Beach and water beautiful. Staff ok. 2 ships in porr so beach chairs are a premium. Bring your own snorkel.

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

We got a clamshell to keep out of the sun part of the day and got 2 floats to get in the water and relax. The Bar B Que was nice, but plain. We enjoyed just relaxing on the beach for the day.

The island was beautiful but the staff was same as the boat. They all seemed annoyed and bothered by questions.

The tenders should have run more frequently. When leaving Great Stirrup Cay we sat on the tender until it was full, it was a long time and it was hot. There were two other tenders sitting there empty.

Was a nice place but nothing special. The food was very similar to what was on the ship which was disappointing.

Typical cruiseline-owned island, we only got off the ship for the free taco bar, which was just okay. I felt the vendors were over-priced ($18 for a magnet??).

We actually did not do anything on Great Stirrup Cay, just rode the tender back and forth several times. We are older and have done the beach and sand scene enough. Although we talked to several and they did enjoy themselves, but it was ... Read More

Some of the island is under construction. Lots new since my last visit. It is good to see NCL is updating and making changes.

We did get a clam shell for shade over our chairs. This is worth the money. It took over two hours for them to get us off the ship to the island. They also ran out of food and closed the bars early.
