Great Stirrup Cay will undergo a $20-million enhancement.
Norwegian Cruise Line plans to make major enhancements to its private island, Great Stirrup Cay, located 120 miles east of Ft. Lauderdale, a popular area for incentive travel groups.
According to Norwegian Cruise Line’s plan, the 250-acre island will undergo a two-phase renovation, totalling more than $20-million.
Already underway, the first phase includes the excavation and formation of a new entrance channel for tenders, marina basin and arrival area, with welcome pavilion, that will be the site for new tender landings and docks.
Once this is complete, the island’s current beachfront will be expanded significantly to accommodate more guests.
The second phase calls for new dining and bar facilities; cruise programme activity area; private beachfront cabanas; and beach volleyball courts.
The enhancement is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2011.
