Default Question about Great Stirrup Cay

Is it true that they lost their protective cove netting during the hurricane's last year and have yet to replace it?

I ask because we saw a HUGE shark (could very easily been a great white) off the ship while we were anchored at GSC and if the cove is not protected, I'm not snorkeling! : )

I think you may have to call NCL and ask that question or wait til you get on board. Snorkeling was great in April, but I really paid no attention. NMNita :o

I know! I was there in March and they told us on the ship that they lost the netting during the hurricanes and have yet to put it back up.

After seeing that shark, I am so not going far out in the water! Call me a chicken - I don't care!

Holy Cow, I wouldn't go anywhere near the water; I wonder about HALs private island? Actually I did go in the water when we were at GSC in April, I didn't snorkel but did wade around; there were fish everywhere.

My daughter, who lives in Orlando area says she doesn't want anything to do with the Atlantic side period this year. They are about to take off for a couple of days of beaching: either they will stay at a resort and only use the pool or they are haeding for the Gulf side.

better to be called a chicken than taste like one!
