Beach was nice but the best part was the snorkeling. Amazing number of fish in the rocky areas just off shore. There are relatively shallow sections in the water just off the beach where the sand changes to rocky zones and these zones have an...More

Norwegian Cruises really put our vacation over the top by having a day at Great Stirrup Cay with the beach and all inclusive drinks and a beautiful white sand beach. Loved relaxing with drinks and the sun.

Awesome island! I LOVE how secluded it was and that only ppl from the cruise were on the island! The only thing disappointing was the snorkelling - the underwater garden is not like how it is portrayed online and there weren’t many fish. There were...More

We had one day here as a stop on our Norwegian cruise. The weather was fantastic, the beach was beautiful and the food, music and drinks were great as well. Only one problem, we only had one day here.

We stopped here for the day as part of our Cuba cruise on the Norwegian Sky. The private island is beautiful! We enjoyed food and drinks, basking in the sun, snorkeling, and even a little shopping. Nice, relaxing day with no complaints.

Visited for a day as part of a Caribbean cruise. Nature provides the calm light blue waters and palm trees, which are planted to line the walkways, and grouped together in some areas if you wanna rest in the shade. There’s tons of comfy brand...More

Great Stirrup Cay is certainly a wonderful retreat to swim in the ocean and catch some rays. An easy tender ride that holds many people makes this outing very easy. The beach is very large with many chairs. Food can drink can be bought at...More

Yes I was a little disappointed in the fish we could see, but it was still worth it just to be in the water. Be sure to ask where the best spots are. It cost something like 40 dollars per set? At times there was a line for... More

I can not answer about the price of the wave-runner as we didn’t use them. The water is very clear and of good temperature.
