1,405 Freeport Cruise Reviews

Did not get off for this port as it was very appealing at the pier. So we decided to enjoy the quiet on board the ship.

Our stay in Freeport was limited to five hours instead of seven hours as the ship needed to leave for New York early again due to the Right Whale migration. We took the kids on the Dolphin Encounter tour and it was great. We needed to take a bus to the boat in order to get to the dolphin preserve, but it was well worth the trip. The kids and adults had a great time learning about the dolphins and getting in the water, chest deep, in order to pet and interact with them. We could not use our camera as it is not waterproof, but we bought the pictures from the tour company for a reasonable price of $10 per picture. Read Less

     Our 3rd port on the cruise was Freeport, Bahamas. I was NOT impressed with this port. First of all you pull into a ship yard to dock. Not my idea of what paradise should look like. If you do not have a shore excursion booked here, do not bother getting off. There is no readily available beach when you get off of the ship. All that is on the dock is a straw market where the people were kinda rude and would heckle you. My husband, son, and Dad had a fishing trip booked for months at this port. They got off of the ship at 7:45 am to be told at 8:15am that the trip was cancelled due to wind and rough conditions. They understood, but it broke their hearts. Especially my 9yr old son that had looked forward to it for months. I will say that the staff on the dock were very accomodating by allowing them to join the excursion that my mother, my daughter, and I were going on. We had booked the Garden of the Groves and city tour. The first half of our tour took us to the Garden of the Groves. This is a beautiful place. However, I found the tour guide very boring. I would have preferred to tour it at my own leisure. This tour is certainly geared more towards senior citizens or people who are exteremely interested in information about plants and trees. Although my parents are both in their 50's and found this tour extremely boring. My mother was a floral manager in a grocery store and is an avid gardner and still felt this way. The second half of our tour took us to Port Lucaya marketplace. However, since we were with a tour we were only given an hour there. All of us were starving so of course the first thing we did was eat. That took up 20 mins so we were not left with much time to shop. Again...this is some place I would like to go on at my own leisure. All in all Freeport was not terrible but I couldn't help but wish we had visited Nassau instead. Read Less
