A large, subterranean facility on Port Royal, the Royal Navy uses this cave as a prison work camp of sorts. Elsewhere, there are scattered tents for the imprisoned workers - many of whom will happily heal an injured pirate for only 5 gold. You will have to visit here multiple times to complete the Fine Cutlass Upgrade Quest.

There is a jail building, but if you are Knocked Out here, you will wake up in the main Port Royal jail. This place is likely to house the imprisoned workers.

Pirates can get here from the Governor's Garden or Wicked Thicket.

It is very similar to Beckett's Quarry on Padres Del Fuego. The cave area has undergone a major change since the Island Destructions.

There are lots of EITC and Navy soldiers here, but they are not anywhere as dangerous. While there are no permanent bosses in this area, some unstationary bosses are known to appear here.

There are NO stationary bosses in the Royal Caverns but random mini-bosses may appear in place of the standard enemies.

The only characters the pirate can interact with here are the group of prisoners who toil away in the work camp. Some of these poor souls are still happy to help any pirate who wanders in by offering to heal them for only 5 gold.

Cave Changes

The Royal Caverns, like many cave areas, were radically changed during the Island Destructions. Originally, the caverns were smaller and more dense with a higher ceiling. Numerous catwalks ran across open areas of shallow pools of water. It was also darker in many areas.

Changing the layout was meant to disperse enemies into more areas and add more space for searchable items, etc.
