A family that sailed on the Carnival Fantasy says they are waiting for the cruise-line “in action”, about a hidden camera in their room.
A family from Florida is demanding answers from Carnival Cruise Line after finding a hidden camera behind their cabin to the television during the October holiday.
The device is reported to have been discovered by the family of the father during an allergy attack, after he moved the TV to inspect for dust. Sticking out from the wires, he said, was a little camera — still warm to the touch — with the lens pointing directly at the bed, The Miami New Times reported.
The family, who does not wish to be named, added that they only found the camera on the second night of their Carnival Imagination trip from Alabama to Mexico.
“I asked my wife: ‘What is this? This Is what I think it is?” We both went white as ghosts,” he told the New Times.

The man added that he was especially disturbed by the consequences this may have for his minor child.
“My biggest concern is, there is a picture of him online now. And I’ll never know,” he told The Miami Herald.
The ship security team, sent an official of the family of the cab to inspect and disassembly of the camera, but the family feels the Carnival staff tried to downplay the seriousness of the situation, says she was not able, and probably left behind by the last guest, in spite of the camera covered with dust, the New Times reports.
The father also believes that the employees could have compromised the evidence by the handling of the camera, without gloves, as seen in images uploaded to the YouTube channel, Cruise Law.

A later statement from Carnival Cruise Line reiterated that the camera was not operational, and further alleged that Carnival made a “thorough investigation” in accordance with the AMERICAN authorities.
“In October, a small, non-working camera was found in a cabin on board the Carnival Fantasy during a cruise departing from Mobile, Ala. After review by the ship of the engineers, it was determined that machine was not operational,” the cruise line mentioned.
“A full investigation was carried out by the sailing team in tandem with Carnival’s shoreside security personnel that also mention V. S.-law enforcement, including the FBI, the U.S. Customs and border protection, and local police, when the ship arrived in Mobile after the cruise.”

The family told the Herald that Carnival has not yet reached, with more information, or even an apology after the incident. At this moment they are in contact with a lawyer, but not yet planning to file a lawsuit, according to the Herald.
“We tried not to spend the money; we were not trying to be a free cruise,” the father tells the Herald. “I just wanted action taken.”
