Freeport requires a cab drive to do anything. The shopping is not that good and the free beach was dirty.

If you don't take an excursion, you'll be led into a touristy shopping zone. Nothing much to see or do other than buy trinkets and drink at one of the bars.

Some stuff to do right by the ship (Senor Frogs, a bunch of market stalls) but no beach in walking distance. You spend so little time in this port that it didn't matter.

the Straw market was easier to maneuver here, no one trying to shove baubles into my hands or my kids hands. we didnt go further than the pier though.

we have been on cruises to Freeport, Bahamas several times. actually we did not plan to get off at this port at all, but since the internet fees on the ship were so expensive, we went ashore to find an internet cafe. the first time we were to Freeport we had an okay time. but we really didn't have any reason to want to return, so on subsequent cruises we didn't even get off the ship.we didn't find all that much we were interested in doing while we were there. this time we got off to find an internet cafe, which we were told would let us use an internet connection for free or for the cost of a drink or some such.we left the ship, went through the covered market area close to the ship looking for the cafe that several people told us about. we asked a few concession owners if they knew about such a cafe and we pointed in the direction. we got to a cafe, but they only had use of their own computers and directed us across the street to a restaurant/bar that they claimed had WiFi and it could be used for a small purchase.we ordered ice tea at this bar and then i asked about the WiFi use. i was informed that the cost of the WiFi use was $25 and this amount could be made up in food or drink purchase. by this time we had hat it and i went ahead and ordered an appetizer that covered the cost. i only wanted to download an app and attempted to do so. it didn't work.it not only cost me $25 for about 20 minute use of the WiFi, but the bartender added his own considerable tip to the bill.on the way back to the ship, walking through the market area again i noticed a seating area and upon a closer look, realized that there were many people seated, standing and leaning on the walls and each and every one was working on an electronic device, computer, smart phone, etc. i guess the bottom line was that anyone of the people i spoke to on the way through this market could have told me that there was free WiFi right there, and they did not. instead, i spent about $30 for an appetizer and 20 minutes of WiFi.i will probably take more cruises to Freeport but i won't be getting off the ship.

Pretty boring. Tried to do a snorkeling excursion, but it was canceled due to high winds (which happens a lot apparently). They were very nice and gave us a refund and we ended up going to the free beach. It was very busy and not very clean -- the whole city is industrial and pretty shaken by hurricanes dating back to 2002. Clean it up already! The shopping was nice -- a lot of jewelry, cubans are available, cute place for souvenirs. Read Less

This port is very far away from activities on the isalnd, and the port is not a welcomg area at all, although the building are ion slightly better shape than in Nassau.

We took a taxi to Port Lucaya marketplace and did our shopping in the straw market ($10 round trip; taxis are easily available once you step off the ship). The straw market workers were very friendly and more than willing to work out a deal. Much to our surprise, however, we learned that there were better deals on the cruiseship; you could get shotglasses for 88 cents on the boat, compared to $2.50 in the straw markets. However, no straw market worker was willing to sell a shot glass for less than $1. Read Less
