In Marquez's novel, love and sickness are conflated repeatedly, and a love like Fermina's and Florentino's, like a sickness, does not follow societal rules, so it is appropriate that the social guidelines allowing the sick a certain freedom (quarantined on the ship, but free to move across the waters) also give freedom to Fermina and Florentino.
