We docked in Athens this morning and this is where the cruise will end. No more sail away parties, no more early morning excursions – just one last day on the ship. I have a strong dislike for the end of the cruise because it seems like we just got onboard yesterday!
This morning I set the alarm for 5:45 and watched the sunrise over the mountains of Athens. It was remarkable. I didn’t realize how busy Athens was. There was dozens of ships anchored and waiting to come into the harbor. I didn’t get off the ship today. There just wasn’t enough time.
I wanted to check out the SkyRide one last time while the weather was really nice. I brought my GoPro with me to experience it. I’m sure I looked like a total dork with it clipped onto my ball cap but it got some awesome footage. One thing I did notice is if you’re going to ride it, make sure you pay attention to the open and close times. You want to be one of the first ones in line to ride it, otherwise you’ll be waiting. We were about six people back and it took us about 15 minutes. They run four cars at a time (two on each track) but you have to wait until the other car comes back before you can start (to prevent bumping I guess?). You can see the video I took with the GoPr
