A cruise ship docked in Japan has become a "country" on its own after having the second-largest number of confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases outside China

The cruise ship — named 'Diamond Princess' — has been docked in the Japanese city of Yokohama since 3 February.

While Japan as a country has 28 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, there are a total of 218 people who are infected on the cruise ship as of this writing.

According to CNN, the vessel — carrying 2,666 passengers and 1,045 crew members — has been in quarantine since 3 February which is scheduled to end on 19 February.

Despite the grim situation though, a pornography company has tried to keep the quarantine victims busy by offering free porn

According to Fox Business, Miami-based porn site CamSoda is offering free livestreams featuring pornstars in an attempt to ease the boredom of passengers stranded in the vessel.

"They are not only dealing with the fear of infection, which is terrifying, but boredom," said Daryn Parker, the president of porn site CamSoda, adding "We like cruises just as much as the next guy, but without activities or human interaction, the boredom must be crippling."

Passengers can access CamSoda's free content by sending them a copy of their travel documents via email. The pornographic site will then offer 1,000 free tokens, which can be used to pay for the livestreams.

Meanwhile, other than CamSoda's attempt to turn the quarantined ship into a "pleasure cruise", the Japanese government is on high alert and has been giving every assistance the vessel may require

A passenger tweeted the vessel's captain as saying that 45 doctors, 55 nurses, and 45 pharmacists sent by Japan health officials had boarded the cruise to control the outbreak.

Another tweet shows that more than a dozen ambulances are parked at the bay, ready to transfer any infected victims to hospitals.

As for the company behind the cruise ship, they have promised to give full refunds for all of the passengers trapped in the vessel

CNA reported that Princess Cruise Lines, the company behind the cruise ship, will give a 100% refund in future credits, including charges that were imposed on shore activities, port expenses, taxes, and more.

Diamond Princess stated that they will continue providing passengers full service, which quarantine victims have lauded. The cruise has been praised for great room service food and for giving out essentials such as face masks, hand sanitisers, water, and even entertainment.

Photos of passengers' thank-you-note to the crew members for braving their lives while working on the cruise have also gone viral

At the time of writing, a tweet carrying the appreciation notes had garnered over 46,000 retweets.

"Thank you to the crew and the captain for taking good care of us," read a note pasted outside a cabin door.

However, many passengers still voiced their distress.

They claimed that they are living a prison-like lifestyle as they are only allowed about an hour of dock time every few days.

Some of them shared their experiences on social media, detailing how their lives are going every day.

Many of their profiles are swamped with journalists commenting to ask for an interview.

Instagram user @clarelouii said the quarantine has made her lose track of day and night.

"Today we were allowed out again. Hoping this means inside cabins are permitted out on a daily basis for an hour (sic)," said Clare in a post yesterday, 12 February.

"It's hard to grasp any concept of time and it's impacting our memory."

Meanwhile, a senior government medical adviser in China predicts that the COVID-19 outbreak will be over by April:
