"approaching our final destination"

No! Approaching "our final station" or "our destination"

The announcer must've been in an apocalyptic frame of mind.

More cheerful than the old announcement "....where this train will terminate"

Or on the Thames clipper boats.

.... Passengers can leave the boat at both ends.

Ever tried leaving at 'both' ends. Think they mean 'either.'

Ah, reminds me of my personal favourite, the 'last and final call' for a flight. Drives me bananas!
