I've done the zip lining excursion and loved it...There was some walking involved, nothing terrible...Did that in Jamaica, at the same location, they also had river tubing....Have heard good things about cave tubing in Belize, never done that yet.
You might check out independent providers, groups like Viator and Shore Trips. Your travel agent can help you.

Also if you have a Shore excursions that you just loved that wasn't one of those let me know please.
For any Shore excursions i book i would like to stay under a hundred but am will to go higher if it looks really great.
Thanks in advance.
I am always amazed at what information I can get just by checking the excursion listings for specific islands on this site. The information is very candid and names names like the name of a credible ziplinning excursion on Belize and other information. The information is based on personal experience
and can be very helpful.
Knowing where you are going and what you are looking to do at each port would probably help you get some answers. Almost all ports of call have some version of what you are asking about and I am sure experiences vary!
Live life to the fullest because tomorrow may never come!

I've looked at that and I think its something I would like to do. Not sure if in Cozumel. They have it at other ports so i'll have to figure out which port I can fit it. So that it might not stop me from doing something else I want.
Looking forward to my first cruise.
As Mr. Green stated, I highly suggest looking at booking through a reputable independent shore excursion company like Shore Trips. You'll find the price may be the same, but it'll always be alot less crowded and less regimented, so it'll be more intimate and alot more enjoyable.
Talk to your agent and hopefully they are a Cruise Specialist who's been there done that and can offer some first-hand knowledge about what to do and how to do it cheaper and easier.
I would definitely NOT suggest booking the shore excursions through the cruise line; too expensive, too crowded, and too regimented, so you end up with a much less enjoyable experience.
