Princess Cays Back Open!

The private resort in the Bahamas which is owned by Princess Cruises and its parent company Carnival is now back open to cruises. A large fire broke out on January 28 at around 11:00 PM and at first, it seemed the resort had been devastated. Thankfully there were no injuries and no guests at the private destination at the time.

We now know new details about the damage and Princess Cruises stated that no guest facilities were damaged by the fire apart from one of the many public restrooms. The cruise line has inspected all the buildings and everything is safe.

This means as of today all cruise ships which have scheduled calls to Princess Cays will go ahead as normal. In fact, the impact of the fire has been minimal with only Carnival ships replacing the call including Carnival Pride, Carnival Ecstasy, and Carnival Conquest. The first Princess cruise ships are arriving at the island today.

When the fire broke out that night huge flames were burning palm trees, bushes, and buildings. Well done to the local fire crews for extinguishing the fire around an hour later. Princess Cays is located in the southern part of Eleuthera and isn’t just a private island like the nearby Half Moon Cay which is also owned by Carnival.
