This island is actually big. Me and my husband have been there 4 times with Norwegian and MSC cruise lines and we love it (we met in the Norwegian Sky a few years ago). We explored the whole island and they have great spots to relax and enjoy a romantic day. We also met some great people who work there... More

Great Stirrup Cay was the third and final stop on our cruise on NCL Sky. Had to wait 40 minutes for a tender from ship to island. The island itself isn't bad but there is not enough shade. They have about 400 lounge chairs set up throughout island almost all of them in the sun. You can rent a small... More

We recently visited this island as part of the Norwegian Sky trip. The Sky offers all-inclusive drinks on board the ship as well as Great Stirrup Cay. The island was amazing and I highly getting there really early to get a chair under a palm tree, or pay the $30 for a clam. The all-inclusive drinks were terrible here. I... More

We did an excursion, which was the snorkeling and sand bar - it was awesome. The guy in charge is Jeremy. Really nice guy. Gave you good instruction for first timers. The... More

Norwegian cruise lines private island. Was the best stop on the cruise. I wish we could have stayed longer. The nicest beach I have ever been on. The island and water is beautiful. Staff on the island keep it very nice. I can't wait to go back

A beautiful tropical island! NCL's private island is an open invitation for relaxation! The food was great, perfect island fare. Opportunities to explore, swim, snorkel, float or do nothing!

Love Great Stirrup Cay!!! The freestyle snorkeling right from the beach was amazing. I went on NCL Sky just for the Great Stirrup. Excited to see the changed NCL will make to the island for 2017. Definitely going again! They do BBQ on the beach and there is a bar where the drinks are included in the price of the... More
