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.
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!

Praying for Freeport and the surrounding area! They really NEED our help and prayers! The fact that Dorian stalled over this island for over 24 hours will mean unprecedented loss of life and property for the area.
So happy to see this Port reopened. Loved the shops and open air tents to shop for local art and crafts. Friendly people. Not pushy. Food was amazing!
We went to perfume factory (really just a house). They do produce and sell a wide variety of products, including pet colognes. You can also blend your own special scent and they will save the recipe do you can reorder. Very nice people. We then went shopping. No pushy vendors and good food. The last stop was brewery. Nice tour of plant and an extensive tasting of all varieties. Tiny was our guide and did an outstanding job. A nice island tour.
We went to Grand Lucayan Resort at Lighthouse Point in Freeport . It was exceptional with unlimited drinks, food , infinity pool as well as the beach and views ...very relaxing and beautiful !
There is a lot of shopping to do right when you get off the ship, you don’t have to take a cab to Port Lucaya marketplace. We were able to buy all our souvenirs and take them back to the ship before our excursion which was nice so we didn’t have to carry them. There is a nice straw market right there with handmade items, look for Queenie, she has gorgeous crosses and ornaments.
We love Freeport. No cars zooming around, and if you don’t want to leave port stores, food, music, etc is right off boat. Everyone is friendly.

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.

I read and read about how there is not much to do in Freeport and everyone was right. However this was our favorite part of the whole trip. We took a taxi to the Grand Lucayan and bought a day pass. Their private beach is amazing. The infinity pool is amazing. This was a great stop and a great day!
