No Itineraries Impacted by Princess Cays Fire

Princess Cays

No itineraries will be impacted by a recent fire at Princess Cruises’ private island in Eleuthera, the Bahamas: Princess Cays, a spokesperson for the cruise line tells Travel Agent. The first call by a Princess vessel since the fire will take place as scheduled on February 4. 

A fire on January 28 damaged several operations buildings on the south side of the island, but no guest-facing facilities were impacted, except one of several available public restrooms, the cruise line said in its latest update. All guest facilities have been inspected, and reported safe and operational. In the staff-only operations areas, work is already underway to restore the affected buildings and equipment.

There were no guests at Princess Cays at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

Princess Cays has served as a private island destination for the cruise line since 1992. The cruise line recently completed a project to add its MedallionNet Wi-Fi infrastructure to the island, allowing guests to keep in touch with friends and family, as well as surf the internet. Last year the cruise line also introduced new shore excursions and retail and bar areas, as well as shops, landscaping and infrastructure. Also new that year was a Lagoon clear-bottom kayaking adventure, which takes guests on a guided paddle through the island’s lagoon, as well as a bike tour with Island Bicycle Adventures. 2018 also saw the cruise line add a new water sports equipment rental area, a Stingray Beach Encounter, and an expanded marina area that allows larger tenders to dock.
