Princess Cruises has completed the enhancements to private Caribbean island, Princess Cays.

Situated at the southern end of the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas, Princess Cays already had 1.5 miles of shoreline, picnic and bar facilities, a lookout tower, a shopping marketplace and a supervised children’s play area, complete with a sand playground. Following the renovations, the 40-acre island now also offers refitted beach bungalows, extensively landscaped areas, and a new watersports rental area that provides snorkelling, swimming and diving equipment.

The island also features wi-fi connectivity onshore, making Princess Cays one of the first private islands to offer internet access. There is also a new marina, which will give guests more time ashore.

In addition, guests can now choose from three new shore excursions. These include a clear-floor kayak ride through the island’s lagoon; a bicycle ride to local notable sites including a market, the lagoon and remnants of the island's 19th-century salt industry; and a hosted ‘stingray beach encounter’, which allows guests to feed and hold live stingrays.

“By making these subtle changes we’re continuing to develop Princess Cays as the premium Caribbean hideaway,” said Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises' vice president in UK and Europe. “Its powder-white sand and crystal-clear seas make it the ultimate place to relax, unwind and enjoy yourself.”

Princess Cruises is offering a 14-night ‘Circle Caribbean’ sailing roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Caribbean Princess. The ship will depart on 28 October and call at Princess Cays, St Thomas, Antigua, St Kitts, Martinique, Barbados, Trinidad, Curacao and Aruba.
