Labadee question #2
 
Hi All,

Thanks again in advance for your answer/advice. Now I understand this is Royal Caribbeans "private island" gated area. My question is once we are off the ship in this area, are all the activities included in my cruise price or is there additional costs for the water slide/trampoline type of things I've seen in pictures?

Thanks,
Jeff

For your cruise fare you get the beaches and barbecue lunch. Things like the zip line, jet skis, etc., are sold as excursions. Look here. If the link goes to something about checking out cruise deals just click on the link for 'continuing onto' at the bottom of the page.

Couple more questions about Labadee. Was going to start a new thread but hopefully someone reads this and can help out

1) Since Labadee is "owned" by Royal Caribbean, can you use your ship card to pay for drinks while there?

2) The Dagons coaster they have is not exactly a traditional coaster, but looks fun...and maybe just a bit dangerous. Has any actually been on it?

Yes, they do offer beverage service while on the beach and you will use your sign/sail card for those purchases. Sorry, have not been on the ride...

Soooo, should I assume then that if you buy the alcohol package that you will be able to use it at Labadee as well

Here is a video of the "coaster" at labadee in case anyone hasnt seen it. Looks a little...I dunno....dangerous. I have a feeling that with all the regulations in the U.S.....you'll never see one of these close to home

Can't answer the question on beverages, but I have been on the coaster.( last june) It is fun , more scary than fun though. Each person has their own car to ride on and each car will be spaced about 75ft apart. Your brakes are controlled by a hand lever and once the cable pulls you to the top of the hill,it releases you and gravity takes over. You can get to going very fast, So safety depends on the person behind you. If they aren't paying attention or don't pull up the brakes in time it will be bad! kinda pricey though, I think it was about $35 per person and last about 3-4 minutes.

Sounds like a fun ride to me :-)

I was told the alcohol packages can be used at Labadee and Coco Cay since the bars there run just like those on the ships. You cannot use the package to order from room service, and I think there are some other restrictions too but I don't recall them.

Stay on the ship and enjoy the peace and quiet while everyone is ashore. Great spa deals can be had too!
