After getting off the ship in the Bahamas we took the advice of a previous cruiser and asked for Otis after being asked by a tour guide if we needed a taxi. Otis did a great job and for $20.00 a person we had a 2 1/2 hour tour of the Island. He was very informative. He had a nice van and also spoke very good English so you could understand him. He took us to all the well known tourist places on the Island. Although we did get a little tour of Atlantis we basically just saw the property and some of the public places. He gave people the option of ending the tour their and taking a taxi back to the ship. Although we went with him back to the ship I understand it is about a $4.00 taxi fare back. They also have a water taxi but it is a little walk to get to that from Atlantis. Atlantis is beautiful. He is the only Otis so when you ask for him they will direct you to him or have you wait because he does not get there until 9-9:15. Read Less

We did a lot of research on this port and couldn’t find much to do. There is absolutely nothing around the port itself, so we decided to book an all inclusive excursion to one of the local resorts/hotels. It was a little pricy, but we figured what the heck. This was evidently a very popular one, because they didn’t have enough transportation for everyone. The first bus left about an hour late and we were waiting for the second one. It became apparent the second bus was not coming anytime soon so I asked the Carnival Rep if we could get a refund because the entire excursion was scheduled for 5 hours and we were already into the second one. He was very friendly and understanding, our entire refund was credited to our account that night. The day was not a total loss though. We decided to take a taxi ($5.00 PP) to the Casino and Shopping/Resort area. I think this is the way to go. The casino was clean and modern; the shopping area was small but had some unique store and lots of good restaurants. After a few hours it was back to the ship to enjoy a bucket of beer on the lido deck, get some rays, and watch the new big screen TV that had been added during dry dock. Again, the weather was wonderful at this port. Read Less

For anything happening in freeport you must go to Port Lucaya, using the public beach between the Westin and Sheraton Our Lucaya. Having been to Port Lucaya, you had a good mixture of shops and restaurants to choose from. Stay away from the hotel restaurants as they are over-priced. Some of the nicest and quietest beaches are found on Freeport. Either rent a car or take one of the expensive tours to get here. Read Less

Very average shopping...Island looking bare because of hurricanes, docked in an industrial area and had a very grumpy cab driver...unable to snorkel due to high winds.

We arrived in Freeport at 7 am so we got up early and planned a taxi ride into Port Lucaya for some shopping. We were dropped off at 8:30 and found only 1 store open so in the pouring rain we just stood around and wondered why the other stores did not open early knowing that the ship was only here until 11:30. We briefly checked out the casino ( which did not open until 10 am) and headed back to the ship. Checked out the straw market near the ship and gave up when it started to rain again. Not enough time at this stop to really get to see anything. Read Less

Very disappointing. Nothing more than a refueling stop. At least on our trip. There wasn't enough time to do anything. We arrived at 8 am and had to reboard the ship at 11.30.

Another port with almost nothing. There is a Straw Market at the port with souvenirs and clothing, but that's it. Nothing but cranes and large cargo ships. Your only option is to book expensive shore excursions. Our time in Freeport ... Read More
Another port with almost nothing. There is a Straw Market at the port with souvenirs and clothing, but that's it. Nothing but cranes and large cargo ships. Your only option is to book expensive shore excursions. Our time in Freeport was short (5 hours). I did not see the point in shelling out a lot money for a quick trip across the island. Read Less
