As the first port on Royal Princess cruise, this island, owned & created by Princess, requires a tender boat into the port. Worth it just to stretch your legs, walk around and feel the breezes before boarding ship for next port of call. Nothing overwhelmingly different from what you expect from Princess cruise lines. Clean, safe, friendliness abounds.

Princess Cays was a first stop of the Royal Princess 2016/2017 New year cruise. I'd say it a nice relaxing place, with clean sandy beach, plenty of hammocks in the sun and in the shade. You can watch the fish from a platform above the see. There are some vendors with arts and crafts. Cold water and reasonable buffet was... More

We visited and spent half a day the Princess Cave during our cruise vacation with Princess Cruises, it was the first stop your itinerary. The organization for the tour was excellent, cruise staff did amazing job. The Island itself absolutely beautiful with friendly shore, white sand, and turquoise clear sea water, we spent there several hours and left the place... More

This place is just an extension of the ship, different surroundings and more ways to spend money. Not much of any beaches worth going to.

A tremendous variety of things to do on Princess Cays. You can take tours of the island, enjoy the sun and sand, fish, sail, lie in a hammock, etc. The ship puts on a very nice BBQ from about 11:30 to 1:30. A very nice way to relax. We have been there 3 times. Took tours twice and just enjoyed... More

Beautiful place to spend a relaxing day Princess Cruises own the Island so all the BBQ food is includes.The Tenders take you from the ship to the island which is fun! We have been here several times and always enjoyed it. it does get extremely hot though so take a cover up

Great beach for relaxing but pay for the umbrella as soon as you can. It rained while there but only about 10 minutes. Grab fresh coconut for $5 and don't forget to ask them to open it after you drink to get fresh coconut. I bought a great scarf /sarong for $15 right on the beach. Water is mid 70... More

We got exactly what we expected... Lots of sun and sand! Nice clean beach, plenty of seats for relaxing, lots of food, clear water for sporting around in and on. We rented a catamaran and spent most of our time enjoying the water. The food was very simple and generic but lots of it. Shopping can be done with your... More

The beach is beautiful. If you book the beach excursion with the paddle boat be sure that your legs are strong enough to handle the workout. It is not as easy as it looks😳. The guides had to tow me to shore😂😂😂.

The tender is a 30 minute nightmare. The island is totally fake, no local flavor, cookie cutter doll house looking cabanas. Decent chairs on the beach, I'm sure some may take in the faux "Caribbean" sights... if you're from the Midwest! I may have tried a paddle board, but didn't want to invest in any time there. It reminded me... More
