So on our upcoming southern caribbean honeymoon cruise on the Adventure, my fiancée and I would like to do one of the canopy/zipline tours. The only problem is that there are a bunch to choose from and they all seem similar. I've listed them below - has anyone done any of these? Which is the best? What would YOU do? I'm picturing a great big obstacle course in the sky - is that correct?

A few things to consider - we are 24 and 25, and in good shape, so no worries about difficulty. We are looking for a tour with the most "obstacles" that provides the greatest challenge and thrill. Finally, we may have free day passes to Sandals at both St. Lucia and Antigua which we would like to use if possible. So if all other things are equal, a canopy tour at either St. Marteen or Barbados would be preferred – but we might be willing to pass on one day at Sandals if that particular tour is good enough (plus, we don’t def. have the passes yet).

Here are the options:

Barbados - Aerial Trek Zipline Adventure ($90)

St Lucia – Rainforest Canopy Adventure ($85)

St. Marteen – Loterie Farm Treetop Adventure Tour ($90)
http://www.royalcaribbean.com/shoreExcursions/product/d...est&ActivityTypeId=2

Antigua – Canopy Tour ($98)

Thanks for the help everyone !

Sorry, Mike, you won't get me on one of those things. I would think St. Maarten would be the best one out of the 2 choices, there's good snorkeling in Barbados, not so good in St. Maarten. You could do the zip line in St. Maarten then take a cab to Maho beach and watch the jets land on top of you

I don't know what it is because I had questions too about the zip line & no responses. Just guessing that no none replied because they haven't done it.

I replied to someone about a zip line, if you google "zip line" it has a wikipedia entry. A zip line is a cable strung across an area. They put you in a harness and you go "zipping" down the line.

I've seen videos of that - they get crazy close! I would def. like to check that out.

Zipline = single person ski lift, going the wrong way at high speed
