We've been on 2 snorkel trips in Tortola, one went to Norman Island and the other near Norman Island. We did these through Princess and they were great. One was on a catamaran and one was on a dive boat. We had a cab driver take us around the island (not through Princess) and he stopped at a beach that was northwest of the pier. It was really nice, but I don't remember the name of it. It was near the bar where Jimmy Buffet wrote Cheeseburger in Paradise. The driver only charged us $20 to take us around the island and it was well worth it. He took us to some tourist stops, but also to local spots. I'm sure if you ask a driver there, he'd take you to a nice beach for a reasonable price. The beach he took us to had some locals with coolers selling beers for a $1.00. Enjoy your cruise!
