We had read a lot of negatives about Freeport. I was pleasantly surprised that the port was, while in an industrial marina, was clean and bright with cheerful shops and awnings. The port is a 25-miute ride from the sights, so I would advise an excursion if you're going to Freeport. There are some really cool ones, including some ecotours to see the Blue Holes, so there's no excuse to just say "There's nothing in Freeport!" We had booked a biking adventure through Carnival. We took a bus with a group of 18, boarded our bikes and enjoyed 12.5 miles of biking. The exercise felt great after all the meals we had been indulging in! Our guides, Leroy and Johnny, we excellent. Leroy shared his passion for his country and related many facts about the history of Grand Bahama. We visited the Garden of the Grove (lovely), Taino Beach (beautiful), and peeked though the fence at the dolphin sanctuary (sounds lame, but it was interesting and we did spot a few dolphins). Carnival could have done a more detailed job of explaining all that this excursion offered; it was well worth the $89 fee. The trip had advertised a snack, but we had our choice of several sandwiches, chips and drinks. Leroy provided lots of water bottles so you don't need to bring water. The also ferried backpacks, so if you bring along swimming suits/towels, etc. you don't need to bike with your load. The bike ride ended at Junkanoo Beach Club for an hour of swimming and sunning. The water was a little cold, so we didn't swim, but enjoyed the view and a cocktail. After the hour was up, they drive us to Port Lucaya Marketplace which looked nice, but we opted to go back to the ship. The excursion was described as 5.5 hours, but was closer to 7, so we were ready for a rest.

Beautiful scenery w/ very knowledgeable guides. Alex and Cardo did a great job of making sure the whole group had a great time. The terrain is mostly flat which makes it easy and they stop often to share information about Freeport and to answer questions. Lunch is at the beautiful Garden of the Groves and was a delightful experience. I could have done w/ out the 45 minute beach stop and gone straight to the shopping.
