Default Zipline through Carnival

Has anyone booked the zipline through Carnival? If so how long were you there & how crowded was it?
The Tour Store is no longer able to book the zipline when Carnival is in port & I usually don't like to book through Carnival.
My DH & I want to do some type of adventure day in St. Kitts & have also considered ATVing or a catamaran safari.
We are arriving on the Victory & already have two touring days, two beach days & the river tubing in Dominica planned so we would really appreciate any suggestions for St. Kitts.
Thanks,
Juli

Default Zip lining

We loved it!!! We are in our 50's and there was a 8 year boy in our group. We were on the first tour of the day and had a blast. They only take about 8 in a group....so try to be first. No waiting..... After ziplining they give you a little history tour of the area. I have never ziplined before and this was one of the highlights of our cruise. I took pictures while on one zip line. Touched the top of trees on another. I thought it was well worth the money. We did have to carry our gear a little ways, but nothing too hard. Just one thing..there is one trainer line and 4 long lines. It is not a very long course of 8-10 lines like others I researched. We got pictures for $5 what a value.

Thanks for the info. How many people do you think went on the tour from Carnival? Are there different times? Did you go there on a bus?
This sounds like so much fun even though I have plenty of respect for heights (in other words heights terrify me) but you only live once! So maybe less lines are better for me! LOL!
I just don't like the crowds & the herding that goes along with Carnival tours. I wish we could still book the ziplining independently & we would definitely do it!
Thanks,
Juli

Cool Breeze- we're also booked on the River Tubing in Dominica and Zip Lining in St. Kitts- both through Carnival- have never done either. When are you going? We are going 8/22.
I watched the Zipline on you tube that someone posted. Looks like so much fun!

We are going 10/3/10. We booked the river tubing directly through Antours & will have to book the zip lining through Carnival if that is what we do.
Please come back & tell us how your trip was. I am sure it will be wonderful!

There was another thread on this board a little while back - one of the poster's had recently been on this excursion and said really good things about it.

Here's the link: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1198721

I believe he also included a YouTube link to the photos and videos he took.
