Cruise with NCL . Beach was very nice. Bacardi Beach has the clam shells (rent from ship if you want one). Very rocky going in. Family beach before it is smoother going in. Plenty of restroom facilities. Bar available. Relaxing. Had to tether in. Would go again.

We had taken the norwegian sky cruise to nassau. On the third day of our cruise we had stopped on this private island.In the first hour we did swimming in the salty water and then had a good shower. Loved the complimentary breakfast. Activities were very good like snorkeling, swimming with stingrays etc. Beautiful beach and awesome benches and facilities.

The highlight of our cruise. Well organised, frequent tenders take you to this delightful island. The sea is the most gorgeous colour with white sands, palm trees, a slight breeze on our day there and plenty of sunshine. Well worth the cruise just to visit. Could have stayed forever.

This stop is the private island owned by the Nowegian Cruise Line. For our excursion, My sister Kathy (68) and I, chose the wave runner tour. We are both novices, but I wanted to do something out side the box. This was awesome ! The price was reasonable, wish we did it twice. They show you how to operate it... More

This place was so awesome. The water was so clear and temputure was perfect. Everything was free and the cruise ship brings a full buffet to the island. There was beautiful women there as well, in bikinis but I still would rate this 5 stars with out them, just an awesome place.

This was the highlight of my trip. Lounged on the beach which was peaceful. Clear blue water and white sand. Took a marine life tour, which was funny and exciting. Highly recommend taking this tour. Then made our way to look at the lighthouse. Must warn you, it's a little abandoned and the hike was longer than we thought it... More

This island is a Norwegian cruise line island. You arrive via tender boat, which Norwegian has done a great job of developing the tender boat area. My husband and I were at this island on March 26 2015. We noticed the quality of work that has been done to make this island a more resort type atmosphere. We really enjoyed... More

I didn't have high hopes for NCLs private island--but WOW was I impressed. This was the best, most beautiful Caribbean beach I have experienced yet (and I've been to lots!). We got there early (~9 or 10AM), so chairs were easy to find (free too!). There are hundreds (thousands, maybe?) of chairs, so even if you don't arrive early you'll... More
