When I booked my recent cruise, the ports were definitely not the biggest selling factor. Florida and the Bahamas were definitely not on my bucket list. I have to say, Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s Private Island) really surprised me. I’m not really a lay-on-the-beach kind of person; I’d much rather Go, See, and Do (thus, the name of this blog) but we rented a clam shell on the beach so I wouldn’t melt. It felt good to relax, read my book, and just enjoy being in paradise.
We also rented Stand Up Paddle-boards and that was a lot of fun. Although, I have to say it is much harder than it looks. It was nice to be out on the water, making the most of our time in the Bahamas. If this is something you would like to try, renting paddle-boards (or any other watersport) at Great Stirrup Cay is a great option. It was much cheaper than any of the excursions in the other ports.
