Upon arrival, the group will be greeted by the Ministry of Tourism, board a private bus and enjoy a day of cultural delights including a traditional Bahamian breakfast and island tour. Following the tour, attendees will convene at Señor Frog's where they can enjoy the casual vibe of the popular tourist spot and complimentary WiFi to update their social media “followers” on the activities of the day.
On Norwegian’s private island, Great Stirrup Cay, the group will have the chance to experience the island’s new enhancements including new private cabanas, a snorkel trail, stingray encounter, paddle boarding and much more.
