Senor Frogs in Nassau. I could not believe my ears when the waitress said we don't have light beer. I said you mean you are out of light beer at the moment and she said, no we don't sell light beer. Is it me or does the beer drinking world consist of more than 50% light beer drinkers for the last 20 years. Don't even think of going to Atlantis, Paradise Island to ride the slides unless you have just hit the lottery or you think 149.00 per adult, 129.00 per child over 12 is a good deal to ride 2 slides and stand in line for three hours.

A bunch of nagging beggars. The taxi drivers negotiate a fare upon leaving and the somehow forget what it was and demand double upon arrival. That happened twice.

Freeport, Bahamas was an OK port. Do go to the Garden of the Groves if you get a chance. You can easily spend 4-hours there if you like nature at all. I figured it would be boring (like many garden tours), but it was a wonderful place. If you go, there is a small food shack selling grilled foods, salads, hot dogs, etc... . EAT THERE! At first, we saw their prices and thought the food was just overpriced, but we were hungry after walking the gardens. $14.00 for a salad? $6.00 for a hot dog? Meat & Cheese tray for $9.00? Yes... but the hot dog was HUGE!. The salad would easily feed 2-3 people and was a gourmet fruit & veggie salad, better than any restaurant salad I've eaten recently. The meat & cheese tray featured gourmet cheeses, meats and exceeded my expectations. It would be a light meal for 2-3 people as well. For a little out of the way food shack... they serve a 1st rate meal, probably the best you will find in Freeport. Skip Port Lucaya Marketplace. Unless you just want to buy touristy stuff... there is just nothing special about it. You can bargain with the merchants somewhat, but overall there is nothing worth seeing there. I would have preferred spending more time in the gardens. There is a straw market near the ship, with only a few buildings. You can find the same things there as in the Lucaya Marketplace and for the same prices too. There is nothing anywhere around the port worth seeing. There is a taxi stand at the port and no trouble catching a ride anywhere you want to go... just be aware that anything of interest is at least 5-miles away from the port. Read Less

Was expecting worse at the actual port but there were a few little shops and as long as you understand that it's a real shipping port, you shouldn't be disappointed. We went to Our Lucaya and thought it was alright. There are shops and a beach but nothing special. The "drink in a coconut" was a rip-off. The space in the coconut is about the size of a test tube. Just order the drink in a regular cup. Read Less

Small. Definitely. No time to really get to places or soak it up because we were there for only 8 hours or so, and we slept late. Liked the beach, but shopping limited. Cabs easy to get.

This was a very basic port. There was a souvenir shop that you could go to. You would have to take a tour to get onto the island.

Wish we had more time. Went to Lucaya by taxi (about $15). Wish I would have known before hand, but the beach had banana boat rides (my kids loved them), parasailing, and snorkeling. We did not bring our equipment or have enough time, but we would use them next time. The take you out to a small area off shore and you can snorkel all you want before they bring you back (like a little float out there). We swam a little, shopped and had the banana boat ride. Small bathroom with outside showers close by. Said for hotel guests only, but when you gotta go you gotta go, so we went and there is no one to stop you.   Read Less

Walking vendors selling jewelry, shirts, and hair braiding. If you do not see one you want, ask one of the others and they can usually get them for you.

During our day at Freeport we decided to just take it easy and booked no excursions for this port. When you exit the ship, there is a small market to buy bags, beach towels, T-shirts, etc. It will take you about an hour or so to check everything out. If I could do it again, I would have booked an excursion for Freeport as there is not much around where the ship is docked. We are actually going back in a few months and have already decided on an excursion. Still, beautiful weather, beautiful water and a "take it easy" kind of place. Just make note that there is not much to do right there where the ship docks. Read Less

We did not even get off the ship at Freeport, since we didn't have a shore excursion booked. We docked and looked out our balcony at an industrial area, with the nearest beach and shopping 11 miles away. There were a few shops immediately off the ship, but we decided to take advantage of the less crowds by the pool and hit up the water slide. Read Less

We heard there wasn't much to do here so we booked an excursion. There is a very small straw market right @ the port...nothing to write home about. The bus took us to the small town Lucaya. (20 min ride each way) We did the Sea Safari & Snorkel excursion. VERY GOOD! Boat ride was about 30 minutes round trip. We went to Rainbow Reef. Actual snorkel time was only a little over an hour. But we fed the fish right from our hands...AMAZING! Reef was pretty and there were tons of fish. The crew was very good and helpful. Small cash bar and grill was available. After we got back to land we walked around the Lucaya straw market. It was much larger with a better selection. There are also some places to eat...we got ice cream. There were 2 shuttles that went back to the ship, one at 130 and 330. We took the late one and walked about 10 minutes to the beach. We accidently walked through the Radisson resort that was on the beach. It was empty and used their beach and beach chairs. It as quiet, empty and beautiful. A great relaxing afternoon. On and off the boat was a breeze. Read Less
