While Aesha Scott and the rest of the Mustique crew had a tough first charter of the season, things aren’t all that bad. As we found out in Episode 2 of Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9, despite issues with provisions and laundry service, the yachties still received a generous tip when the guests departed.

In the episode, which aired on June 10, the charter guests departed what Aesha called “the worst charter” with smiles on their faces and hugs for the crew members — leaving behind an impressive wad of cash. “I’m surprised we got any cash,” Aesha said. But the guests had explained their reasoning.

“On behalf of all the guests, thank you so much. Seriously, we had such an amazing time. Jono [Shillingford], the food, I’ve got to shake your hand,” said the primary guest, Jacob, while leaving. “Obviously, there were a few things to comment on. Coming on the yacht, a little bit of a lack of provisions; it was obviously a little bit disappointing. A few clothes went missing, and in terms of getting pressed … but overall, we genuinely had such an amazing time.”

Aesha’s Return to Below Deck Med Starts with the “Worst First Charter”: “So Unfair”

“That’s great! For no wine?!” said Aesha after Captain Sandy Yawn read the total, referring to the struggle to get wine from the provisioner throughout the charter.

What went wrong during the first Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9 charter?

As previously mentioned, provisions were delayed and the group ended up without one of the charter’s most important necessities: rosé. On day two, the deck crew sailed over to a super yacht to beg for bottles to get them through lunch.

“Do whatever it takes, but get us some wine,” Captain Sandy told them. And they did — for a hefty price.

Other snafus included Chef Johnathan being asleep when the guests had asked for late night snacks, some missing laundry, even more missing water toys, and a challenging docking.

“The first charter, that honestly was probably the most stressed I have ever been in my whole yachting career,” Aesha explained in a recent interview with The Daily Dish. “It just felt really unfair because I had put so much time and effort [into] preparing and planning and making sure everything was perfect before I joined. Then the provisions didn’t come, and all of the preparations that I did were pointless because [of] all of these reasons that were totally outside of my control … I just felt upset because it just felt so unfair.”
