Came in on a cruise. The beach was nice but packed with lots of people. They had a section of a nice beach that they would not let us swim or hang out in because they were launching water paddle boats, kayaks and float tubes....More
This isn’t one of the best places to get off the ship for an afternoon in the sun. There wasn’t anything unique about the place. There was hardly any staff onsite. The lunch buffet and the bar were shut down long before we expected without...More

We stopped at Princess Cays as part of a family cruise. Overall, we had 18 people in the group, which included five people from our family (three kids under the age of six). While the private island is relaxing and accommodating to the ship's passengers,...More
Just got back from the Xmas cruise and wanted to share our experience. We had been to many of the other cruise lines' "private islands" and so were looking forward to seeing Princess Cays. Like the other islands, we had to tender in, which is...More

The bicycling tour was not worth the $. They have you choose a bicycle and within 50 ft you make your first stop. After an explanation of tides, you ride your bicycle for another very short distance for the second stop. After learning about the...More
We went to this stop and took part in eh dune buggy tour. Unfortunately we had to tender on small boats to the island from the cruise ship, so that’s a lot of hassle and time. The beach is clean and nice. There’s not much...More

I agree. It's best to book your shore excursions with Carnival, either by calling them or by booking it right on their web site. I always do mine on their website, Depending on where you are going, Carnival has quite a few Snorkeling Shore Excursions. Prices vary depending on type of snorkeling you want to experience.

We always get off the boat as soon as it anchors and take the tender which is about a 10 minute ride. When you get off the boat, you are directed to the private beach area and once you pass what I call the trinket store, straight ahead you will see a colorful small building. Go there and you can purchase the folding cabana. They will take your sail & sign information and give you a ticket and send you to someone who will let you pick the seat you want.

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!!

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!
