Well that was an interesting read.

Well now. i guess there will be a lot of checking around for wiring and possible cameras.Unreal. 

 

At the risk of being paranoid...yer darn right...no wait...that's not being paranoid at all...but it sure isn't something id ever think of...I think I was wandering around in here (or mebbe not) but I remember somebody asking if the cameras on board can see into her balcony or some such...what I think the thread was about had to do with the cameras that scan along the side of the ship, so they can spot doofi sitting in the rails, or falling or being tossed over...I know there are cameras all over, and I could care less..I wonder how many actually work...and how long the "film" is kept...I used to work in the casino biz, and there WERE cameras all over..it took a full blown Federal lawsuit to have em removed from certain locations...the rest, you ignored....

 

I have read other accounts of this sort of thing and most of them have been left by previous passengers.  I hope this one proves to be the same.  Sorry, I cannot document where these have happened, but we have been checking the "electronics" near the TV for about 2 years now.  It never hurts to check. Most likely, all you'll find is a missed "dust bunny".

 

All Ive ever found in a cabin was one of those el cheapo throw away single use cameras.  found it on top of the closet...way up there...I didn't bother to take it, or develop the film...that's how long ago it was.  I wonder what was on it? heheheh

 

Although it could have been a crewmember who placed it to transmit video to a local computer over the intranet (highly unlikely) or by the line to keep an eye on passengers (even more unlikely) it was probably left by a previous occupant who had placed it to make videos of himself and his cabinmate, or to keep an eye on his kids.

Will we ever find out the truth about this - I don't think so.  You can be sure I will look more carefully around my stateroom on my next cruise.  I hope that this was just a one time occurrence.

Today John Heald announced that the whole thing was turned over to Homeland and they reported that the device was incapable of recording anything. 

Well that’s interesting.
