master list of getting on Great Stirrup Cay or not

Recommended Posts

we missed this on christmas and a lot of groaning going on. So i thought it would be fun to get a historical perspective of if you made it or not.  

ideally post date you were to be on GSC, ship, and if you made it or not. as you cannot edit the 1st post, ill be summarizing in a post every once in a while to do calculations. 

 

12/25/19 Bliss NO

We were 6 for 6 and had a great streak of never missing up until a few years ago. We have missed it now the last four times in a row.

1 for 2.  Our 3 cruise hit Harvest Caye (we'll stay on the boat if we are back there)

5 for 6 made it to GSC.

 

April 3, 2019 Escape missed (broke the streak) - went to Nassau early and stayed overnight to our scheduled call there.

5 different ships, 6 successful tender out of 10 scheduled ... over a span of 20 year, Spring, Fall & Winter.  Regardless, IMHO, stats itself are meaningless and useless.  

 

Don't forget to keep track of wind speed/direction on those failed ones - see if it can validate the bad ones are due to the north wind at/near the Berry Islands.

When we missed it with MKing we went slowly to Nassau for 6 pm arrival. This past year some who missed got in early afternoon.

You know how many times we have been on NCL cruises. Made it to GSC only once while it was being renovated/reconstructed....I think in 2011 on the Jewel.

Will we make it on the Bliss in January? You will know before me and post if you are following the ship.😁 I am not even bothering to get up early and wait by the tender doors...LOL!
