Published

on

Princess Cruises’ private island destination Princess Cays has been renovated and is now ready for guests to return. The piece of paradise features program enhancements, renovated areas, and new MedallionNet wifi, the only cruise line private island to offer connectivity ashore.

Cruise Critic ranked Princess Cays among the top cruise line private islands last year, and guests love to soak up the sun in the Bahamas paradise. Located on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera, Princess Cays has offered a beachside hideaway to guests since 1992. The beach is situated on about 40 acres, including more than a mile and a half of white-sand shoreline. Both eastern and western Caribbean itineraries usually stop there.

Additional enhancements include:

The cheerleaders also took part in photo shoot in ports along the way, including St. Maarten, San Juan, and Nassau. During the voyage, the cheerleaders engaged with guests throughout the cruise during a variety of activities, including at the sail away party, hosting youth cheer clinics, posing for photo ops, and doing special performances to entertain guests. To kick off the cruise, they provided a warm Miami Dolphins welcome by taking over the terminal with mascot “TD” to cheer guests into their vacation.

The annual photoshoot onboard MSC Seaside came on the heels of the Dolphins’ first ever Fan Cruise onboard the same ship in March. The voyage included football legend guests of honor including Kim Bokamper, Terry Kirby, Sam Madison, Nat Moore, Joe Rose and Patrick Surtain, for a week of themed activities. The team will be hosting their second cruise in 2019.

The Miami Dolphins and MSC Cruises are in the midst of a three-year partnership, which resulted in the Fan Cruise. It will be hosted annually over the next three years.
