Princess Cays
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
2 out of 5. Vast difference since we were there a few years ago. BBQ lunch was absolutely dreadful. Snorkeling was awful, with very little sea life. We were told that most of the coral is now dead due to swimmers' sunscreen. No coral = no fish. Many more of the "cabanas" now too detract from the island's natural beauty. Beach was clean.

3 out of 5. Would have most likely rated this higher, but we docked at 1 PM. Don't understand why Princess can't dock at 7 or 8 AM.

All beaches are public so you have to pay to use them.

It was Mardi Gras and all of the shops closed early.

4 out of 5.

We didn't take an excursion but instead went to Boca Catalina beach for snorkeling. According to the locals that's the best place, and it didn't disappoint. Abundant fish, coral...just beautiful. Crystal clear water. Took the public transportation bus back to the ship - $2.35 each. Nice and laid back.
