There are renovations underway as of January 2017 but they did not affect our stay in any manor. If you have a chance to book one of the Cabanas during your stay and you have any size of group do it. It is worth the extra money to have a hangout area and not fight to get chairs together on... More

The island is beautiful which is most important. The water is gorgeous and clear. The food was blah. The drinks were PRICEY. the activities were non existant unless you paid a fortune. Nothing was included except the food. Which wasn't very good. Especially if you're gluten and dairy free. However the saving grace was. .. Jet skis!!! This excursion, though... More

Current visit totally changed my impression of Norwegian. Many friends sail NCL had bad feedback, most of them are experienced stomach flu. It was the least choice to select Norwegian Cruise Line until Christmas break last year. The cruise is nice and clean, people working on the cruise are nice and polite, the only thing I am not quite enjoy... More

It's a small island with activities and beach owned by NCL. It's very lackluster essentially they brought us to a beach. There was nothing super exciting, the water was cloudy, not good for snorkeling and you had to wear protective footwear in the water because the bottom was covered in huge boulders and smaller sharp rocks, very unpleasant. 2 hours...

I've been to several of the cruise line owned islands now, and this one has its ups and downs. It was a nice day in the end. The upsides for this island were: That there were enough bars, drinks are excellent, and most importantly NCL unimited drinks package works on island ! (not the case for Carnival's island). As might... More

We really enjoyed this private resort exclusive to NCL passengers only. Some may not like that the beaches get crowded but you forget you are sharing it with everyone aboard NCL so it's actually not bad. There are plenty of spaces and you are not restricted to just one area. Norwegian Sky is all inclusive drink package so all our... More

We were on the Norwegian Sky All Inclusive Cruise. We loved the island. It was fun to walk around, but the water was best! We ended up getting a small cabana. It wasn't cheap...$299, but it could hold up to 6 people. It came with bottled water for all, floaties, table, sofa, lounger, ceiling fan, and someone to bring you... More

Not a great cruise stop. Took forever to tender in off ship. No one knew where to get water and pointed in the wrong direction. Condiments for lunch were out in the sun for hours. The beach has terrible snorkelling with mostly sand grass blowing around underwater.

It was a relaxing day at the beach. Each person will have their own interpretation but for us, this was a great way to get a tan, relax, and enjoy the day without spending money.

We were lucky enough to be 1 of the 1st tenders off, worked out great because we were able to get a great spot, we brought our own gear & did some snorkeling if you get away from the beach you will see some fish around structures in the water. After a couple hours the 1st beach got crowded so... More
