Princess CaysSANTA CLARITA, Calif., February 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Princess Cays, an exclusive island destination for Princess Cruises guests, now offers the ultimate fun-in-the-sun experience with program enhancements, renovated areas and newly defined “surfing” with MedallionNet™ Wi-Fi, the only cruise industry private island to offer connectivity ashore.

Princess Cays was ranked among the “Top Cruise Line Private Island Destinations” by Cruise Critic for 2017. Located on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera in the outer Bahamas, Princess Cays has offered a beachside hideaway to guests since 1992. The beach is situated on approximately 40 acres, including more than a mile and a half of pristine, white-sand shoreline and is a featured call on Princess’ Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.


“For more than 25 years, Princess guests have lauded Princess Cays as one of their favorite spots on their Caribbean cruise,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “With new and improved island offerings and the addition of MedallionNet Wi-Fi ashore, guests enjoy a memorable beach experience and can easily share their adventures with friends and family back home or stream their favorite show or sports event while relaxing beachside.”

Additional Princess Cays enhancements include new shore excursions, refurbished retail and bar areas, shopping, landscape and infrastructure:

  • Shore Excursions – On February 17, we introduce our new Lagoon Clear-Bottom Kayaking Adventure, a guided paddle through the Island’s lagoon that allows guests to explore the flora and fauna of this unique habitat. In addition, Island Bicycle Adventure offers guests Princess Cays’ scenery and history with a leisurely bike ride to some of the town’s popular sites. Construction of a new “Davy Jones” water sports rental equipment provides snorkeling and water gear. And new Stingray Beach Encounter allows guests to feed, touch and hold live stingrays. Animal trainers teach guests interesting facts about the behavior of these animals as they reach out to touch their soft wings.
  • Princess Cays Shopping Princess guests enjoy adding meaningful mementos to their journey by visiting the new nautical-themed and “pick-a-pearl” jewelry section within the Bahama Treasure store.
  • New Marina Completion of the marina expansion, including new channel and turning basin depth accommodate larger tenders and smoother disembarkation and embarkation of guests, including a shaded security pre-clearance area.
  • Guest Experience Improvements Guests also enjoy a new information booth with shaded waiting lounge area and a new public announcement and music system; newly painted structures both inside and out with tropical pastel colors; guest services station for towel and water distributions at the Welcome Center; extensive landscaping of all guest areas, including additional planters and newly planted palm trees; and refitted beach bungalows.
