And now for something completely different ... what one couple encountered while entering their cabin

They always tell you to expect anything. First time cruisers embarking on a cruise and entering their cabin find ..... oops.

I never knew the cruise lines had video cameras in the hallways.

They have cameras everywhere, inside and outside, except for inside the cabins and bathrooms.

Big Brother is always watching (and recording).

Yep, for situations just like this!

Well, that would be better than the time we came across a young couple "Busy" during the day--by the pool--no less.

Still--- OBC for what you see is maybe asking a bit much.

USA Today---- says:

"Norwegian Cruise Line is denying a British couple's allegation that they found a crew member having sex in their cabin during a recent voyage.

In a statement sent to USA TODAY, the Miami-based line suggested a thorough investigation of the allegation had proved it untrue.

“The thorough investigation undertaken, including full review of security footage of the corridor where the stateroom was located, does not corroborate the allegation," the line said in the statement.

Bobby and Mary Jackson of Northern Ireland, both in their 60s, had told Scotland's Sunday Post over the weekend their first image upon entering their tenth-floor room on the Norwegian Jewel in October was of the back of a naked man on top of a woman in what was to be their bed.

The Jacksons said they had just boarded the 2,376-passenger vessel at the time of the alleged incident. They said they later were told the man in the room was a worker on the ship.

The story has been picked up by news outlets across the globe.

In its statement, Norwegian said it operated its ships at the very highest standards.

"Any incidents that may fall below these standards are thoroughly investigated and actioned appropriately,” the line said.

That's pretty gigigdy

NCL didn't provide much detail here for evidence. A camera in the corridor might show the guests entering their new cabin but not hastily retreating. Or it might have shown no crew members entering or leaving the cabin during the time frame in question.

CLNs asks this---"The crew-in-passenger-cabin sex incident allegedly occurred last October, yet NCL "thoroughly investigated" and denied the incident only now, and only after the story went viral?"

I'm sure they don't have a video inside the cabin, or do they? This all reminds me of this release last year--- " 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."

That would surprise me some. I might not be "horrified" by it. Who knows maybe this story will make people think they should not go on cruises and it will keep the prices down.

My thought is that NCL did the investigation at the time of the complaint. There was no need at the time of the investigation to publicly state it had found nothing.

As far as the camera, I believe that it was found to not be plugged in to anything. Probably left there by a prior passenger either for security reasons (see who goes in his room) or *other* reasons to record his escapades (which may require decontamination of the ceiling).

Well ... cruise ships are known for their entertainment .......
