Each week, the crew welcome on board a new set of charter guests who have hired the boat for a few days of fun in the sun.

But as you can imagine, things don’t always go to plan as the crew try to balance pleasing the very rich guests while also living in very close quarters to one another.

Season one takes place on boat Ionian Princess which is led by Captain Mark Howard.
