A couple from Florida recall a frightening experience on a Carnival Cruise after discovering a hidden camera pointing to their bed.

Chris and Dana White said in an interview with [Inside Edition] Inside Edition that a recording device hidden in the cabin last October was hidden in the cabin at Carnival Fantasy, a three-day Caribbean cruise from Mobile, Alabama.

"I said," Is that what I think? Chris White said. "And she looked at it and she got worried and we were really stunned that a camera is in the room and it's clogged and working."

The couple called Carnival Security and used their cell phone to film an employee who had their device inspected and dismantled. "I thought, & # 39; I can not believe that's actually happening to us & # 39 ;," he said.

In a statement to USA TODAY, Carnival confirmed a "video transmitter" found during a full in-flight investigation by the board crew, but states that it "was not connected to an electrical source and was unable to save. "

"This is certainly a unique and unusual event and it is unclear who or why this transmitter was set up in the guest's cabin" said. "The safety of our guests and the crew is paramount and we have taken action to ensure that this situation does not recur."

Chris White contradicted and made it clear that the device was "a camera." It was fine. It worked. It was warm to touch. "

Carnival said the station had been handed over to the FBI for further inspection, and the Whites had been" informed about involvement in the prosecution. "Following the standard procedures, the shipping company also notified Customs and US Border Patrol.

Dana White told Inside Edition that her peace of mind had been robbed. "I immediately felt as if we had invaded; our privacy had invaded, "she said.
