Think Twice Before Zipping Along

To most cruise ship passengers, shore excursions that include a zipline over some scenic landscape are assumed to be an exciting but benign activity. Some of the excitement is derived from the speed involved. Some of it, from whatever the participants are skimming over the top of.

An accident last week on Roatan indicates the activity may not be so benign, and another one, not connected to a cruise line, but which got a lot of news coverage, indicates incidents may not be so unusual.

Details appeared in the July 10 edition of Cruise News Daily.
