(Alliance News) - Carnival Corp has detected unauthorised access to its computer systems three months ago, particularly to data on guests and crew, Bloomberg reported Thursday.

The cruise operator had said in response to questions that it had noticed the intrusion on March 19, with third party access to personal data on customers, employees and crew for its Carnival, Holland America and Princess lines, as well as company medical operations.

Bloomberg reported that Carnival has notified regulators and hired a cybersecurity firm to investigate.

"There is evidence indicating a low likelihood of the data being misused," the group stated.
