A Norwegian Escape

Norwegian Cruise Line's private island, Great Stirrup Cay, is the northernmost island in a chain known as The Berry Islands. It’s situated in an area along the Northwest Providence Channel. When sailing vessels gave way to steamships, shipping traffic increased through this channel. As a result, in 1863, the British Imperial Lighthouse Service erected the lighthouse on Great Stirrup Cay. Although it was manned for many years, it’s currently timed and solar-powered.

Norwegian Cruise Line is the first cruise line to offer an uninhabited tropical island experience exclusively for its passengers. Great Stirrup Cay is an unspoiled paradise of magnificent white sandy beaches, majestic coconut palms, and calm, pristine waters where an abundance of colorful marine life inhabits the surrounding coral reefs. She’s home to lizards, seagulls, neon-colored fish and a few very fortunate guests of NCL.

On Great Stirrup Cay, you can snooze in a hammock under a shady palm tree, learn to snorkel in a peaceful cove where tropical fish weave around equally colorful coral, dance the limbo and enjoy a beach-side barbecue. Or, circle the island in a kayak or sailboat.
