Great Stirrup Cay is Norwegian’s private island, which was inhabited by Native Americans, pirates, the Spanish and American armies. NCL was the first cruise line in the industry to offer its passengers access to a private Caribbean island. NCL acquired the one-square-kilometre island, 130 nautical miles off the Florida coast, from the Belcher Oil Company in 1977.
Enjoy a day of relaxation and activities on the sandy beaches. A buffet is located on the island and includes a pizza station, BBQ dishes, hot and cold food stations, as well as fresh fruit and bread.
Several improvements have been made over the years to infrastructure that include a welcome pavilion, bars, private beach cabins, a children’s playground, a flea market, a water park and four beaches and a sand lagoon.
The beaches and the sandy lagoon at the end of the island are much quieter than the main beach near the services.
If you have an alcohol package, it is valid in the bars of the island.
The ship’s card is accepted for tour payments and in bars, but the money is needed at the flea market (USD).
