So admittedly I am not the first to say "let's go to the beach", so the idea of spending the day there wasn't at the top of my list. My wife likes to go and since we were on our second cruise with Norwegian and since it was the Bahamas I figured why not make the most of it. The... More

We stopped here on our MSC cruise. The island is amazing! I would recommend wearing water shoes as there are many rocks as you walk into the water. We didn't do the snorkelling excursion offered on the boat, we brought our own snorkelling equipment. My kids went over to the area the snorkelling excursion was and swam with them. They... More

I went to Stirrup Cay via Norwegian Sky. Visited here on the final full day of our cruise. For us, it is the highlight of our trip! Last time we visited was 2011 and they have made lots of improvement since then. The beach was beautiful and snorkeling was great even for a beginner. The there is a shallow rocky... More

Great Stirrup Cay is a beautiful little island. The odd part is that when we left the cruise ship it was so windy and the tender boat was really being thrown around. Later when we did the eco boat and the sting ray encounter, it was perfectly calm.

This was our last stop on our 4 night cruise on the Norwegian Skye. It was such a great way to end our trip. We snorkeled and saw lots of colorful fish and walked all over the island. We did walk down to the light house. I wish I had been brave enough to snorkel over there. The wasted was... More

We visited this island on the 4 day cruise aboard the Norweigian Sky cruise ship. It was a wonderful place and the weather was great but the time way too short and only one day. I think the ship should spend two days here and skip the stop in Freeport.

I went to Stirrup Cay via Norwegian Sky. It was a beautiful beach. I wish we had been told we could not bring shells back on the ship, I spent considerable time digging up some pretty ones only to have them taken away when I went through the security check getting back on the ship. The water was cold, but... More
