(12:15 p.m. EST) -- The Norwegian Edge refurbishment program has made landfall on the cruise line's private island, Great Stirrup Cay. As part of Norwegian Cruise Line's ongoing enhancements to the Bahamian port, the line unveiled Villas at Silver Cove November 19.

The 38 private, air-conditioned villas range in size from studios to one- and two-bedroom spaces. Each features a daybed, a TV with on-demand entertainment, armchairs, an outdoor patio with lounge seating, and a full bathroom.

Each of six lagoon one-bedroom villas includes an expanded living area with a wet bar and a private master bedroom with a king bed, and each of two lagoon two-bedroom family suite villas features a private dining area, an entertainment area and a larger master bedroom with a spa tub and shower.

Villas at Silver Cove include access to a private beach and the dedicated Silver Cove Restaurant and Bar.

"We were the very first in the industry to have a private island, Great Stirrup Cay, offering our guests a chance to enjoy the very best of an exclusive island experience," said Norwegian Cruise Line president and CEO Andy Stuart in a news release. "Today, we are providing our guests with a preview of how Great Stirrup Cay is evolving and showcasing our vision for the future with the unveiling of Silver Cove, our exclusive beachfront area."

In addition to the villas, Great Stirrup Cay is also showcasing a new oceanfront lagoon area, a new zipline experience that extends up to nearly 3,000 feet in length, a shoreside Mandara Spa and a Moet Bar so cruisers can unwind during their port day with a massage or a flute of Champagne. 

The new Silver Cove villas join more than 50 Great Stirrup Cay cabana and villa options, butted up against 1,500 feet of shoreline.
