This gate welcomes you to Great Stirrup Cay, the private island of the Norwegian Cruise Line. After purchasing the 250-acre islet in 1977, NCL invested over $30 million to transform it into a one-day paradise for their passengers. The cay is part of the Berry Islands, an archipelago of over 130 mostly uninhabited isles clustered across thirty miles in the Atlantic Ocean. Together they are called the Fish Bowl of the Bahamas. The island is located about 120 miles east of Fort Lauderdale.
