Outdoor Activity
Head to Great Stirrup Cay, an island owned and managed by a cruise ship company. Offering an uninhabited tropical island experience, the island can only be visited by passengers on Norwegian Cruise Line trips. Relax on the unspoiled white sandy beaches, resting under the shade of the abundant coconut palms, before heading out into the water to explore the surrounding coral reefs. Home to lizards, gulls, and land crabs, the island offers great nature trails, as well as a welcome number of interesting cultural sites. Once a pirate hideout, the island was used by the United States Air Force during the war and still has a helipad in place, as well as a lighthouse dating back to 1863.

  • One of the most beautiful places we have been too. Was the last stop of our cruise and felt like it was the only time that we had to just sit and enjoy. No one pestering you like in the other ports.
  • This was our first stop. I was able to take a deep breath and feel I was really on vacation! The food prepared was fantastic and the people very nice.
