2. Want my fellow cruise mate teens good (or bad!) word on this place.

All I know it's in the Bahamas and because of this, my mom is talking about not even getting off the ship that day cause she has been there so much.

I remember seeing half moon cay when I went to great stirrup cay- thats NCL's private island. Half Moon is also ofter referred to as Little Stirrup Cay. GSC is very nice, its bigger, the waters are refreshing and the island is mainly flat and rocky at some points. You will need to tender ashore.

Also one thing to remember is that if there is somewhat rough/ windy weather, they may cancel the stop if it is unsafe to get the passengers ashore. Last March, my 4th time to great stirrup, the captain determined it was too windy so we had to un-anchor and leave. But 3 hours later we got to Nassau and ended up staying docked there for 2 nights so it wasn't too bad.

Hope you enjoy it!
