Beautiful scenery, but not much to do. If you're planning on getting into the water, make sure you're wearing water shoes. The coral and rocks will cut your feet up. The beach area was nice to relax on.

First of all - I LOVE PRINCESS CRUISES. This particular "excursion" requires you to hop on a shuttle boat to the island. Not the easiest transfer. The island is hot, loud and busy. There is a lot going on. I think you could do much...More

If you get bore on the ship, just get on the boat off to the island. There is a bit of que. You may have to compete for chairs too or you can pay your own. Beach is not good for swim. Lots of rocks...More
