plight of the Cubans when his ship called into Barbados to refuel ahead of a transatlantic crossing after a winter season spent cruising off the coast of Costa Rica and Panama. Panorama was empty other than her crew. She berthed near MSC Preziosa, a super-sized cruise ship that carries up to 4,360 passengers and 1,300 crew. Nineteen healthy staff were keen to return home but given the constraints of Covid-19, had no realistic option for doing so. Following a request from the Cuban government, Mazarkis agreed to repatriate them to Havana, a journey which took the cruise yacht seven days. The Cuban government covered the cost of the fuel but Variety Cruises made no other charge for their brotherly act. Health declarations were provided by the Captain of MSC Preziosa and the Barbadian medical authorities, and the new passengers were thermo-scanned prior to boarding and on every subsequent day of the journey. After disembarking his charges in Havana on April 4, Mazarkis said: "During these difficult times we are facing, it is important to help each other. Knowing that we were helping fellow seafarers by getting them back to their families makes us all happy. We wish and hope that all stranded crew and passengers alike manage to get home to their loved ones and that the world will return to normal soon."

    How four Amalfi Coast hotels have joined the fight against Covid-19 by selling holidays

    There’s a flurry of problems facing the travel industry at the moment, not least the question of its survival in a time of lockdowns and travel bans. But to their credit, industry leaders are still finding innovative ways to help where they can, as is currently being demonstrated by four hotels on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Recognising that weeks of isolation are only fuelling wanderlust, Le Sirenuse and Il San Pietro in Positano, Palazzo Avino in Ravello and Hotel Santa Catarina in Amalfi, unaffiliated but for location, have clubbed together to do their bit by selling holidays in order to raise money for medical research.

    Where to stay when this is all over, by Telegraph Travel’s hotels editor

    Where would you rather be right now? It’s a question many of us are asking ourselves, our friends and our families on loop. I’m currently living in an alternative universe: this weekend, I was supposed to be scooting around the streets of San Francisco with a friend before driving to Napa Valley. When I’m not lamenting that trip, I’m daydreaming about past memories, like sunbathing in secret coves in Menorca or Greece, or driving, windows down, around the back lanes of Cornwall on a summer’s evening. My reality, as is everyone’s at the moment, is much different.
