Caribbean Cruise, Part II

Back to the Caribbean. Our first stop was a private island owned by Princess Cruises called Princess Cays. It’s part of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, but looked like a tiny island from what we could see. We were ferried to the island in bright orange boats called “tenders.”

Our first view of the island. The little orange boat on the right is one of the tenders.

A closer look. It’s amazing how many people these things can hold.

Once we got to the island, I climbed up on a lookout and got a photo of the ship in the distance.

The cruise line served a barbecue and then we were free to hit the beach or just walk around. Since we can do the beach at home whenever we want, I took photos.

As you can see, the beach was pretty packed. The weather was perfect.

I got lucky with this sailboat.

The kayaks look like bananas, don’t they?

Since we were with the ship, we didn’t have to go through customs.

Later in the day, our friends were heading back to the ship, but I thought I spotted some nice colors in the distance, so took a walk and found these cool cabanas like the one I shot here.

Can you believe how well the paint color matches the sky?

Can you tell I loved the colors?

Wouldn’t have thought Atlanta was that close.

Another look at the ship and tenders. I still can’t believe how big our ship was.

Great weekend, everyone!

  2. I’m with you about the bright colors. They just make me smile.

    Every time I see a cruise ship, I’m amazed at how it stays afloat. I mean, how is that possible?!

  3. Love the vibrant colors!! I was just taken on a little vacation, thank you for sharing.

    A massive ship.
    I love those colors too. I guess they have to repaint regularly.
    Those kajaks I really thought thye were some giant fruit at first.

    You know, this looks really familiar. We went to a private island in the Bahamas when I was on a Royal Caribbean cruise many many years ago. Love the bright colors and I could use a few days on the beach to do nothing. Lovely shots.
