Norwegian Cruise Line Unveils "Cabanas on the Cay" On Great Stirrup Cay

Miami   -    May 30, 2012   ---   

Norwegian Cruise Line announced today that "Cabanas on the Cay," exclusive private cabanas with VIP service and amenities, are now available on Great Stirrup Cay, the line's 250-acre private island in the Bahamas. The launch of "Cabanas on the Cay" marks another significant addition to the island as part of the $25 million dollar enhancement project.

 

Located to the west of the island's main beach, these perfectly-appointed private Cabanas boast exclusive service and amenities to provide guests with the ultimate island escape and total relaxation. Available for $249 per day, each Cabana accommodates up to six guests and is fully furnished with lounge chairs, tables, cooler, beach towels and a shower. Cabana rental also includes a $50 food and beverage credit; and one large float, a $25 value; for guests to enjoy during their time on the island.

 

Guests who reserve one of the 10 "Cabanas on the Cay" will enjoy priority tender service to the island and, upon arrival to their private cabana, will receive six complimentary bottles of water and a refreshing fruit basket. As they relax on one of the comfortable lounge chairs, guests will have the opportunity to use their $50 food and beverage credit towards pre-ordered "Cabanas on the Cay" food and beverage selections.

 

Norwegian has prepared an exclusive menu for Cabana guests consisting of delicious seafood, charcuterie, sushi and fruit platters. Guests who choose to dine at the Island's BBQ can use their credit towards one of the many beverage packages available exclusively for Cabana guests, or towards other beverage purchases on the island.

 

Each of the 10 Cabanas on the Cay are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and can be pre-booked as a shore excursion on ncl.com or through the Shore Excursion Desk on board.

 

Norwegian was the first cruise line to offer an uninhabited tropical island experience exclusively for its guests. Great Stirrup Cay offers magnificent white sand beaches, majestic palms and calm, pristine waters where an abundance of colorful marine life inhabits the surrounding coral reefs. Activities on the island include snorkeling; Waverunner® tour; eco boat tour; kayaking; parasailing; shopping at the straw market; and more.

Beginning in October, Norwegian Jewel will also stop at Great Stirrup Cay on her seven-day Bahamas & Florida cruises from New York.
