Norwegian Cruise Line is no stranger to innovative and exclusive travel experiences, as is evidenced by its array of renovations to the Norwegian Cruise Line private island, the Great Stirrup Cay. The upgrades include a new recreational area, a 1,000-foot zip line, and expanded dining options. Not only that, but exclusive access to a private lagoon retreat is also planned for the summer of 2017. The enclave will feature private villas complete with air conditioning.
The private island beach oasis, the Great Stirrup Cay, located in the Bahamas, has been a holding of the cruise line since 1977. Norwegian was the first cruise line to purchase a private island and, in turn, has made several substantial upgrades through the years.
