Princess Cays
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We spent a wonderful, hot, sunny day on the beach. We walked to the left after disembarking, almost all the way to the end of the walk. We sat on 2 lovely chairs under a palm tree. I snorkeled from the shore and saw a nice variety of fish. I was pleasantly surprised by the good grilled fish and delicious fresh fruit on the lunch buffet.

We docked in Curacao around 12:30 and were in the first group off the ship. We shared a taxi with another couple to Blue Bay Resort for $10 per person plus tip. It has a fairly nice beach, a family resort, with nice palapas and great snorkeling from shore. When we returned to the port, we stopped at a nearby Starbucks to use the free wifi.

We walked off the ship, through the pier, and across the street to the public bus terminal. We took the public bus for $2.30 per person (one-way), passed Eagle Beach, and got off at Palm Beach. We got off just past the RIU resort. The beach is free, but the chairs and umbrella were $35. The sand is nice, and the water is calm and turquoise. It did get crowded as the day went on. We got lunch from one of the restaurants, nothing special. We took the public bus back to port around 1:00.
