It’s the final night of the final charter and most everyone is ready for it to be over, except for Brianna it seems. She probably knows that the charter ends her fling with Nico. Kate and Kyle talk about their issues briefly before she sends him off to don a clown suit for the evenings carnival festivities and fireworks. Matt is going all out with a fantastic seafood tower and other goodies. The crew sets up a champagne tower and blows up a ton of balloons and gets into a costume. Jen is a mime for obvious reasons. It seems that Kyle still has hurt feeling about Kate being snippy with him which he airs to Nico. Nico is happy to jump on the Kate bashing train with him. Dinner is a huge success.
After dinner the primary requested a champagne fight with the crew. Thankfully, Captain Lee feels the same way about this activity as I do. He says, ” Mr. Sykes stands a better chance seeing God two times in the next thirty seconds before he’s ever going to spray me with a bottle of champagne.” For a dash of extra stupidity, they have pies to throw in each others faces. Obviously this made a huge, huge mess on the deck.
The next morning, Jen sleeps through breakfast. Of course.
Tim leaves happy for a change and gives a really, really, fat tip to Captain Lee. The interior crew celebrates with champagne. Kate and Bri try to tell Jen how annoying she is. Jen plays victim and storms off. That is sort of emblematic of the entire season.
It’s time for the last tip of the day. Captain Lee gives everyone good reviews for the most part. Captain Lee officially promoted Nico to Bosun and presented him with his stripes. He seemed genuinely impressed. They got $30,000 in tips! Wow! That is $2,720 per person! I think that was about my monthly salary when I first started teaching!
The crew takes a bunch of champagne up to the top of a fort to watch the last sunset of the season together. Nico starts crying because he is missing his brother that passed away.
They return to the ship and get ready for their last night on the town. Brianna has a talking head and tells us that Nico has been a bit cold toward her ever since they spent the night in the hotel. She’s not sure what is going on with their plans to stay in the islands together for a few extra days.
Nico pulls Bri aside very early in the evening and tells her that he has to go home early because of things he doesn’t want to talk about concerning his family. He doesn’t want her to think he is just bailing on her. Jesus this guy can’t even properly dump a girl. She is literally comforting him for breaking up with her. Because she doesn’t even realize he is dumping her.
Jen hunts down Kate to try to find out what she did that caused her to be so mistreated all season. Um Jen, it’s what you didn’t do mostly and your sassy mouth. Kate shuts her down.
Back on the boat for the final night things must have been awkward for Nico and Bri. Bruno cries the next morning because he is leaving. Kyle leaves hugging everyone. He is a bit miffed that he and Kate are leaving on bad terms. Bruno nervously asks Captain Lee for a letter of reference and he agrees. Bruno looks forward to more yachting in his future. Matt is off to Canada to hone his craft for the next time. Baker is proud of her growth as a deckhand. Kate and Jen have the awkward hug and Jen leaves.
Bri leaves slightly broken-hearted. Nico’s girlfriend will be picking him up from the airport. I’m not sure I want to see Nico on future seasons. Oddly, I have gotten over my hatred of Kate. I can’t imagine a season without her now. Kate wants to come on the next season as a guest. Captain Lee says that eventually the crew did a good job in spite of themselves. Captain Lee says he still has the best damn job in the world.
Captain Lee filmed an end note about the terrible damage that hurricane Maria did to the islands. Most of it was cut off by my DVR.
I really enjoyed this season. Did you?
