What is 'Below Deck' Season 9 all about
When an unexpected delay leaves Captain Lee stranded on land, Captain Sean Meagher steps in to oversee the ship with a “hands-on” management style catching the crew off guard and yearning for the “Stud of the Sea’s” swift return. Fresh off his promotion, Eddie’s new role as first officer gets derailed when he quickly realizes he might have to pull double duty on deck if he wants his team to succeed. Chief stew Heather is eager to deliver her guests an unforgettable experience, but when one of her stews becomes severely unmotivated, she must hustle to pick up the slack and maintain her five-star service. In order to move forward, chef Rachel must tend to some unsavory leftover beef with Eddie from last season. As department “boat-mances" blossom, alliances form and bonds are broken, this crew proves the Caribbean seas are as choppy as they are clear.
