Not as much to do here. Small area to shop, must get a cab to really get anywhere, but very clean and people are nice.

We LOVED the Jeep Tour adventure in Freeport. There were about 7 jeeps in our tour and there were 4 people to a jeep. The guide was in the first jeep and communicated to us through walkie talkies/radios in our jeeps. It was fun as participants drove on the left side of the road. The tour included many interesting and fun parts of the island including the pine forest and the beach (we got to swim in very clear water for an hour). The tour also included lunch. As Freeport is a very industrial port, we were very glad we booked an excursion as we're not sure what we would have done if we hadn't. Read Less

We have 18 Carnival cruises between DH and myself and have never had a bad crew experience. This was true for the Pride crew also. From our Room Steward team to the dining staff and the Lido deck staff, each and everyone was smiling and more than happy to make our vacation the best it could be. Kirk the Cruise director and his entire staff and absolutely the best! The shows were wonderful and the comedian Carl Strong was hilarious and not to be missed if you are on a ship that he is on. I cannot say enough about Kirk and William (ACD) and Jamie, the soon to be ACD. They were always available and more than willing to help in any way possible. Thanks guys for a wonderful cruise.

Area where the ship docked wasn't that impressive, we looked through the small shops located there, didn't purchase anything though. Then we took a short bus ride to Port Lucaya (I believe) and did a glass bottom boat tour. Overall it was a nice ride, boat wasn't quite what I had envisioned. The tour guide was a little odd. We were to make it back to the last bus by 1 and we got to the bus at 12:55. The boat during the excursion got stuck on something and with us running a bit late we didn't get to look at anything around the port area. Read Less

We went to Paradise Cove for a snorkeling trip. Our driver was very informative and gave us lots of information about the island. The staff was very friendly, except the lady at the register who didn't want to give me the discount that Barry had offered me. She wanted to know why I didn't print out my email from Barry to prove that I was suppose to get the discount. So if you email Barry in advance, he will give you $3 off per adult and $2 off per child. Just make sure you print out his email so you have proof! She did call Barry and get verification of my discount. Otherwise the staff was extremely helpful. They even spent extra time with my 10 year old as he had a hard time getting use to the snorkel equipment. After he adjusted to it, he had the best time! The lunch is worth the extra $5.00. If you don't pay the $5 when you pay for your trip, you will have to pay regular price for the food if you get hungry. A burger is $3.50...so I suggest getting the meal. They are very accommodating and let you stay as long as you want. It's about a 20 minute drive. Just be careful if low tide comes in, they didn't tell us that low tide was coming in so our second time out the water got very low and we were stung by sea grass. There was no way around it as the water level was to low. But they did give us vinegar to stop the stinging. Very nice place, highly recommend it! Very laid back, only about 15 cruises there!

Nothing to do at the pier you would have to take a taxi to the Lucaya beach resort and I understand the snorkeling was canceled due to high winds on the beach

Port Lucaya beach was nice we "squatted" the Radisson, that resort is new and seemed 90% empty, the whole port seemed dead. Nice weather and facilities, not much shopping at Port Lucaya Marketplace.

My rating of Freeport is based on our tour with Pinetree Stables. We booked a tour directly with the owner for a two beach/ecotrail ride. Cab ride was about 10-15 minutes ($5 pp) to the stables. We had a group of 5 people (including my 8 year old daughter). We were the only ones on the ride along with three guides. The owner kept my daughter's horse right behind her and led it the entire ride- which definitely made me feel better about her riding for the first time. The guides were very informative about life on the island and the entire ecosystem. We rode for about 45 minutes through a wooded trail area and then onto a beautiful beach- horses walked through the water for about 10 minutes and then we rode back to the stables. The guides took our cameras during the ride and were not shy about taking pictures for us- I think I have a total of 50! Horses were well cared for and very gentle- they seemed to have one speed- slow, which was fine with me! Returned to the port and walked around the shops (which are just the same as every other island) and then back on the ship to head home. Read Less

There is nothing really to do here. Our ship only came here as we were cruising in hurricane season and the seas were too rough. All there is, is some shops, a Radisson hotel, and a beach. Very horrible experience and will never return.

We spent the day on the Viva Wyndham Excursion...the beach is fantastic, you can rent jet ski's for about $70 or use any of the non motorized water sport equipment for free....there's even a flying trapeze for you to play on. There's a bar/burger/hotdog/fries shack on the beach and all was included...the buffet restaurant was mediocre at best but we didn't care...we were having a lovely lazy day on the beach. The excursion is great if all you're looking for is a day at the beach. Read Less

Upon arriving into Freeport, Grand Bahamas, the first thing we noticed was a very thick yellowish gray mist coming from the harbor and spreading out into the bay. We saw that it was coming from smoke stacks at an industrial area in the harbor. It seemed to dissipate as the wind blew in another direction. We pulled into the harbor and took pictures of a very picturesque scene. Colorful little buildings and stores lined the port and when we got on land, we noticed all the the shops with Bahamians selling their stuff - very touristy! We walked around a little village and stopped at the Le Med Restaurant. The food was excellent and delicious and the waitress was so nice. The total price for our food was kind of high but well worth it! We then took a taxi to one of the beach hotels just to sit out on the beach and enjoy the weather and the water. We were served drinks by a very friendly waitress at one of the beach bars. We stayed on the beach and enjoyed the scenery for about an hour and then grabbed a taxi to go back to the ship. Freeport was very quaint and the native people there are very friendly. Read Less

Luckily we booked an excursion through NCL.. We did kayaking through a mangrove forest and had a picnis lunch provided on a private beack at Lucaya National Park. The secluded beach was gorgeous....mile after mile of white sands and crystal clear water. With that said....Freeport was really like a ghost town.....if I were NCL I would make this a day at sea. I liked the excursion....but most people complained at the lack of things to do. Read Less

the straw market is in the process of being built just off the Dock , this is an improvement from getting off at the old dock but it's too far from town to walk and you have to take a cab everywhere. Excursions in-tale more travel than the actual time spent on the excursion itself .. I have too many other islands to compare the Bahamas too and they just don't stack up ... staying on the ship is preferable to getting off at this port, unless you want to gamble at Atlantis.

We thoroughly enjoyed our snorkeling trip with Captain Tony on Sand Dollar Cruises. We had heard of this excursion on Cruise Critic and were pleased that it was all that we hoped for and more. There were ten of us on the catamaran and we each got individual treatment. We motored out to Treasure Reef and put the sails up to come back in. Saw lots of different and beautiful fish and coral. This was a highlight of our trip and would definitely recommend it to future visitors to Freeport. Visited the straw market where my wife bought a sun dress and returned to ship for an afternoon of relaxing around the poor. Read Less
