We were in the afternoon group. It was a typical cruise line excursion. Follow the crew directions to stand in line and wait on transportation (bus) to the beach. Bus driver gave us information as we drove to the beach, but Freeport is an industrial type port without the level of history of other Bahamian ports. The beach was fine with an attentive staff and plenty of umbrellas. The food was delayed because of the nature of being the second group of the day. Once prepared it was satisfactory. Read Less

Probably the most disappointing part of the cruise - and this is my fault for choosing it - was the excursion in Freeport. We chose the "Bahamas Adventures Beach Day" (with lunch included). The "front" staff, who got you onto the bus and dropped you off, were very nice but once you were there the employees for the most part were NOT smiling, happy people ready to provide a nice experience. It looked like they were genuinely pissed off to serve us, despite our smiles and courtesy when ordering. The only redeeming quality of the excursion was the fact that you could walk the beach and find sea glass. It was too cold to snorkel in January. Definitely not going to use any of the "Bahamas Adventures" excursions from now on, if that's an example of their staffing. Read Less

Basically paid $49 each for a bus ride to a mediocre beach. It's about a half hour ride and the driver was very informative on the way there. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas. Paid $14 for chips and salsa that might of cost them fifty cents. Small portion!! Beach was clean but had a lot of rocks. Was not as pretty as other beaches we've been to in the Bahamas. Next time (hoping we never have to go to Freeport again!) we'll rent a taxi and take us to a nicer beach. Read Less

We got a day pass to the Viva Wyndam Fortuna beach resort. All inclusive all you could eat and drink. Very nice beach and pool. Employees extremely pleasant. There were some sellers of local goods on the beach pestering the guests but were chased off by the staff. $89.00 each covers the cost of the day pass but you still have pay for a taxi to get there; about a 25 minute ride and the cost was $64.00 roundtrip for two. All you need do is tell the driver when you want to be picked up and they will be there. Read Less

Freeport – we choose the beach excursion. Meet at the Harley Davison Store in the port – easy to find and wait for the double decker bus to take you to the other side of the island. 20 minute ride. May is rainy season – so the skies opened up as we drove to the beach. Those on the 2nd level of the bus got wet. We enjoyed the experience of getting soaked even before we got to the beach. It rained the morning except for the last 40 minutes. We still went in the water as it was warmer than the rain. So people left early as the bus came 2 and 3 hours into the excursion. We stayed the 4 hours and enjoyed getting wet in and out of the water. Some people were disappointed but you cannot control the weather. Spent $120 for the excursion and an addition $11 for nachos. There are about 30+ shops right off the ship. Tip - Head away from the first few shops and you will get better deals. We picked up a large Bongo that they engraved for $25 to the left of the Harley shop from a couple when the same Bongo was $75 from the first shop through the gate. Again haggle if you like – but this couple was working hard and handmade all their goods. They also had homemade wooden crosses with shells and local rocks that were only $10. Spent $50 on souvenirs.

The white sands at the Grand Lucaya were beautiful, as was the infinity pool. The music playing by the beach was good and the DJ's were doing their best to get the crowd on their feet. Our waitress took our order and never came back so I went to the bar and got our drinks, to find another waitress serving the drinks to my wife (after 1/2 hour). My wife felt bad for the other waitress and paid her as well. Taxes and gratuities are added to the bill whether the service is good or not. Went shopping but the duty free shops were the same prices as US, and in some places even more expensive. Smaller shops held lots of local stuff, but the desperation with which we were approached by the vendors made us leave quickly...it was too much. Read Less

Day 6- This was by far the most fun stop. We chose an excursion that was a private beach tour where you could have all the food and alcohol you wanted. The worst part about this excursion was that it only lasted from 8-1. We rented paddle boards which were $20 for 1.5 hours. The servers were very attentive and our cups were never empty. There were a few that were unable to hold their liquor and made for an interesting ride back to the ship. Read Less

We did the All-Inclusive Beach Day. We were only at the port for a few hours so it felt rushed. We were able to rent snorkeling equipment but there were so little fish to see it was silly. The food provided was good. The drinks were good but too strong for me. No lounge chairs, just upright. Staff was nice. I just wish we had more time there. Went by far too quickly. Read Less

The excursion booked with the cruiseline was lovely. We had a private bus with a very kind and funny guide who gave us a tour of the island providing all interesting information about history, society, school system, economic situation and a tour of the incredible luxury villas of billionaires. We were just a bit unlucky because during the tour a wheel exploded and we had to wait around 20 minute for another bus to come and fetch us. But this was nobody's fault. Then we went straight to the Grand Lucayan Resort...and this was worth all the 39 $!!! An outstanding complex of swimming pools and white sanded private beach. We did enjoy all of it, we relaxed and even if it was for just a couple of hours it was a dream. Before 4pm we headed just opposite the resort at the shopping area, kinda of a city centre, with restaurants and shops. We tasted the famous Conch fritters at one of the little kiosk right at the port and then the bus brought us back to our ship. So for us definitely was a good choice, without stress on what to do and where to go and how to go...this was easy ad enjoyable. Read Less

We did the Family Beach Day and loved it! The beach was beautiful and our son had a great time playing in the water, building sand castles and playing on the playgroup equipment. The only reason it does not get a 5 is because the food that was included was ok. We had fried fish, chicken, salad and quesadillas and some other odds and ends. It was ok overall, not really worth the up charge for lunch. Read Less

Although it was a bit choppy and definitely not the best snorkeling conditions, they really did their best to make sure everyone had a good time. Although it is highlighted that the beach is not "guarded", the folks who worked there were engaging and always within view of the beach. I have no doubt that if someone had gotten in trouble in the water, they would have been able to act immediately. Read Less
