The private resort of Princess Cays was ravaged by fire Monday night, which by initial reports appears to be substantial.  Owned by Princess Cruises and located on the southern tip of the Bahamian island of Eleuthera, the resort recently completed several upgrades which included adding wifi for the cruise line’s MedallionNet system.

According to a spokesperson for Princess Cruises the fire encompassed several buildings on the south side of the island and was took approximately one hour to extinguish.  An investigation is underway to determine the cause.   Bahamian officials report the fire started in the electrical generator structure.  The company is also assessing impact to scheduled ship visits.
