Maybe it's an example of "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade".

Celebrity Cruises is running a new television commercial (see video below). In it, a woman with bright red hair wanders about a phantasmagoric cruise ship to the sounds of The Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick singing their sixties hit, "White Rabbit".
One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall...
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head


Given all the news reports of cruise ships quarantined with coronavirus and travelers sickened with norovirus and other contagious diseases, it seems to me that singing about pills and delirious fantasies might be a topic that cruise ship advertising should avoid.

As Virus Cases Rise on Quarantined Cruise Ship, Passengers Are on Edge
Thousands are confined to their cabins on the Diamond Princess, docked in Japan, and some fear the quarantine is putting them at risk.
It was an unnerving sign for the nearly 3,700 people who had been confined for six days on the ship, which has become host to the highest concentration of coronavirus cases outside China.



Norwegian Joy cruise passengers fall ill with possible corovirus
Passengers fell ill during a 16-day cruise aboard the Norwegian Joy, with four people requesting to be taken to the hospital on Sunday after docking in Los Angeles.
Reports from passengers indicate the illness was the stomach bug known as norovirus, though it's unclear how many people got sick.


Norovirus outbreak on Royal Caribbean cruise ship sickens 475 passengers
The Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas cruise ship is cutting its journey short after 475 passengers and crew members have been infected with a norovirus, Royal Caribbean Cruises announced Thursday.


Cruise ship in St. Lucia quarantined over confirmed measles case
St. Lucia Coast Guard confirmed the vessel bears the same name as one owned and operated by the Church of Scientology.


Outbreak of Legionnaires' disease among cruise ship passengers exposed to a contaminated whirlpool spa
Outbreaks of travel-related Legionnaires' disease present a public-health challenge since rapid, sensitive, and specific diagnostic tests are not widely used and because detection of clusters of disease among travellers is difficult.
