A 250-acre land mass in the Berry Island chain of the Bahamas owned by Norwegian Cruise Lines
(NCL) is undergoing a multi-million dollar two-phase renovation to improve its features.
NCL revealed at Cruise Shipping Miami that the privately-owned Great Stirrup Cay is being revamped with new amenities, including dining and bar facilities, several comfort stations and a band stand.
Making the announcement, Norwegian chief executive officer Kevin Sheehan explained that the company has one of the best private islands that is particularly suited for swimming and snorkeling.
"With these improvements, we can provide an even more enjoyable island experience for the more than 9,000 guests who visit Great Stirrup Cay weekly during the height of the season," he said.
"Highlights of the enhancements include an expanded beach front, exciting island excursions, additional dining facilities, private beachside cabanas and a new kid's area."
NCL also revealed this week that its state-of-the-art ship Norwegian Epic
will feature the largest spa at sea and a wide choice of free dining venues.
