Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled details on its new oceanfront resort-style destination, Silver Cove, on its Bahamian private island Great Stirrup Cay.

The destination is undergoing a number of enhancements, elevating the offerings available across the 270-acre tropical oasis. 

During Norwegian Encore’s inaugural call to Great Stirrup Cay, guests discovered the new oceanfront lagoon area including private beach access, 38 beachfront villas, a Mandara Spa, a new Moet Bar and the Silver Cove Restaurant and Bar.

The Villas at Silver Cove were designed to provide guests with a similar experience to that available across the 17-ship Norwegian fleet. The 38 air-conditioned villas range from studios to larger one-and-two-bedroom villas, and they are equipped with a full bathroom, daybed, club chairs, TV with on-demand entertainment and outdoor patio and lounge seating. They also include access to a private beach and the Silver Cove Restaurant and Bar. 

Six lagoon one-bedroom villas include an expanded living area with a wet bar and a private king-bedded master bedroom. Two lagoon two-bedroom family suite villas also feature a private dining area, entertainment area and a larger master bedroom with a spa tub and shower.

“We were the very first in the industry to have a private island, Great Stirrup Cay, offering our guests a chance to enjoy the very best of an exclusive island experience,” said Norwegian Cruise Line President and CEO Andy Stuart. 

“Today, we are providing our guests with a preview of how Great Stirrup Cay is evolving and showcasing our vision for the future with the unveiling of Silver Cove, our exclusive beachfront area. Similar to the last few ships we have debuted, we are committed to elevating the Norwegian Cruise Line experience, not only at sea, but also ashore."

NCL's Stirrup Cay is home to over 1,500 feet of accessible beachfront; over 50 cabana and villa options; an array of shore excursions, including a new zipline experience that extends up to nearly 3,000 feet in length; and nearly a dozen food and beverage options.
