Private Islands: Princess Cays
Princess Cruises

Located on the southern tip of Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas, Princess Cays is a 40-acre haven of serenity. Not quite an uninhabited island, nevertheless it offers a wide ribbon of beach, which is long enough for passengers to splash in the surf, relax in a hammock, or limbo to the beat of local music and never feel crowded. A children’s play area insures fun for kids and families. Three bars and live music compliment the authentic Bahamian barbeque on the beach. 

In a similar fashion to booking shore excursions, water sports equipment can be reserved ahead of time, either on board the ship or online through the Princess website. Also available to rent for parties of up to six persons are private bungalows. Nestled in picturesque palm groves near the beach, they feature air conditioning, ceiling fans, and a deck for lounging.

Permanent facilities include small shops that feature island crafts and trinkets, but if you head around the back and through the fence, independent vendors sell similar goods for lower prices. 

What to do there: Scuba dive, snorkel, kayak, parasail, sail, hike; ride paddleboats or water bikes; play basketball or volleyball; participate in organized games; shop
