They say the third time is a charm...well, I'm here to tell you that isn't always the case. We did a 7 day Caribbean cruise in February when we got a really good deal on it. We figured it was a good way to determine if we'd be able to handle this 21 day Caribbean cruise which we already had booked. In February our first port of call was Princess Cays which is a tender port, meaning we have to anchor out in the water and take the lifeboats in to shore. It was canceled due to high winds. The first port of call on this 21 day cruise was Princess Cays. It was canceled due to high winds. The last port of call on this cruise was also Princess Cays. Yup, you guessed it, canceled...but this time I could actually understand it. The winds were up, the swells were high and the waves were rocking the ship. So I've never actually seen this Princess Cays place. The population there is 2, unless there's a ship in. Only the facility manager and one other person. Call me skeptical, no surprise there, right...but I'm starting to think this place called Princess Cays is nothing more than a billboard with a beach painted on it that you float by, but never visit. Not really...I know it's really just a cash cow for the cruise line. They nickel and dime you for everything. Heck, even to rent a pool noodle costs you $5. Kind of glad we missed it!
