This was the worst excursion I have ever been on. It was the most expensive for this holiday! and not with much!! The tour guide was not well versed in tourists or people pleasing. she had a high screechy voice and she was determined we were gong to know everything she did by the end of our tour - not... More

We all had a great time at Princess Cays, the short boat trip over from the ship was quick and we had plenty of time to enjoy the beach. We rented cabanas and the floater chairs, the floater were a great way to hang out in the water and enjoy our drinks. We (my wife and two teenage sons) also... More

The Wild Orchids Water Restaurant is a great place for lunch with fantastic view, restaurant staff were great. Their beaches are inviting and the water beckons you.... More

We were scheduled to arrive at Princess Cays on the Caribbean Princess on Saturday 1/24. However on Thursday night we were advised that poor weather was expected there on Saturday so the captain had decided to increase our cruise speed and arrive on Friday. I'm not sure how the weather actually was there on Saturday but Friday was beautiful. We... More

I consider myself to be somewhat of a beach connoisseur, so believe me when I say that Princess Cays has an awesome beach! The sand was powdery, and the water clarity was unbelievable - the clearest, bluest water I've ever seen. Not sure the price of snorkeling gear rentals because my husband and I brought our own, but definitely make... More

Spent a beautiful sunny day at Princess Cays - a "private" Princess Beach in the beautiful Bahamas. You take a tender ashore and then you can do as much - or as little - as you want. Hundreds of beach lounges and plenty of room. Walk down the beach a little if you want a little more elbow room. We... More

beautiful beach with white sand and clear water you can not resist! Visitors can go swimming, kayaking, banana boating, paddle boating, skiing, snorkeling, parasailing, sailboating, or waverunning. There are also volleyball and basketball courts. Cabanas are available for daily rental. English is spoken and US currency is used.

Visited this twice on a Princess cruise. It is a lovely private beach that is a perfect way to begin or end a cruise. Princess takes care of their guests!

Many of Princess Cruise ships pop into their "private" cay for a day of sun and bachanalia. It's owned and operated by the cruise line, across a short causeway from the main road that traverses the Bahamian "out island" of Eleuthra. The sun is hot. The ocean is warm. The horizon is forever. Guests are tendered (i.e. taken via smaller... More

Princess Cay is your average private facility in most respects. Plenty of clam-shells (at $29 a bit pricey) and beach chairs although they are a bit more crowded together than at other cruise lines stops. Buffet is standard (about like a company picnic) with relatively few choices. If food is important eat on the ship. The downside is the HUGE... More
