Ciara Duggan from Below Deck Sailing Yacht admits that she is surprised that boatswain Malia White from Below Deck Mediterranean rang to sleep with boyfriend and new chef Tom Checketts.
MaliaWhite essentially demanded that chief stew Hannah Ferrier move cabins to accommodate the couple. “We were like, “Oh my God this is why boats don’t hire couples,” Ciara Duggan told the team of Bravo Confessionals.
Fiancé Paget Berry agreed. “It can’t happen,” he said. “Television or not, you have to maintain some kind of good image for the other thousands of couples who work in the yacht.”
“It makes us all look like, ‘Ah we’re a couple we’ll get the bloody master suite. It doesn’t look good,” added Paget Berry.
Below Deck Med: Ciara And Paget Worked Together And Didn’t Share A Cabin
Ciara Duggan sparked a conversation about room assignments when she tweeted that she and Berry hadn’t shared a cabin for six months and didn’t have a breakdown. “Curiosity: Paget and I just spent the last 6 months working on a yacht we couldn’t share a cabin on,” she tweeted, “As First Officer and Chief Stew and we survived.
Jenna MacGillivray, who was the chief stew on Below Deck Sailing Yacht, agreed that the reassignment of rooms seemed bizarre. “In my 8 years at sea, usually no one makes requests for cabin accommodation, you have to take it slow, but even couples don’t get first dibs if it means making others uncomfortable,” she commented on the thread.
“Omg couldn’t imagine moving everyone around so that @BerryPaget and I could share a cabin just because we are a couple,” Ciara Duggan agreed. “Especially if we didn’t join the boat! We made a lot of attempts not to share a cabin even on Parsifal. It is not a big problem.
MacGillivray shared her experience when she worked on a yacht with a boyfriend for three years. She never expected to share a cabin with her boyfriend and the crew should be in full agreement on the accommodation situation.
