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.
Thanks for the tips. My Crazy sis has been to Grand Turk and loved the beach right at the dock. I will bring my water shoes for Princess Cays just in case it's rocky. On our FOS cruise we stopped at Labadee and it was great because lunch was set up on the beach; all we had to do was grab a beach chairs and some beers and we were all set. Sounds like Princess Cays is the same way. I love snorkeling, but it's a hassle for my hubby because of his facial hair. The mask doesn't create a seal around his face unless he shaves it. So we will probably end up in Magen's bay. Is St. Thomas pretty safe? I remember hearing about some violence there.
