A couple traveling on a Carnival Cruise Line ship last year said in an interview with “Inside Edition” set to air Monday night that they found a hidden camera in their bedroom.
According to an online story released Friday of the news program, Chris and Dana White, a couple from Pensacola, Florida said they were traveling on a three day cruise aboard the Carnival Fantasy cruise ship in October 2017 when they discovered something strange in their Cottage: A device that is hidden among wires and points to its bed.
“I said,” Is that what I think is it? “” Chris White said. “And she looked at it and she became worried. And we were just really blasted that there is a camera in the room, and it’s connected and it works.”
The couple told the Inside Edition that they called a carnival manager, who inspected and disassembled the device while filming with a mobile phone.
Carnival did not respond immediately to Insider’s request for comments.
In statements to USA Today and South Florida Sun Sentinel, Carnival said that a “video transmitter” was found in a guest’s bedroom and was transferred to the FBI.
“This is truly a unique and unusual event and it is unclear who or why this transmitter was placed in the guest’s cabin,” said Carnival. “Our guests and crew safety and security are paramount and we have taken steps to prevent this kind of situation from happening again.”
Carnival said that the device “was not connected to an electrical source and could not record.” But Chris White questioned it in the “Inside Edition” interview.
“It was a camera,” he said. “It was connected. It worked. It was hot to touch.”
Dana White added: “I felt immediately as if we had been invaded ̵
1; our integrity had been invaded.”
The couple told the program that they would never set foot on another Carnival Cruise Line ship.
According to the Carnival website, Carnival Fantasy, with a guest capacity of 2,056 and an onboard crew of 920, departing from Mobile, Alabama, with cruises to the Caribbean and Panama Canal varies from two to ten days.
