Princess Cays
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
The beach is idyllic; beautiful white sand, blue ocean and palm trees blowing in the breeze but that's about it... We took advantage of the lovely, free and well organized BBQ and enjoyed the beauty of the area for a couple of hours and headed back to the ship. Snapped some of my prettiest pictures at this port.

Our excursion was canceled by the operator but we wouldn't have been able to make it anyway as we were 3 hours late getting into port. We experienced VERY rough seas and were quite sick for the trip between Princess Cay & this port. The port is easy to walk from the ship through Fort Rif (now a shopping plaza) across the floating bridge to Fort Amsterdam through the quaint streets of shops to the floating market and back.

I was most anxious to visit this port for it's European charms and beauty and was not disappointed. The old forts add a historical and mystical backdrop to the dutch influenced architecture and colors. The area was charming, warm, colorful and the locals very helpful. Instead of paying $40.00 for a "Motion Sickness Consultation" on board (gosh only knows what they'd charge for the actual meds) we ran into a local pharmacy were for $2.35 US purchased a Dutch motion sickness box of 30 tablets that worked great for the remainder of the trip. A productive and enriching stop...

We did not take an excursion, again we opted to walk around the port to see what the area had to offer. Shopping, Shopping and more shopping. The area is backed with stalls selling tee shirts, hats, bags, crafts and trinkets as well as malls with upscale shops. It was sunny and pretty but the area isn't particularly special unless you're there to shop.
