A first-of-its-kind Bacardi Bar has opened on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Great Stirrup Cay private island in the Bahamas.
The bar debuted on Monday during Norwegian Pearl’s visit to the island.
“We are excited to announce the grand opening of the Bacardi Bar,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s chief executive officer, in a statement. “We are honored to partner with Bacardi for the launch of our island’s newest bar. Bacardi’s rich history and quality beverage products are the perfect complement to our private island experience. We know that our guests are going to love spending time here during their visit to Great Stirrup Cay.”
The bar will feature live events, DJs and interactive games, according to the company.
NCL’s Pearl, Breakaway and Sky ships will all visit the Bar during their upcoming cruises to the Bahamas.
“We have had a long, strong partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line I and am pleased that we were able to work together so closely to develop Great Stirrup Cay’s new Bacardi Bar,” said Zachary Sulkes, Bacardi Global Travel Retail Regional Manager. “It is partners like Norwegian that allow Bacardi to continue to bring added value to the cruise industry. Norwegian’s Private Island offered an opportunity for Bacardi and Norwegian to give guests a new and unique experience, and we believe Norwegian’s guests will agree when they visit the island.”
