For a minute you almost made me re-check my gps unit to make sure we were talking about the same location.
There is a great shot on Google Earth of Princess Cays. I can't tell which ship is there but the beach and buildings are fairly clear.

We were there the first week of April last year and the water was perfect. And I am a person who likes to swim in bath water.

Princess Cays is a lovely place. The sand has been imported and is so thick and cushy to walk on. You will spend a very quiet, pleasant beach day there with only other cruisers. I thought it would be boring but it is actually a pleasant change from the other ports where we tried to cover a lot of area and do as much as possible.

It is a very compact area with the swim area, snorkeling and Princess bbq all right there.
I think you will enjoy your day.

We were here in January of last year and the water and the snorkeling was great. The water was a lot warmer then when we where there in 2001. The reef is really pretty good with a lot of fish and not a lot of people snorkeling when we where they. The sand dose have a lot of rocks, so you might want to bring water shocks.

I am a wimp, and I do wear my wet suit at Princess Cays. I wear my wet suit everywhere in the Caribbean. If the water isn't 98+, I'm cold. There I've admitted it, I'm a wimp!
