Today, we arrived at Princess’s private island destination, called the Princess Cays in the Bahamas (new country for Emerson). Following breakfast, Libby, Emerson and I took the short tender ride to shore. We picked out a couple of prime lounge chairs on the beach, slathered on the sunscreen, and then headed into the water.

Emerson had a blast in the water. I’ve been paying seemingly ridiculous rates for months at what Libby tells me is an “elite swim school” (whatever that means) for her. On this trip, I could finally see some return on our investment as she was far more comfortable and capable in the ocean than other kids around her age. All told, she spent the entire morning in the surf with us before heading back to the ship.

For lunch, we had pizza (IMHO, Princess offers the best at sea). We then headed back to our cabin to shower off the sand and salt, as well as to take an afternoon nap. Dinner was once again in the main dining room–Italian theme night–and generally very good. After dinner, we took Emerson to the Explorer’s Lounge to see/hear a vocalist perform.

Tomorrow’s a ‘relaxing’ day at sea…

Here’s a view of Princess Cays from our balcony.
