SANTA CLARITA — Princess Cruises’ exclusive island destination, Princess Cays, has gotten an upgrade, complete with a new marina, more shore excursions and MedallionNet Wi-Fi, making it the only cruise industry private island to offer connectivity ashore.
Ranked among the ‘Top Cruise Line Private Island Destinations’ by Cruise Critic for 2017, the island is located on the southern tip of Eleuthera in the outer Bahamas and has been welcoming guests since 1992. It’s situated on approximately 40 acres and is a featured call on Princess’ Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
“For more than 25 years, Princess guests have lauded Princess Cays as one of their favourite spots on their Caribbean cruise,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “With new and improved island offerings and the addition of MedallionNet Wi-Fi ashore, guests enjoy a memorable beach experience and can easily share their adventures with friends and family back home, or stream their favourite show or sports event while relaxing beachside.”
Additional enhancements include:
Shore excursions: A new ‘Lagoon Clear-Bottom Kayaking Adventure’ was introduced on Feb. 17 as a guided paddle through the island’s lagoon. Plus, the new ‘Stingray Beach Encounter’ allows guests to feed, touch and hold live stingrays.
Shopping: Guests can visit the new nautical-themed and ‘pick-a-pearl’ jewelry section within the Bahama Treasure store.
Marina: The newly completed marina expansion includes a new channel and turning basin depth, which can accommodate larger tenders and smoother disembarkation and embarkation of guests.
Guest experience: There’s a new information booth with shaded waiting lounge area, as well as a new public announcement and music system. Extensive landscaping has been done in all guest areas, including newly planted palm trees.
