Weather was spectacular, sand felt amazing under my feet. Just don't forget your spf 100! Snorkeling was ok. Not a lot to see under there, but enough to make it interesting. Had a great time!

This was our second trip to this area, both times as a Princess Cruise stop. The area is beautiful, as is the beach. It is a bit of a pain to tender in and out to the island. We took an excursion, booked through Princess,...More

The cruise line brings over thousands people to the island. At the beginning there were too many people on the beach. After a shower took most people back to the ship, we could enjoy the "private" beach. Overall, princess cays is well maintained and worth...More

The island is beautiful, but the process of getting to and from the island took way too much time. We felt like we spent all day in line. The time in port was shorter than advertised - we may have been shortchanged because of the...More

this was the first time we got to actually stop at this island on a cruise. Carnival was the line, and we had to tender in to the island. For this reason alone I would not look at this itinerary again. It took forever to...More

Part of our Carnival Cruise. We spent the day here. We did not rent any of the things that were offered like cabanas, or canopies for our lounge chairs. Pleasant day at the beach but BRING WATER SHOES. Very rocky when you first enter the...More
