Carnival adds Princess Cays to six itineraries

Carnival adds Princess Cays to six itineraries

Carnival Cruise Line will add the private Bahamian destination of Princess Cays to the itineraries of six different Carnival ships beginning in May 2017.

Located on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas and operated by Carnival’s sister company Princess Cruises, Princess Cays will be featured on the following Carnival itineraries in 2017:

  • Select seven-day cruises aboard Carnival Pride from Baltimore;
  • Five-day voyages aboard Carnival Ecstasy from Charleston;
  • Eight-day sailings on Carnival Conquest from Fort Lauderdale;
  • Five-day voyages on Carnival Elation from Jacksonville;
  • Four-day voyages aboard Carnival Liberty from Port Canaveral;
  • Four-day cruises aboard Carnival Sensation from Miami.

The facility includes a 40-acre complex highlighted by an observation tower offering panoramic views of the island, along with bars, restaurants and retail shops with local crafts, souvenirs and artwork. A complimentary barbeque lunch service featuring an array of delicious choices is also offered. Princess Cays is connected by a series of paved paths that lead to palm tree-dotted beaches where clamshells and private bungalows are available for rent. A variety of shore excursions – from dune buggy adventures and glass bottom boat tours to paddle boarding, windsurfing and kayaking – are also available.

Various operational enhancements, including the addition of larger, more efficient tenders to facilitate getting guests ashore quickly and comfortably, are currently underway.

Carnival Cruise Line ships are expected to make 40 calls to Princess Cays in 2017 and 98 the following year.
