Below Deck Mediterranean Cast and Crew: Everything you Need to Know
2020-07-01

With Bravo’s brand new season of Below Deck Mediterranean in full swing, we take a look at the cast of season five, featuring Below Deck newcomers as well as some familiar faces…

What is Below Deck?

Below Deck Mediterranean is a series documenting the lives of superyacht crew members working on board a charter yacht. Below Deck Mediterranean is a spin-off show of the hit series Below Deck and follows the crew on a charter season in the Mediterranean. After four seasons sailing in Greece, Croatia, Italy and the South of France, season five will take place in Mallorca on board 60 metre superyacht The Wellington – the largest Below Deck boat to-date. Season five premiered on June 1 on Bravo.

What's the difference between Below Deck Mediterranean and the original series of Below Deck?

The original Below Deck series was filmed in the Caribbean, Bahamas and British Virgin Islands, with each yacht captained by Lee Rosbach. In 2015, following the series’ success, Bravo announced that it would be taking the show across the pond to the Mediterranean, and season one of the spin-off series premiered the following year.
