As part of our NCL cruise we stopped at Great Stirrup Cay. We rented a Cabana and were pleased to see it was stocked with water and fruit. We had a private waiter bringing us drinks. The beach was clean and the water a warm bright clear blue. This was our first time there but we are already looking to... More

As part of our cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway was a stop to this private island. We set anchor in the morning and then waited in seemingly endless lines to board the tenders that deposited us ashore on this very pretty island. The wait was exceptionally long because the conditions were shaky, with high waves and weather that forced the... More

We went in December shortly after Huricane Sandy and it had taken a tole but the island was still gorgeous. My husband had a great time playing a pickup game of volleyball on the beach. The lunch was nice and they water was warm. Most of the people stay on the main beach so if you walk a little ways... More

This was so far my favorite private island visited while sailing. Service was not great but atmosphere was phenomenal! Beautiful island and beautifully set up. Bars do not make great drinks, but the entertainment was great and the water was gorgeous. Only part of NCL Sky I enjoyed! Must do the Hippo Slude, adults and kids both!

The Norwegian Dawn spent a day in Great Stirrup Cay after having had to cancel plans to go to Bermuda because of the hurricane. Not much on Great Stirrup Cay unless you like to sit on the beach and swim. There's a few tee shirt etc. huts but everything else is pretty much what you get on the ship (food,... More

We rented a cabana for 200 dollars for 4 people, money very well spent, it was stocked with water and a platter of fresh fruit also chips and salsa and a cold frig. We bought a bunch of beer so we did not have to keep walking and standing in line at the bar, (bring a bottle opener) we had... More

The stingray encounter was the highlight of our 14 day Caribbean Cruise with MSC. The guides were very informative and the whole experience one we will always remember, especially my husband who is not a water person. Great Stirrup Cay is beautifully set out with heaps to do for every age for a day off the ship. Awesome way to... More

Recently we had the extreme pleasure of cruising the Norwegian Breakaway! Our second port was the incredibly lush and spectacular carribbean island of the GSC! Everything about this island and day was top notch! We enjoyed a picturesque tender ride to the island where we were greeted with a delicious buffet cruise lunch, my clamshell rental waiting for me, gorgeous... More
