First Port: Labadee, Haiti

Posted · Add Comment

We just came back from our cruise on Royal Caribbean. We had an great time.

We reached our first port, Labadee, Haiti on Tuesday, July 10, 2007. Labadee is a private area that is owned and managed by Royal Caribbean.

When the ship gets to the port, the crew begins unloading food, drinks and ice from the cruise ship. This is prevent anyone from getting any stomach illnesses from the local water supply.

Here are some pictures from Labadee, Haiti:

One of the coolest excursions on Labadee is the Dragon Tail zip line. You start from high above the ocean and zip down a cable for at least 400 yards. For part of the ride, you are basically 3 feet above the water. I took a picture from the ship to give you a good prospective of how long it is. Sick!
