Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: R165
Traveled As: Couple

Freeport was very industrial, basically docked at a shipyard. Had to taxi to small area where you could shop, but basically every shop sold either jewelry, or souvenirs, very disappointed. Nassau, was better but unless you went to Atlantis the beach was rocky, and were constantly bombarded with peddlers. The crew onboard could not have been better, they all treated us with excitement and continually surprised us with knowing our names no matter where we were. The Debarkation process is a total pain and took entirely too long. When we put the luggage outside at night, we expected it to be delivered to the parking garage, but instead it was only brought to the dock, which then needed to be loaded again on to a trailer connected to a van, and then hauled to car. It should go directly to where we were taken in the garage to help speed up the process of debarkation. There was only 1 pool, and often was overrun with children. Food was great, entertainment was great, piano bar needs to be in a better venue, the Egyptian motif and placement of the piano made it hard to interact unless you were directly at the bar, but Elizabeth was phenominal ! This may sound like more complaining, but we really did have a blast on the ship, it was the ports that were more of a let down. PU, Pedro, Julius, Darris, Elli and Elizabeth made our trip such a memorable experience.

Choose to take own luggage off ship, you can leave early and beat others saving a ton of time. Don't expect too much of ports, and enjoy the time on the ship.
