GSC does not require much in supplies. Each ship visiting offloads the day’s food and drink when they arrive. We assumed that getting 1000 crew members to the island would speed cleaning up of debris, repair of any damage, raking sand, and resetting thousands of loungers.

So this thread had me curious of something since i misread the title. Do those who were stuck on Breakaway get extra loyalty points for their extra days at sea? LOL

That would be nice: I wonder how many people are aware NCL donated a million dollars to Bahamas to help clean up after Dorian and help the people re-build as well as supplying food, etc?.

We've skipped GSC both times we were supposed to stop there.  Never laid eyes on the place except through binoculars as we sailed right on by so i don't know how much damage could be done.  Isn't that where they were constructing a mega pool and lounge amenity only available to Haven passengers at an extra fee $$?  Regardless, without having to reprovision  the island and just offloading many things needed for the day, hopefully things were able to be tied down and secured before the storm passed.

The same with us except we have gone there a couple of times: generally it was too windy to tender in. This has also happened to us on RCI and HAL Actually on one HAL ship some people did get to the private island for a few minutes but had to com back to the ship. We were planning on going later in the day

I've heard that a lot and it's disappointing regardless of the line.  ,I wish the money spent on the new Haven area would have been put towards a pier.  Not to get into an old complaint, but you don't hear DCL missing Castaway nearly as much.

We are batting .500 on GSC; missed it the first past and had a great day the second try.    Once ashore, it is a very relaxing beach excursion with all the food and drink you would want.  We have a large cabana reserved for our November cruise and hoping for the best. 🤓

RCCL island next door is open, so  GSC should be OK.  We hope.

Coco Cay also has a new pier.  Wish they would do the same with "all the food and drink you could want" at Harvest Caye in Belize, what a joke that was!

We surely hope, sending thoughts & prayers ... natural disaster assistance are heading toward those northern Bahamas islands flatten & for all practical purposes, many parishes wiped out entirely.  Proud of the USCG to be among the first responders.

Basic & essential services hasn't been restored yet and telecommunications remained offline.

Just read this online.

 

As scheduled, the Norwegian Sky will call on Great Stirrup Cay beginning tomorrow. The private island is open and ready to receive guests.

Posted on FB and I read it too ... Kudo to NCL for the "Double Up"  - raising its pledge/commitment to help Bahamas restore & rebuild, from $1 million originally to now $2 million.
