Princess Cays
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
No food service and very limited bar service this day. Little to do unless paying for water toys.

Took water taxi to Water Island.Spent day at the beach swimming/snorkeling.Purchased beer and pop that were allowed back on board after discovering this when we asked the front desk staff though Princess did not advertise this.With beer on board $5.95-$6.95 per 12 oz bottle + 15% gratuity, we felt forced to drink mostly off ship until we found this out.

Few beaches here but the black sand beach (mero) was nice and had great time at Champagne reef.Shop around for cab/bus rates.

Our least favorite island of all cruises.Still upset by Natalie Holloway episode. Beaches seem dirty w/ so-so snorkeling. Took local bus (cheapest transportation) to beach area past resorts. Decent shopping at port.
