Couple's creepy discovery in cruise ship cabin: "Is that what I think it is?"

Couple's creepy discovery in cruise ship cabin: "Is that what I think it is?"

A US couple from Florida made a creepy discovery in their cruise ship cabin during what was supposed to be a relaxing holiday.

Chris and Dana White were enjoying their three-day Carnival cruise to the Caribbean last October before they found a device pointed in the direction of their bed.

When they went to have a closer look, they realised it was a video camera that was intentionally placed in between their TV wires.

Speaking to Inside Edition Mr White said, “We were just really flabbergasted that there’s a camera in the room and it’s plugged up and it’s working.”

“I just immediately felt like we had been invaded,” Mrs White added.

“Our privacy has been invaded.”

After making the shock discovery, the pair informed the cruise company who then asked an employee to remove the camera from the premises.

After launching an investigation, the company said that a “video transmitter” was found by the staff on the ship but did not mention if the device was connected to a power source or if it was able to record, according to a report by USA Today.

Carnival has alerted US Customs and Border Protection and has also given the transmitter to the FBI for a more detailed analysis.

The incident comes after a young couple came across a video camera in their Airbnb while visiting Canada. The camera was built into an alarm clock.
