On 1 March, photographer Jon Tonks left New Zealand on a Pacific cruise, invited on board as a guest lecturer. Twenty eight days later, the boat docked in San Diego, in the midst of the global pandemic.
What started as a normal sedate cruise saw the ship refused port in several countries over fears of the virus. The passengers left on board safe from the virus but stranded and unable to return home. The story of Jon and his fellow passengers is featured on theguardian.com
