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 published Friday by 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 spotted something strange in their cabin: a device hidden amid wires and pointing toward their bed. “I said, ‘Is that what I think it is?'” Chris White 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.” The couple told “Inside Edition” that they then called a Carnival employee security official, who inspected and dismantled the device while they filmed with a cellphone camera. Carnival did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment. In statements to USA Today and the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Carnival said that a “video transmitter” was found in a guest’s bedroom and that it was turned over to the FBI. “This is certainly a unique and unusual occurrence and it is unclear who or why this transmitter was placed in the guest’s stateroom,” Carnival said. “The safety and security of our guests and crew is of paramount importance and we have taken measures so that this sort of situation does not happen again.” Carnival said the device “was not connected to an electrical source and not capable of recording.” But Chris White disputed that in the “Inside Edition” interview. “It was a camera,” he said. “It was wired up. It was working. It was warm to the touch.” Dana White added: “I just immediately felt like we had been invaded — our privacy had been invaded.” The couple told the program they would never set foot on another Carnival Cruise Line ship. According to Carnival’s website, the Carnival Fantasy, with a guest capacity of 2,056 and an onboard crew of 920, departs from Mobile, Alabama, with cruises to the Caribbean and Panama Canal ranging from two to 10 days.
