Two of the three stops on this cruise were Princess Cay in the Bahamas and the island of Antigua.
Princess Cay is a small strip of land operated by the cruise lines with beaches for the exclusive use of ship passengers. There is food and entertainment also provided. Because the water in the area is very shallow, passengers are ferried to shore by lifeboats and ferries. We did go ashore just to see what it was like.

Antiqua is half of the country of Antiqua and Barbuda in the British Virgin Islands group. Its colonial history is much the same history as the other Caribbean islands. The island suffered severe damage from this season’s hurricanes. Reports indicated that 90% of structures had damage and 50% of the population lost their homes
