Hubby & I are setting sail Sept. 26 on the Fantasy and wondering what are the BEST things to see and do in port in Freeport and Nassau? Any must sees? Also looking for some must do's on the ship other than enjoying the yummy food.
I've never been to Freeport, but in Nassau, go to the Atlantis.

We did the dolphin swim in Nassau. One of the best experiences of the cruise. I booked it through shoretrips.com.

Freeport is also very lovely too. We rented a taxi and did a variety of thing that pleased us. we went to a casino, a beatiful shopping plaza, had a tour of the island ,when to beautiful idyllic beach . Before we left the ship, we had ordered a box lunch which we enjoyed at the beach. Very romantic. The people are very friendly and want vacationers to have a wonderful time.
After this weekend, I hope there is something left for you to see! It will be good news if you can at least lay on a beach. Atlantis will probably be OK. Just keep checking the availability of things and weather damage from Hurricane Frances. I expect when we go on our cruise Sept. 18, our Line's private beach will have been wiped out and we'll keep sailing until we reach St. Maarten-far down.
I really hope you have a nice time on your cruise wherever the ship takes you! Lynne
I was in Nassau a couple of months ago, and I would say that you're best bet is to head to Atlantis or see a couple of sights (we went and saw the Pirate Museum-it was pretty neat) but leave shopping for another port. Everything is pretty expensive, so stick to the local handicrafts (strawgoods, etc)
However, our ship is ordinarily re-routed to Nassau and Freeport in case of poor weather, so it looks like I may be reacquainted with them fairly soon!
Thanks for all the input!!!! You all are great! After the past couple of weeks with the hurricanes and repairing going on - I am not going to worry about what to see and do - just be gratful that I will be able to see whatever! I really feel for those people - they have really had it rough this season so far. Anyway, thanks to the other threads, I have decided to just go with the flow and enjoy whatever! Thanks again!
