Captain Lee Explains Why Crew Members Sleeping in Guest Cabins Is Such a Big Deal

The Below Deck captain says "guests rooms are off limits" for the crew — but he will make an exception.

Would Captain Lee Rosbach Work With Rachel Hargrove Again?

As we've seen time and time again on Below Deck, it's not exactly uncommon for members of the crew to develop romantic relationships during the charter season. However, couples on the show occasionally seek out some alone time between charters by heading into guest cabins, an act that Francesca Rubi deemed "so inappropriate" on the January 25 episode.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Unsurprisingly, Captain Lee Rosbach is in full agreement. "The guests' rooms are off limits unless you have permission," he said on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. "That has been granted on occasions but they're usually special occasions, not just because you have carnal needs you want to satisfy."

Chef Rachel Hargrove, who was also a guest on the WWHL episode, elaborated on why it's important for the crew to avoid sleeping in guest cabins. "It's not that great of an idea. It's kind of disrespectful, especially if you're not cleaning up the cabin," she said. "It's not your boat. Technically on most boats it's against the contract that we sign as crew members because that's the owner's and the guests' area and it's disrespectful."
