Excellent time playing in the Bahamas. Princess Cays was great. Played in the Ocean, had a BBQ lunch. Laid out in the sun and RELAXED. Fun, fun, fun.

Beautiful beach area...lots of shade if you don't want to buy an overpriced clamshell. ($25) The water is clear and warm but has a lot of rocks about 3 feet into the Walter. Enjoyed the day and the nice picnic buffet. Thought the prices for snorkeling equipment and floats were very high. Bring your own snorkel equipment if you go!

Everything, from water toy rentals to private tiny colored cottages is first rate. Rent snorkel equipment, paddle boats, surfboards, stand-up paddle boards, clamshell shade covers, a colored cottage, and more. All nicely maintained and of course at a fairly steep extra charge. Abundant "free" food (included in your cruise deal just like onboard) includes beautiful fresh fruit of all kinds,... More

This beach is a great one to stop at if you want to sit and relax or do some snorkeling or other beach activities. I only gave it 3 stars b/c my husband and I really prefer to just get in the water and have fun in the waves. The section we were in (by the private cabanas) had only... More

Princess Cays was the last stop on our cruise journey. To be honest, I had little expectations and was more excited about the other ports, but the stop was definitely worthwhile! The beach was clean and scenic, and the snorkeling was better than many of our Caribbean destinations. The beachfront BBQ was also unexpected and supplied live music and a... More

Overall this was a relaxing day on the first day of cruise and much nicer than I thought. We rented the clam shelll whiich I hummed and hawed over, but in the end it was a good investment for the three of us fair skinned wonders. As others have said we brought our own cheap snorkel equipment which was a... More

They have a really nice beach here with plenty of room for everyone. You can rent about any water sport item as well as do any water sport. Bring your own snorkel equipment if you have it. They charge $25 for a mask, snorkel and flippers that probably cost $20 new. There is plenty of shopping too.

Although this was not the highlight of our trip, we had a wonderful time at the Princess Cays private beach. Yes, there are some rocks as you walk into the water, but you just have to enter the water closer to the tender port to avoid them. They aren't that bad. Once you are past the 3-4 foot rocky/mossy area,... More

I would say this is one of the two port of calls I like with Caribbean Princess Cruise (despite the terrible services on Caribbean Princess). Princess Cay has very nice white sandy beach and some perfect spots for snorkeling. You can bring some banana or bread to the shore and toss to the water to attract very colorful trpical fishes...

We have stopped here a couple of times on Princess cruises. A good spot for a beach day. Private all inclusive meals shared, buffet style. Casual. Great intro or ending to a cruise.
