During an interview with security personnel, Jeremy Froias allegedly confessed to hiding a camera inside the public restroom of the seven-day cruise operated by Royal Caribbean. Froias boarded the ship in Miami on April 29th. According to the criminal complaint obtained by The Post, he placed a hidden Wi-Fi camera in the bathroom a day after the ship set sail. 

Days later, a passenger discovered the hidden camera in the bathroom.

“At about 7:00 p.m. on May 1, 2023, another passenger noticed the hidden camera and reported it to The Harmony’s crew. Harmony security personnel searched the bathroom and found and seized the hidden camera,”

an FBI special agent said in the complaint. 

Royal Caribbean security said they found

“several hours’ worth of .mp4 video files.”

According to the outlet, agents have a video of Froias

“setting the camera up and adjusting its angle to get a view of the toilet.”

Froias was also seen on camera connecting his iPhone to the hidden camera using Wi-Fi, the affidavit states. 

The footage showed more than 150 people going in and out of the bathroom, some using the toilet and others changing into or out of swimwear. Some victims were videotaped naked, including children as young as 4 or 5 years old, according to the complaint.

Froias was arrested and charged with

“video voyeurism and attempted possession of child exploitation material,”

according to court documents per The Post.
