7 Private Islands You Can Visit on a Cruise

2. Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas

Who Sails There: Norwegian Cruise Line

Once a pirate hideout, this 250-acre island — popular for its stingray encounter and inflatable water slide — recently underwent major renovations. Here, you can choose from an array of shore excursions (think kayaking, snorkeling, and even swimming with pigs!). You'll also find six bars and restaurants (from tacos and tequila to burgers and beers). Large groups can rent private cabanas and enjoy sweeping ocean views, fresh fruit, bottled water, and other luxe amenities.
