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 )

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

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

Has anyone ever booked a cruise thru Travel Zoo?

ETA: Just wondering because I priced a cruise thru them vs directly thru Royal Caribbean and the price was the same.

If you're interested, let me know and I'll give you the contact information for the Travel Agent we're using for our June cruise.

If you right click on the picture you'll see the file name has the letters NCL in it.

Wondering if this means Norwegian Cruise Line?

I think only Royal Caribbean (which includes Celebrity) stops there. It's their private island (or segment of the island).

One odd tidbit... I was talking to the screener the last time I gave blood, and just because we get off the ship at Labadee (which is in Haiti), we can't give blood for a year.

That's because Royal Caribbean does not allow TA's to discount their cruises. What TA's can do is offer perks such as pre-payed gratuities, OBC, dinners at specialty restaurants, bottle(s) of wine, etc.

IIRC, Labadee is the private island that gets reviewed even higher than castaway cay.
