We got 90% of the tile grouted in the bathtub surround, and ran out of grout.  Unfortunately, Home Depot was out of the color we are using, so we'll have to finish it up next time.  The grout is really neat, we're using CEG-Lite epoxy grout from CBS.  It's a two-part mixture that chemically sets, so you don't have to worry about measuring water, or making sure it's sealed afterward.  It's completely waterproof/stainproof, and since it's an epoxy it's basically colored glue so it's about 50 times stronger than regular grout.

I was a little afraid at first.  With regular grout if you miss some when cleaning it off, and it's hazy or dirty, with a little more scrubbing it will come off.  With epoxy grout, if you miss some, IT'S THERE TO STAY.  The only way to get it off is with a razor knife or SERIOUS scrubbing.  However, it went on VERY easily (like sandy peanut butter), stayed in the grout lines very well with no running, and came off easily when cleaning.  I highly recommend doing a small area at a time!  The epoxt grout sticks well (to everything), so if you do half a tile and finish that grout line later, you will NOT see the joint line where the two batches come together.  This stuff is GREAT!!  Also, grout mistakes (pinholes, scrapes, etc.) are SUPER easy to repair.  The epoxy grout smooths right over and fills any imperfection, and you'll never know there was a problem.
