Good Morning Gang,
Kat - we have really enjoyed our two Princess cruise, both the same class of ship as the Crown. Princess Cays is their "private island" a little piece of land at the tip of Eluethra. Plenty of activities and lots of beach chairs. Our only complaint was that the sea floor was very rocky in the area we sat. The ship should dock at Grand Turk. It is pretty much another beach stop - the beach is right off the dock in fact. I agree with CQ regarding Magen's Bay, we have taxied over there a couple of times - have also gone over to St Johns for snorkeling. You can do that on an excursion or by taking a cab to Red Hook and taking a ferry.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
