NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE ADDS PARASAIL ADVENTURE TO
GREAT STIRRUP CAY DIVE-IN PROGRAM
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) announced it has added a Parasail
Adventure to its Dive-In program offered on the company's private
Bahamian Island, Great Stirrup Cay. Passengers can now sail above the pristine waters of the Bahamas either solo or in tandem while being towed by a brand new parasail boat on the beach of Great Stirrup Cay.
"Parasailing is a option many of our passengers have asked for in the
past and we're glad to be able to provide it to them now on our
private island," said Andy Stuart, senior vice president of marketing
and sales for Norwegian Cruise Line. "We're working with Big Adventure
Ltd, a company that has a great reputation and a long history of
offering sailing adventures in the Bahamas, to provide our passengers
the highest level of service possible."
Guests can sign up for this new shore excursion option at the Dive-In
desk onboard the ship. Currently, the ships that visit Great Stirrup
Cay include the S/S Norway and Norwegian Sea. Beginning in January,
NCL's newest ship Norwegian Dawn will sail to Great Stirrup Cay on its
eastern-bound sailings, and in May 2003, the ship calls at the Island
when she begins a groundbreaking series of seven-day sailings to the
Bahamas and Florida departing roundtrip from New York. Ports of call
on this innovative itinerary include Nassau, Great Stirrup Cay, Miami
and Port Canaveral, Florida, and guests have the additional option of
embarking either in New York or Port Canaveral.
In addition to offering the Parasail Adventure at Great Stirrup Cay,
NCL's Dive-In program will also now rent snorkel equipment to guests
that do not wish to participate on a structured snorkeling trip. The
snorkel gear is offered on all of NCL's ships at all ports of call
where an organized snorkel trip is scheduled.
