Where is this destination on a cruise ship.
 
The pic in this looks so cool. I would like to take a cruise over the summer. This looks like you zipline down and over the ocean and perhaps land on an island. My daughter and I love to zipline. If anyone has been on an island that had this I would love if you would let me know.

I'm pretty sure that's Labadee... Royal Caribbean's private island. I think their "Western Caribbean" itineraries stop there. (Including mine in June :banana:)

The zip line is ~$90pp IIRC. That's one "training" zip on a short line, then the over water one.

I *think* that is Dragon's Breath zipline in Haiti

Too funny, Mom21. I got that travelzoo email and was captivated by the picture!

I can't view the picture, am at work and the link is blocked. But, to share my experience. I went on a zipline tour in Belize. it was about $70, and had 9 (if I remember right) lines. It was a blast! It did not go over water. It went through jungle terrain. Oh my, was it ever hot there in September. but we were having so much fun, it didn't matter. Went to the beach afterwards and cooled off there.

Labadee is also a private island stop for Celebrity Cruise Line (owned by RCI).

Yup, it's Labadee. Been there, rode that! It was fantastic. :banana:

Mom21 01-25-2013 09:40 PM

I knew you guys would know. You rock.

bgirldeb......we could go together......wouldn't that be fun?

momz we did one in Sept in Dominican Republic. Sounds like same thing.....through a forest. Yes it was hot and sweaty but we had fun. My kid was 11 at the time (she will now be 16 in March of this year) and terrified. She wanted to go first in front of me. I really wasn't sure she would go at all. By the time I landed on the second or third platform she was all smiles and laughing with other people that had gone before us. She said she was still scared, but liked it. That is something as she isn't a social person and very shy. By the end she landed on the final platform and was no where in sight when I made it there. She had taken off into the cabin there to remove her gear and was chatting away with the staff. She LOVED it. It was great. This was a big step for her. She can be quite the timid child.

I need a "LIKE" botton on here like I do on Facebook....LOL.:thumbsup2

Wow, they certainly have upgraded Labedee since I was there in 1988. And it was vastly upgraded in 1988 from when I was there in 1986.

We stopped there on an Eastern Carribbean itinerary, too. (Zip line wasnt' there, though)
