MIAMI — Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled an exclusive oceanfront, resort-style destination on Great Stirrup Cay, its private island in The Bahamas.
Dubbed Silver Cove and launched as part of The Norwegian Edge enhancement program, the luxury beachfront area was unveiled during Norwegian Encore’s inaugural call to the island during which guests were able to enjoy private beach access, 38 beachfront villas, a Mandara Spa, and the new Moet Bar and Silver Cove Restaurant and Bar.
The Villas at Silver Cove were designed to provide guests with the same onboard experience they would have across Norwegian’s 17-ship fleet. The 38 air-conditioned villas range from studios to larger one- and two-bedroom villas, and come 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.
For the most discerning of guests, six lagoon one-bedroom villas impress with an expanded living area with a wet bar and a private king-bedded master bedroom, while two lagoon two-bedroom family suite villas come with a private dining area, entertainment area and a larger master bedroom with a spa tub and shower.
Noting how Norwegian Cruise Line was the first in the industry to have a private island, CEO Andy Stuart said: 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.”
In addition to Silver Cove, Great Stirrup Cay offers 1,500 feet of accessible beachfront, over 50 cabana and villa options, an array of shore excursions including a new zipline experience, and nearly a dozen food and beverage options ashore. It is currently undergoing a number of enhancements that will elevate the offerings available across its 270 acres.
