Carnival Adds New Port to Bahamas Itineraries

From Cruise


The private Bahamian destination of Princess Cays has been added to the schedule for six different Carnival Cruise Line ships, beginning in May 2017.

Where is Princess Cays?

Located on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera, Princess Cays is operated by Carnival’s sister company Princess Cruises and features miles of unspoiled white-sand beaches and crystal clear water.  The facility includes a 40-acre complex with observation tower, along with restaurants, bars, and shops with local crafts, artwork, and souvenirs.

An Island-like Experience

A complimentary barbecue lunch for guests features an array of choices to suite anyone’s taste buds.  Princess Cays is connected by a series of paths that lead to beaches where clamshells and private bungalows are available for rent.  A variety of shore excursions are also available – dune buggy adventures, glass bottom boat tours, paddle boarding, windsurfing, and kayaking.

Princess Cays will be a stop for the following Carnival itineraries this year:

  select 7-day cruises aboard Carnival Pride from Baltimore 5-day voyages aboard Carnival Ecstasy from Charleston 8-day sailings on Carnival Conquest from Fort Lauderdale 5-day cruises aboard Carnival Liberty from Port Canaveral 4-day sailings on Carnival Sensation from Miami

Me, too!

Drop Nassau too.

Sounds like a great port.

Always love a private island stop!

Wish Galveston offered thisSad

I wonder if they will have to use the life boats as tenders like the Princess ships do? I don't imagine that Princess Cays has tenders.

I have been to Princess Cays numerous times in 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed it as a great beach / bbq stop. The use of tenders is necessary. I had friends who reserved bungalows and would say that they were not worth the extra cost. There are ample beach chairs available at no cost and the rental of water sport equipment is very reasonable. The "free buffet" begins with a great fruit assortment and later turns into a great BBQ.

Sounds great...thanks for the information.

Sounds good to me. I, too, enjoy the beach stops even though I live directly off a beach. I just love the aquamarine color of the water in the Caribbean. I don't think that I have been to this private island.
