Okay, that's weird. Maybe that's how the room steward always knows when you're in your room or not.

check out 2:30-3:49.

Anybody know about this? I find it very disturbing....
I don't buy that is a hidden camera....

Looks like the light on the other side of the door that lets you know your room card worked.

Never paid any attention to what the other side of the door looked like...

I really don't care if it is a camera anyway.

If the crew is bored enough to watch me getting jiggy in the cabin...
Their loss...

Perhaps this is an attempt at a viral hit? Or to stir up the paranoid amongst the CC readers?

If I were to discover a real hidden camera in my cabin, my response would be to secure the evidence, contact a lawyer, then confront CCL for a possible resolution. Free cruises for life could be one possible solution.

yeah, no offense to anyone but the guy is definitely a loner. Can't wait to get home to his cat?

Highly doubt this is a camera, Carnival would be opening them selves to so many lawsuits.

Uh, yeah.Totally agree.

Bull**** this is a camera. No one is dumb enough not to realize the potential lawsuit.

I doubt it's a camera as well. If it was it wouldn't' make any sense to recess it that far into the mount. The "camera" would have a very limited view of the room therefor defeating the purpose having the camera.

It's probably a light that is use to test if the door(lock) is working by staff.

I am not even going to look at the video. Don't need to. There are no camera in the cabins.
The stewards know when you are gone because they see you in the hallways, and they know what time your dinner time is.

Bingo!

This has to do with the electronics of the lock mechanism. It has been suggested in may be a test port and that is a possible. The place to mount a hidden camera is in the middle of the overhead so it could capture all the action.

The guy with the camera is well on his way to earning the title dork.

Making the hidden camera even worse, the fine print in the sales contract you are agreeing to give Carnival permission to use any images of you taken onboard the ship.

I just got off the conquest, and with the switch to the bathroom light was extra spot. It had plexi glass over it, and inside looked almost like a camera. I figured it was either an IR sensor or a motion sensor so the steward would know if someone was in there. Anyone know what that is?
