TV show description:
In this spin-off to The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, twins Zack and Cody Martin (Dylan and Cole Sprouse) head to the high seas to study on the swanky cruise ship, the S.S. Tipton. They’re joined by their spoiled friend, London (Brenda Song), whose father owns the ship and it’s school, Seven Seas High. The Tipton Inn’s former hotel manager, Mr. Marion Moseby (Phill Lewis), has the task of looking after them as well as running the ship.
The ship cruises around the world as London, Zack, and Cody study with Miss Tutweiller (Erin Cardillo), a teacher who tries to make every lesson fun for her students. Studious Cody wants to do his best to impress Miss Tutweiller, but Zack and London have a hard time caring about school, even if it is on a boat.
One of their fellow classmates is Bailey (Debby Ryan), a young lady who masquerades as a boy to secure her place at the school. While faking her identity, she became messy Zack’s roommate. Meanwhile, organized Cody’s roommate is Woody (Matthew Timmons), a messy guy who loves mischief as much as the twins. With adventures to be found in countries like France, Greece, and India, life aboard the S.S. Tipton is pretty sweet.
Episode 71 — Graduation on Deck
Mr. Moseby tells the kids that London’s father is selling the ship and that it will be dismantled within a week. London starts receiving private Spanish tutoring from Miss. Tutweiller so that she’ll pass her final exam and receive her high school diploma.
After learning that she’s been accepted by the Peace Corps, Maya breaks up with Zack because she does not believe that a long distance relationship will work. Zack gets upset and refuses to attend graduation.
Initially, Cody also refuses to attend the ceremony because he’s been rejected by Yale University — while Bailey was accepted.
Carey and Kurt board the ship and successfully console the twins into attending their graduation ceremony. London successfully passes Spanish and also attends the graduation to get her diploma.
When the ceremony is disrupted by the dismantling of the ship, Mr. Moseby calls Mr. Tipton to tell him that London is graduating and to ask him to delay the destruction. Tipton doesn’t agree and Mr. Mosby goes against his wishes for the benefit of the kids.
Afterward, Woody and Addison distribute class yearbooks and the group shares their final moments together. Bailey decides to go to Yale. London admits that she’ll miss Bailey and Mr. Moseby. Mr. Moseby announces he is ready for a new stage in his life and proposes to Miss Tutweiller. He tells the boys that he will miss them as well.
The series ends with Zack, Cody, and London exiting the ship for one last time.
