Freeport has a beautiful little diamond hidden on this tiny island! When you get off the ship, hop a taxi and take a cruise across the island to Port Lucaya! There is lots of shopping to be done and the beaches are beautiful! It isn't a well know destination so it's secluded and not too heavily populated by tourists. I found it a few years ago when my whole family took a cruise. My brother and I sat down in a taxi and the driver, Bear, said "where would you like to go?" I replied with, "take me to your favorite spot on the island!" And he took us straight to Port Lucaya. He told us where to find a taxi when returning to port and we were set! A full day of fun without the hoards of people that we faced at other destinations! It was a blast!! I hope this helps but let keep this our little secret! 😉

Played in the sun and napped at the beach. What more could you ask for.

People say there's nothing here, but I found the little colorful shop huts right at the port to be delightful, and we enjoyed looking around and buying things. It was a charming little area, with lots of shopping for souvenirs. No one was pestering us for taxis or excursions there too!

WE HAD HEARD NEGATIVE REVIEWS ON FREEPORT. WE WERE VERY SUPRISED AT HOW MUCH WE ACTUALLY ENJOYED THIS PORT. THE SHIP DOCKS RIGHT ON TOP OF ALL OF THE LOCAL MARKETS. THERE IS A SENOR FROGS, FAT TUESDAY'S, DEL SOL AND MANY LOCAL VENDORS. WE DID THE DOLPHIN SWIM FOR ABOUT $205 PER PERSON. IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. THIS WAS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE. GREAT ALL AROUND.

We did not purchase our excursion in advance. Right off the ship there is a taxi stand and there are prices listed. Unfortunately you have to have a group of 12 to get that price. The beach we wanted to go to was going to cost us $50 each way because there were only 4 of us so we had to settle for something else. It ended up being a great day anyway; always be flexible and make the best out of it. Shopping at port isn’t anything too exciting but little trinkets and helps the locals. The island is beautiful. There are areas where you can see damage from previous hurricane season but mostly just missing trees.
