    Yvonne said: ‘Shane wanted to come with me to the hotel as he knew I was terrified. I’ve never been alone abroad before.

    ‘But they wouldn’t let him. They insisted I had to go in alone.

    ‘They took me off the boat like I had the plague. I was wrapped in blue cloth and taken on an ambulance driven at high speed.

    ‘Then they just dumped me with all my stuff in this dark, dingy room.

    ‘It’s like a prison. It’s been utterly miserable. I’ve hardly slept and barely eaten. I told them over and over again that I don’t eat meat but they don’t seem to register it.

    ‘I spent ages on the phone going through the lunch options and said ‘please just give me the potatoes and vegetablesbut when it came it had a chicken breast on it.

    ‘The same happens with breakfast when they drape bacon on everything or lunch when I can’t seem to get cheese without ham. The food is terrible and even the stuff I can eat is slop.

    ‘Thank goodness my daughter forced me to download Netflix on my phone so I’ve had something to do. I’ve been watching old films like Grease, Ghost and Dirty Dancing and having a good cry.

    그녀는 덧붙였다: ‘It was meant to be a last family treat ahead of Ellie-J doing her A’levels and hopefully going off to university but it’s turned into the worst holiday ever.

    Mrs Harnett should finally be released from the hotel on Sunday when she will finally be able to fly home to her family.

    Husband Shane is furious at the way she’s been treated: ‘When we were on the boat I tested negative, and Yvonne was positive, but they made me isolate with hereven though we pleaded with them that it meant our daughter was unaccompanied for three days

    ‘Then when we had plans for her to get home safely and me to stay with Yvonne they wouldn’t let me do that either. They told me I could stay on but not in the same hotel and if I didn’t want to do that to go home. And that was pointless as I couldn’t be with her. So she’s been left completely alone and really upset.

    ‘It’s been a shambles. And I don’t think she’d have caught the virus at all if the boat had been better managed in the first place. I’m furious.

    The cruise was a Marella trip run by Tui who have been contacted for comment.
