3 min read

The past working day of our cruise delivers us to a new cruise port, Freeport.

Freeport is on Grand Bahama Island, and this is the initial time I’ve been in a position to investigate this port of call.

There are not numerous options for what to do, so I booked a go to to the Grand Lucayan resort.

The Grand Lucayan is a renowned resort on the island that Royal Caribbean is most likely getting to change as element of a new redevelopment undertaking. I believed it might be nice to see what there is to do now, and how it appears to be like.

Our situations in port had been 7:00am to 3:30pm, so it manufactured for restricted several hours on shore due to the fact almost nothing in any Caribbean port opens right before 9am.

We walked by the port area, which experienced outlets and bars.  These were all shut, while some opened later in the day.

We took a taxi to the resort (~$35 each and every way) to the hotel. Our taxi driver mentioned we had been his to start with fare in a 12 months and a fifty percent.

As soon as we acquired to the resort, we checked in at the entrance desk.

There are two resorts: The Grand Lucayan and Lighthouse Pointe.  The Grand Lucayan is shut, but Lighthouse Pointe is open up.

We arrived correct all around 9am, and I in fact booked a hotel room on an all-inclusive rate.  At the time of reserving, the lodge was not having working day passes, but they are performing that now.

The day pass charge is $75 per adult, and $65 for children.

With the all inclusive solution, you get foods and drinks at all the eating places at Lighthouse Pointe, household wines by the glass, neighborhood beers, and bottled beers and some top quality liquors.

Perrier H2o, Vitamin h2o, Gatorade, Wine by the bottle, and best shelf brands are not integrated.

We promptly headed to the pool and seaside.

There is an infinity pool and lap pool readily available, along with a incredibly hot tub. The two seemed excellent, and there is chairs and umbrellas you can sit at.

The beach front was seriously awesome, and the sand was powdery tender.  If it had not been mostly overcast, it would have been truly really.

There was no waiter assistance, but the nearby beach bar was just techniques absent from the pool and seaside.  They opened at 11am and served drinks and lunch.

You can inform the resort is in need of some update operate, but for a working day visitor it was good.

What stood out the most to me was the point there ended up barely any other guests. For the 1st hour or two, we did not see any individual else at the beach or pool.

By the time we left, we noticed potentially 10 other guests in overall.  It was strange.

We had lunch from the pool bar, and they experienced a pleasant assortment of food options. Burgers, wings, fish and far more.  Pretty very good high quality and new cooked.

We had a wonderful time making the most of the infinity pool to ourselves. Being an all-inclusive, I am particular we did not get our moneys value in conditions of food and drink, but it was appealing to see this vacation resort in human being.

Would I go again? I am debating that proper now for our following sailing. It seems like a lot of other cruisers did not enjoy their excursions, so we might just keep onboard the ship next time.
