LOVED this beach! What a perfect day to go...we went back in November 2014 as part of the Norwegian Sky cruise from Miami. I had the best time going snorkeling and eating lunch right there on the island; we also bought a coconut drink for $18; not too shabby because you get both a drink and a souvenir (it's actually...

Recently took a Bahama cruise that stopped in 3 ports and Great Stirrup Cay - NCL's private island - was by far the best port of the 3. Granted there are only a few things to do but since this was my first time in the Bahama's the experience was awesome. Loved the beach, swimming off cabana beach was far... More

NCL's private island makes for a great beach day. We were on the first tender so the island was nice and empty when we arrived. There are some small huts that sell souvenirs. All the huts have the same items and the prices vary. One hut had an ashtray for $20 and another hut had the same thing for $8.... More

Very nice spot to enjoy the beach and get a tan, if the weather cooperates. Make sure you bring plenty of sun block because the sun is very intense. The beaches are clean and well kept. Staff was well informed, the drinks were great and the activities were a plenty. We rented one of those big round flotation devices and... More

My fiancé (travel buddy) and I just recently completed an 8-Day Bahamas cruise aboard the Norwegian Gem. We spent the day at Great Stirrup...after two days at sea and a stop at Port Canaveral. We were undecided about cabana or clamshell rentals. Once onboard we decided on a clamshell rental for $29 per person. I highly recommend it for guaranteed... More

Great Stirrup Cay is truly a beautiful island with great white sand beaches and azure blue sea. Well up-kept by it's owner (NCL cruise line). Lots of things to do, good bars on the island. Lovely and very clean.

Stopped here for the day as part of an NCL weekend cruise. Not being natural "cruise" and "crowd" people, my husband and I caught the little tram and took it all the way to its final stop (#4) - the lagoon. To say that the first view of the white sand and turquoise waters is breath-taking would not be an... More
