Couple Finds Hidden Camera Pointing at their Bed in Carnival Cruise Room
Creepy, creepy, creepy. That’s the first three words that come to mind over this story. A couple told Inside Edition they found a camera facing their bed in their stateroom. The incident happened last October aboard the ship Carnival Fantasy for a three-day Caribbean cruise.
The couple spoke to Inside Edition in an interview that will air on Monday:
“I said, ‘Is that what I think it is?'” Chris said. “And she looked at it and she became concerned. And we were just really flabbergasted that there’s a camera in the room and it’s plugged up and it’s working.”
Chris filmed with his cell phone as a Carnival employee dismantled the video transmitter.
“I was thinking, ‘I can’t believe this is actually happening to us,'” Chris said.
The couple said they decided to come forward because they do not think that Carnival handled the situation properly. Carnival initially responded to them that the item was not a camera. But the couple believed that it was.
Carnival Cruise Line told Inside Edition in a statement that they did a full investigation and found a “video transmitter” in the room. However, the cruise line said the device did not have the capability to record because it was not connected to and electrical source.
The couple claims the camera was warm to the touch. Pretty crazy if true. The item has been sent over to the FBI for further investigation. But it is troubling that somebody with access to staterooms had to have likely put the camera there. That person is also likely to still be working on the cruise line. In this case, if Carnival’s finding is accurate, there was no filming. But it’s troubling to think that the person who placed the camera may have them other places.
Perhaps after this incident, they’ve even sought to hide them better. Regardless, Carnival should take this quite seriously and try to find the person that placed the item there, even though it supposedly wasn’t working.
