Princess Cays
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Day 2 had us a Princess Cay. It's a beautiful island filled with many activities for couples, families, groups, young to old. The only complaint I have about this island is the fact your coke card doesn't work and I was told by the bartender it's because they don't have a computer system hooked up and everything had to be accounted for. Simple solution, write down I got a coke with my alcoholic beverage.

Day 4 was in St. Thomas. We docked pretty early and was able to get some shopping done. Don't worry about getting off the ship before 9am as nothing but the straw market is open. We booked the BOSS excursion which is where you ride an underwater scooter with an air helmet on. This has to be one of the best excursions I have taken in my last three visits to the island and I highly recommend it.

Day 5 was in St. Maarten. The wife and I took the $8 per person taxi ride over to the Sunset Beach Bar which is where the people hang onto the fence as the planes take off. If you haven't seen this in person, this is I highly recommend also. The Bar has food and drinks and if you stay near the beach, it could be a family event. We also went shopping downtown in Front Street. Word of advice, never let them take your credit card from your sight, even if they are only 20ft away behind their counter, When I checked my cc account, someone had used it for $575 at Computer World in St. Maarten. The only good thing about this is I used my credit card and not my debit card. ALWAYS use a credit card.
