Default Improvements on Great Stirrup Cay?

Anyone who has been to GSC since December 2012 indicate whether the "improvements" such as the lazy river are completed yet?

Was there in March 2012 and were not done yet.

There is no lazy river in the plans for Great Stirrup Cay. According to Andy Stuart from NCL - there never was plans for a "Lazy River". This was confirmed a few months ago during one of NCL Webinars.

We stayed at the main beach and spent most of the day snorkeling so didn’t see too much but what we did see is shown at this link.


They are doing a lot of construction around the tender lagoon.

I was just there a few weeks ago. The stingrays were gone. I don't know what happened.

When I was there in October the rays were still there but the activity with them ended up being cancelled.
