Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas Cruise Port

Feel the luxury of having your own private island on Great Stirrup Cay. This small island is actually Norwegian Cruise Line’s private island, and when their cruise ships stop here you and your shipmates are the only ones ashore. Here you will find a beautiful beach waiting for you, waters ready for your exploration and a barbecue ready for your lunch. The island has had a fascinating history too; it has served as a pirate hideout, a storage site during the Civil War, as the home of a US Air Force satellite tracking station and a base during WWII. Highlighted below are some of the best ways to spend your time in the Bahamas’ Great Stirrup Cay:

  • Rent a private cabana where you can have a quiet piece of beach all to yourself.
  • Let your speed demon soar on a wave runner rented on the island’s neighbor, Berry Island.
  • Forgot to get a great Caribbean souvenir at your other ports? Just because this is a private island doesn’t mean you can’t shop. Check out the local crafts at the Berried Treasures Bazaar.
  • Groove to the sounds of calypso at the Band Stand. This spot is where you can hear a live band play funky island rhythms.
