Princess Cruises has renovated its private island in the Caribbean. Princess Cays now offers the ultimate fun-in-the-sun experience with program enhancements, renovated areas and newly defined “surfing” with MedallionNet Wi-Fi, making it the only cruise industry private island to offer connectivity ashore.
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.
With new and improved island offerings and the addition of MedallionNet Wi-Fi ashore, guests are now able to 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 at the beach.
The enhancements includes some new shore excursions. The new Lagoon Clear-Bottom Kayaking Adventure, a guided paddle through the Island’s lagoon allows guests to explore the unique flora and fauna of Princess Cays. In addition the Island Bicycle Adventure offers guests Princess Cays’ scenery and history with a leisurely bike ride to some of the town’s popular sites. The new “Davy Jones” water sports rental equipment provides snorkeling and water gear and the new Stingray Beach Encounter allows guests to feed, touch and hold live stingrays.
Princess Cruises has also expanded the marina with a new channel and deeper turning basin to accommodate larger tenders and smoother disembarkation and embarkation of guests, including a shaded security pre-clearance area.
Guests can 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, new extensive landscaping of all guest areas, including additional planters and newly planted palm trees and refitted beach bungalows complete the Princess Cays renovations.
