We took the short tender trip from the Royal Princess to the island. Kitchen staff from the ship set everything up on the island for lunch which was good.
Our cruise was during the week long thanksgiving holiday so the ship & the island was...More
This 14 day cruise was the best of several cruises i’ve been on. The first stop at Princess Cays was a blast. Perfect weather, great beach, lots of friends and good food. Everyone should experience a trip on Caribbean Princess.
My first time at a small private Caribbean Beach. This is NOT a resort. We reached it as a Port of Call on a Carnival cruise. If you like laying in the sun, swimming in the ocean, or just taking relaxing walks along the beach...More
Clean, well laid out, we got one of the sanctuary bungalows, curtesy cart ride is available. Bungalow was nice, with a cooling system if the heat got to you, direct access to the water... note: no lifeguard at the private bungalows so keep an eye...More
Went to Princess Cays with Carnival Cruise Line. First visit to the island. Rented a clam shell, rented water chairs.....both were a must! Only negative was the rocks/pebbles just as you walked into the water. Didn't use swim shoes but didn't have any cuts or...More
The staff on this island were very friendly. Everything was a long walk from the tender port. The picnic was average and the shelters were crowded and finding a place to eat was difficult. The island was pretty though.
We went here unexpectedly due to Carnival changing the itenerary at the last minute... this was the best part of our trip, and the next cruise I book will include a private island!! The weather was gloomy and it rained on us throughout the day,...More
This stop is great if you're on a cruise that includes this beach on the itinerary. Our shipped anchored out in the ocean and we took a tender to the beach. The tender operated every 15 minutes. The beach is clean and you can see...More

Totally up to you, I am sure that would be a great experience but when you get to the island you can venture where ever you want and snorkel where you want. We did a lot of snorkeling on the island, it was ok. Didn't see as much but there were some great places outside of the general swim area. We took our own full fask masks and renting the fins. Was a beautiful island however do not leave your valuables out when you venture off because they will venture off as well

Princess Cays is a private beach compound operated by the cruise line. Most folks on this forum have never been inside the fence there. You might have better luck getting answers on the Princess Cays forum.
Eastern Caribbean cruise need recommendations for exursions! (0 Replies)
Has anyone gone on excursions offered by cruise lines (Princess or other line) for stops in: Princess Cays, St Maarten, St. Thomas, Grand Turk. Boyfriend who can't swim so snorkling and water sports are out! Land tours of historic places, shopping, beaches, tasting local cuisine and beverages are all welcome! Can you rent bikes or mopends and get around? We want to experience culture! Thanks!!

Best way to spend day during Cruise stop (3 Replies)
We are stopping at Princess Cays on a cruise. We will be there from 8 am - 5 pm and would love to see more of the local culture than the resort beach. Any advice on a local (non tourist trap) restaurant for lunch plus any must see sights would be greatly appreciated!
