Princess Cays is a private beach owned by CCL that is used for cruises ship passengers. I've been there 3 times, always with Princess Cruises. It's the most similar thing to a Fantasy Island. The crew disembark and prepare the beach just for you. Two big BBQ'S are prepared.......delicious! Bars and other amenities are set so you can enjoy a... More

My husband and I just came off the Royal Princess cruise ship. Our last stop was a day at Princess Cays with a BBQ on the beach. It was a beautiful, hot, sunny day. The beach was loaded with blue chaise lounge chairs. There was some stores where we were able to purchase some last minute gift items and souvenirs.... More

We do not buy any cruise ship shore excursions anymore, but we do pay $29 to rent the Clamshell on Princess Cay. It is the blue fabric clamshell tent to provide shade over the lounge chairs. Usually, Princess Cay is the last island and by this time, we have gotten a little sunburn, so the shade is good. It has... More

What a stunning untouched island. White sand clear water loads of fish. Utter paradise. My favorite place on our Caribbean cruise.

Princess Cay is a great place to spend a relaxing beach day. We were there on a Caribbean Princess cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it. We did the snorkeling trip in the morning and spent the rest of the day on the beach. Everything clean, plenty of beach chairs and beautiful waters. On the south end of island.

Lovely day relaxing on the beach with a spectacular view of our Ruby Princess. Everything here though comes with a price tag, so be aware of this. If you want a cabana or shade...price. Float for the water...price. The drinks at the bar are not very good at all, was sadly disappointed and we had a drink card!! The BBQ... More

The beach was nice, and there were plenty of beach chairs for everyone. We planned to spend the day snorkeling, but conditions were not ideal. There was not much else to do, but the beach was still pretty and relaxing. Everything is run by Princess, so purchases on the island are easy as they are all just billed to your... More

We enjoyed our time on the island during the cruise. Each cruise lines' private islands are a bit different. Have been on some that are great and others that were not. This one ranks as one of the top islands. We had a cabana during our stay on the island, and enjoyed the experience including the VIP private dining. This... More

This island was our first stop on our 5 day Princess Cruise and we choose to snorkel all day. The water was beautifully clear and the sand glowingly white. If you are looking for a place to relax and do nothing, this is the place for you. I do have to say that most of the staff on the island... More

Sort of boring, not much to do. Service on the Island was poor at best. Food was ok but drinks were terrible, bar tenders were unorganized. No body around to take drink orders.
