The ship was great...big ship and the service is unrivaled. You can find something to do at anytime and food everywhere! I was on my honeymoon and we booked excursions through for Freeport and Nassau. We were very unsatisfied with the directions we received from for the excursion. we were instructed to take a taxi to the resort(which was nice enough even though the weather was bad)and that it would be about $5-10 if we could group riders together. The dispatchers for the taxis tried to put us alone for $33 ride one way and the directions from the website said the resort was 2 min away from the shopping center so we rode there with some other people but it was $20 even to go there with a van full of people.Once there,the taxi driver made us get out and told us to catch another taxi to the resort since it was 9 miles away! we were left there and had to pay another $15 just to get there. There is no way it is 2 minutes from the shopping center,even driving. The taxi drivers were unfriendly and not helpful at all. we had to pay $25 to get back to the ship.That is $60 in taxi fees!! I wouldn't book through anything but the cruise ship for this port since you will be ripped for taxi fees. I have taken taxis in Cozumel on my own before and never had this problem. Our excursion at Nassau on the other hand was wonderful as we only had about 10 people on our catamaran and the cruise booked one was packed. The excursion staff was wonderful and we had a wonderful time snorkeling away from the crowds. I would recommend this one as there is no transportation needed.They meet you at the pier. I would recommend this cruise but Freeport is really not the nicest place to visit and I would just stay on the ship for that one and not waste your money.

Pros: I liked the snorkeling at Nassau

Cons: the excursion at Freeport and dealing with the taxi transport to the excursion

Recommends Carnival Conquest? Yes!
