Fabulous if you like oil storage facilities and a power plant. The ship docked well away from anything else!

The worst port ever. If I ever book another cruise with the same ports, I will stay on the ship! If you go, be sure you get it in writing how much you are paying for taxi services. They will lie to you. I was told one price before I got in the van for a round trip to Port Lucaya. When trying to come back, I was told a higher price then the one we agreed on. Read Less

As we arrived in port, there sat the Celebration - the first Carnival ship we ever sailed on, where they lost my luggage. It was nice to see it though - we had great memories of our 25th Anniversary trip. We could not get an accessible tour here so we wandered through the kiosks near the docks and then got a cab to Grand Lucaya Hotel and Casino. It took half an hour to get one and we should have passed on it because it ended up costing us $40 round trip - $10 each for us each way and $10 each way for the scooters. We explored the Grand Lucaya Marketplace and enjoyed the band that performed, but it was the same type of thing that you see all through the Caribbean, just marked Bahamas. We spent $20 in the Casino slots, winning not a thing and returned early. It was a good thing because it took 1-1/2 hours to get a cab again and we were almost late returning to the ship. Never again. Read Less

Getting back on boat a nightmare. Very hot waiting on line at least 45 min. Buses pulled up as well as taxi's and those tourist cut the line. Only one security machine open for everyone. Had second which was not open. Should have had two lines, one for returning passengers the other for those who stayed in Freeport. Once through that mess, no direction as to where to go, there was another line for those coming onboard from staying in Freeport but no one told you that was what it was for. Read Less

We paid $17 per person to be taken to Taino Beach, which is 25 minutes away, we were promised watersports. We got there, the beach was dirty and empty. Watersports offered were kayak, paddle boarding and jet skiing was extra. We asked for ... Read More
We paid $17 per person to be taken to Taino Beach, which is 25 minutes away, we were promised watersports. We got there, the beach was dirty and empty. Watersports offered were kayak, paddle boarding and jet skiing was extra. We asked for lounge chairs and were told it was $5 each but he negotiated to $2 each. We sat in the chair for minutes, a storm rolled in and we left. Paid about $100 for 15 minutes and didn't get a dime back. Not impressed with Freeport and wouldn't visit this port again. Read Less

Ship docks at the commercial port. Nothing there for the vacationer without taking an excursion or taxi/bus. On a previous visit we rented a car from the airport and were picked up at ship.

Horrible industrial port. Carnival has done a lot to build up the little "shopping city" outside the port so you don't have to spend a fortune to get to the other side of the island to do anything. This is a total waste of time visiting this port, I wish they would find somewhere else to go (think private island) instead of this waste of time. Read Less

When we docked at Freeport, my husband and I thought we were back in the Navy. This looked more like an industrial port than a cruise port. We haven't been to this port before so we decided to give it a chance and go ashore. Bad decision. Senor Frogs was disgusting and servers were rude. The street was filthy and bees were everywhere because of all the trash. Mostly, it was the ship's crew eating, drinking and smoking. We stayed for about 30 minutes (I had a delicious pina colada). the security guard at the port didn't even look at our cards and ID's. Terrible port. Read Less

Stay in port. There is nothing to see. Everything is closed on a Sunday. Nassau is the place to be in the Bahamas, but it's 100+ miles away across water. The taxi tour operators charge $30 per person to drive you around. Extreme robbery. If you have to go somewhere by taxi, just pay a regular taxi. Read Less

This place is so gross and dirty it shouldn't be a port. Freeport is an industrial yard that smells like gasoline from the refinery. The water is just not pretty on Grand Bahama. This port looks like a bunch of coal power plants by the ocean. Tourists really have no business going to this island. It is very disappointing that Carnival would take guests here. We did an excursion at this port. Read Less
