A Bahamas Cruise to Great Stirrup Cay

If you’re cruising to the Bahamas in 2017 and you see Great Stirrup Cay on your itinerary, get excited. As Norwegian's private island, 250-acres of pristine beach is all yours. If that wasn't enough, Great Stirrup cay will undergo millions of dollars worth of enhancements to give guests a more luxurious experience.

Zip line 1,000 ft. over the island and the sea. Dive below to find a snorkel trail in a mystic sculpture garden. Play in the new entertainment and activity complex featuring live music, games, basketball and volleyball courts! When you're hungry, grab a bite to eat at Abaco Taco, where you can create your own taco masterpiece. Or head to Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville at Sea, for a Cheeseburger in Paradise. And when you've exhausted yourself from a day full of activities, recharge at the Exclusive Lagoon Retreat complete with Mandara Spa treatments, a secluded beach, an ocean view restaurant and private villas!
