You need your drivers license to go through the gate to the local shops. The folks are friendly, like to barter, and have varied merchandise. The food on the ship is much better than what they offer on the island. Prepackaged cheap hamburgers, lumpy potato salad, and overall poor food. Avoid the long lines and eat onboard before you go....

This a lovely beach and one gorgeous day on Princess Cays. We were dropped of by tender from a cruise ship. Since we live near a beach, this one is perhaps less crowded and a bit nicer, however, I would not make a special trip to this island just to try to improve on my tan.

We only stopped in at port at Princess Cays for the day while on an Eastern Caribbean cruise. I can't much about the island itself except that the beach was very nice. I spent nearly the whole day deep sea fishing on a cruise excursion. What a great time! I caught a Wahoo and 2 Mahi Mahi. If you like... More

We booked a tour of Leon Levy Native Plant Reserve(which was great to see and will be reviewed separately) via the ship. The tour van driver must be a frustrated Indy Race car driver as he drove at great speeds to and from Leon Levy. It would have been nice if he had slowed at scenic spots to allow us... More

A beautiful island has been transformed for cruisers into a Disney themed area. If you like music and want to be pampered by waiters on a beach full of sun beds then turn left when you dock. If like us you prefer the natural beauty of the island take a right and walk right to the end of the beach... More

We were only here for a short time because we spent the rest of the day on a tour with Lyle Brathwaite of Pineapple tours and cottages on an amazing tour of the island but we were able to squeeze in a short snorkel run when we got back. Loved that this beach had shopping, laying out, park for kids,... More

Interesting excursion. Guide pointed out historical sites, history. Elementary school children sang national anthem and a few more songs, welcoming us, very cute. Guide shared some of the native "lingo", for example; "Don't make me angry" is "Don't Yuck Up My Vexation!" Air conditioned bus, excellent young man as guide. Would recommend.

As a Princess Cruise Ruby member, we were disappointed by the day spent at Eleuthera. The beach was OK but nothing special and maybe it was meant to be a day on the beach where they could continue to overcharge on drinks and souvenirs - or maybe just to tick the box that they had stopped in the Bahamas. After... More

We decided, as part of our week long Florida trip, to embark on a quick 3 night Princess Cruise that came to Princess Cays as the only port of call so we could add Bahamas to the mix. Princess Cays is a typical cruise line island. They have a large buffet (complete with long lines and wait times) that was... More
