Cruises from Great Stirrup Cay
Great Stirrup Cay is a small island that is part of the Berry Islands in the Bahamas, about 90 km NNW of the capital Nassau. The narrow island stretches E-W in a 3km arc. (A smaller island to its west, Coco Cay, is a resort for Royal Caribbean guests.) Norwegian Cruise Line purchased the island from Belcher Oil Company in 1977 and developed it into the cruise industry’s first private island for their passengers. NCL ships anchor off-shore and visitors are tendered to the private retreat, an unspoiled paradise of powdery white sand and crystal clear waters, surrounded by a reef with abundant coral and fish in the waters of the peaceful cove.
