What do we know so far about Below Deck Mediterranean season 9?

According to a synopsis provided by Bravo, season 9 of Below Deck Mediterranean will feature "eccentric guests, an abundance of late-night demands that require intervention and a never-before-seen mechanical issue that orders all hands on deck."

"Amidst a saga of delayed provisions, managing a complicated interior department and a medical emergency, Aesha strives to ensure the guests are treated to a five-star service experience," the press release continues. "Chef Jono, a self-taught culinary architect, quickly learns he has high expectations to fill to prove his culinary capabilities to the guests. Meanwhile, the deck crew faces its own hurdles and must learn that communication is key in order to successfully get through the season."

Will we see Captain Sandy's fiancee on Below Deck Mediterranean season 9?

Yes! In a first for the series, season 9 of Below Deck Mediterranean will feature the debut appearance of Captain Sandy's partner, Leah Shafer. The captain had hinted at a cameo back in 2023, telling Us, "Obviously, we’re filming a TV show, so you don’t really see a lot of [my personal life]. But yes, just stay tuned. Maybe that’ll happen."

Not only will she be making an appearance, but it'll be a big one! That's because we know via the trailer below that this season will see Sandy proposing to Leah. After following their ups and downs, we can't wait to see how Sandy pops the question!
