Below Deck Mediterranean forms part of the beloved Below Deck franchise and the reality series follows a different crew each season. The sixth instalment sees Captain Sandy Yawn and her crew take over Lady Michelle in Croatia. Stewardess Julia d’Albert Pusey made her debut on the Ionian Princess and she spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about the show’s developments.
Below Deck Med started airing back in 2016 and the spin-off series has continued to be a huge hit.
With each season, the crew entertain charter guests onboard luxury superyachts as they tour different parts of the world.
Julia was Second Stewardess in the series and she opened up about how the crew has changed since the first season.
She joked: “I think the crew have become younger, wilder and are bitchier, ha!
“Our season was the first and probably a bit tamer, everyone was new bar Ben [Robinson] so we didn’t know what we were letting ourselves in for or what to expect.
“The show has grown so much in popularity now so the new cast can watch old episodes and have an idea of what the show involves – I think I went in a bit blind!”
The first season saw the Ionian Princess tour Greece and Julia said it formed one of her favourite memories.
She said: “Naxos, Greece is a beautiful place and somewhere I’d definitely add into a Greek Island hop trip.
“I love the culture, food and climate. From the actual show, it was a once in a lifetime crazy experience, definitely one to tell the grandkids for sure.
“My favourite memory was in Santorini, the crew had just had dinner and then we watched the sunset, it was stunning and a brief moment of peace.”
The series is renowned for its intense level of drama as the crew experience various clashes.
They also have to contend with the sometimes demanding and difficult charter guests.
Asked whether there was anything she would change during her time on the show, she said: “For sure, I would have not taken the experience so seriously.
“It’s difficult to balance being a yachtie with the cameras. Being a stewardess, you are expected to have extremely high standards.
“I found it hard to drop my guard relax my work ethic – but if I had my time again I would have more fun and relaxed a little more.”
Having gained a lot more life experience, Julia said she would have definitely stood up for herself more.
She added: “I would be more vocal and opinionated with my feelings. I’m older now and wouldn’t accept arrogant behaviour.”
Julia is no longer working on boats and she instead launched her own business – Myrtle & Maude.
The company produces natural vegan products for pregnancy and it has continued to boom during the coronavirus lockdown.
She is also appearing on the Bravo show Below Deck Galley Talk, where crew members share their comments on the series so far.
Fans can follow Julia on Instagram to stay up to date with all of her latest ventures.
She has more than 71,000 followers, who can also follow her Myrtle & Maude Instagram page.
The business was set up in 2016 and expectant parents receive advice and pregnancy wellbeing products.
Below Deck Mediterranean airs on Bravo and Hayu, as well as Peacock and NOW.
