Enjoyed the island. Disappointed we missed the swimming with pigs excursion, but because we had booked so late to cruise, we couldn’t secure the tour. There was enough todo on the island without any tour. My only advice is the actual food, drinks etc was disorganised. I’m not sure if it was because of the added corona virus pressure, the crew needed to communicate better with passengers about where bars were and where food was available as we noticed some venues were so over crowded, People were lining up for a long time, in the sun, tying to get served, and wait staff were absolutely overworked both at the bar and around the sun deck. We cut our trip to the island short as we couldn’t see the value in lining up to line up to pay taxes on beverages while in port, when we could be in the comfort of our stateroom and not having to deal with the crowds. A shame but I’m hoping this experience had more to do with managing the virus than the norm. Read Less

Only one pier, so if you're planning to tender, pray you're not the littler ship. There was a big ship docked, so we got cancelled because NCL can't figure it out after 40 years of owning this island. Very disappointing.

We did disembark and go to the island - YOU NEED to reserve your tender if you want off the boat before 2pm - They had issues with the tenders and even though were suppossed to be on a 10am we didnt get to the island until Noon - There was plenty of seats, chairs, food & drink - the water is very nice but the "snorkeling" was subpar - they are suppossed to have things set up that attract the fish we saw NOTHING Read Less

Just beautiful with crystal clear water. Bring foot protection as there are rocks as you get in the water

Beautiful private island owned by NCL (I think). The best part is that the alcohol and food packages carry over to this island, unlike others.

Excellent place decent bbq. Played volleyball. We loved the water and gentle waves. Excellent experience. Had to use tender because of dock damage. Great place. Drinks are excellent on the beach.

The island itself is lovely - IF you can ever get off the ship. NCL's tendering process is ridiculous. I've never seen such an unorganized mess in my life. It literally took hours to get off the ship and by that time there were no lounge chairs available. Then it took over an hour to get the tender back to the ship. Do yourself a favor and skip it. Royal Carribean's private island is right next to GSC. They have a dock so it's easy, peasy to get ashore. Is NCL trying to save money??? Read Less

Too crowded. Had to pay for an umbrella. Junk food for lunch. Not a great beach area. Take a lesson from Royal Caribbean’s island right next door.

The excursions were cancelled due to weather/water conditions. Market (cash only), food/drink available, lounge chairs, towels, a Starbucks cart, music, swings in the ocean and some good photo ops. Snorkeling gear, floaties, volleyball, and more. The tenders were nicely sized. Stayed a couple hours - it's good to check it out. Read Less
