Princess cays question

Recommended Posts

My wife and I are at grand turk right now and....my my...  this place is straight out of a dream.   

 

We want to take our kids on a cruise next year and thinking about where to go.   Seems like more cruises go to princess cays compared to grand turk.   How is princess cays?   Is it this beautiful? And has anyone gone snorkeling there?   We took a snorkel excursion here in grand turk and it was wonderful.    Also would like to find a dolphin swim.   Ocean world in amber cove was awesome.   Got to be pushed and pulled by dolphins in deep water.  

 

At first I was bummed we didnt get to go to bermuda...but we are having a blast

Yes it’s beautiful, not as beautiful as HMC.  The snorkeling is just ok nothing noteworthy (this was only from the shore we didn’t book an excursion).  Just like Grand Turk a perfect beach day.

Theosprey, where did you go snorkeling on Princess Cays ?  How do you book from the shore?  I am the only person from my party who wants to snorkel, so I don't want to book from the ship.  Thank you!  And also, if i can ask you another question, is there a beach or recommend destination you would suggest us to visit on that island?

It’s a private island own by Carnival (the corporation not the line), so you’ll have to book through the ship (or maybe on the island but we didn’t do an excursion). We just walked out into the water and swam around.  The further away from the peer the less crowded it is (it can get crowded).

Grand Turk is one of the best snorkeling locations in the Caribbean cruise market. I think you might be a little disappointed in snorkeling at Princess Cay. I can guarantee you that it won't be as good as Grand Turk.

So I just looked it up and Princess Cays is not a separate island.  It is part of the Eleuthera island.  I hope this helps.
