Day 4 on ICON OF THE SEAS - A SKY SAFARI ZIPLINE in ST KITTS \ Do We Recommend This Excursion?

Join us as we embark on Royal Caribbean​⁠'s Icon of the Seas out of the Port of Miami for a 7-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise. This was for Spring Break 2024 and we left on March 23, 2024.

This vlog covers our first port day on the cruise which was the island of St. Kitts. This was our first time visiting this Caribbean island.

We booked the "A Sky Safari Zipline" excursion through Royal Caribbean. This seems to be a very popular excursion. It was sold out for over a year before our sailing. I would check every so often and finally, about a month before we sailed, 3 spots opened up. So if you are even remotely interested in this excusion, book it. You can also cancel later if you decide not to do it.

I was concerned if Rider would enjoy this. We showed him videos beforehand and he was very excited. However, as we saw with Crown's Edge, he can be very excited about something, but then get too nervous or scared when it comes to actually doing it. I did think he would love it, but the challenge was getting him to try the first line. He did and really wasn't that nervous as the staff was excellent and made it a lot of fun for him and after the first zipline, he was all in.

There are 5 ziplines in total, including the first test line. This wasn't very long, but I still recommend it. Make sure to bring cash to tip the bus driver and the guides. And if you want to take pictures with the monkeys afterwards, most of these vendors charge $10/per person. Lockers are also available to rent.

All in all, I was so happy with this excursion and would absolutely recommend it.

A Sky Safari Zipline Overview

Experience thrills and amazing views as you zip over rainforest canopy, across valleys and streams, and through tunnels of lush tropical vegetation on a course created on the historic Wingfield Estate. After orientation and a trainer-line run, ride up through the towering trees of the Valley of the Giants, with fantastic panoramic views of St. Kitts. Fly down via 4 zip lines as long as 1,400 feet and up to 25 stories high!
