Princess Cays is a private beach resort located on the
island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. The island itself is
100 miles long but only two miles wide.
As the name indicates, the resort was developed by
Princess Cruises and has been used by that line since
1992. The resort is a stop on the itineraries of not only
Princess cruise ships but also of ships of affiliated lines
such as Cunard.
A number of structures have been built on the island
and linked by paved walkways. These include
information and equipment rental kiosks, shops, several
bars, and dining facilities for lunch. The bars and the
dining areas have roofs but are open on the sides,
affording the passengers views of the beach and the sea.
Interestingly, all of the cooking at the resort is done by
the ship’s staff. While there are cooking facilities on
the island, chefs, food, and supplies have to be tendered
in from the ship and tendered back again at the end of
Ships calling at Princess Cays typically offer excursions
such as deep sea fishing and glass bottom boat cruises.
In addition, guests can rent snorkeling equipment, sail
boats, floats, sea boards, aqua bikes, paddle wheelers,
