We went to Freeport twice in 2010 on the Carnival Fascination. I was so impressed with the industrial port where the ships dock. Everything seemed to be in perfect order. Cab rides to Lucaya are $5 per person. The shopping area there, hotels and small beach couldn't be nicer. There is also a nice small casino.
Someone mentioned Lucaya is 12 miles from the port. During the whole ride there I didn't see any depressed areas. Many homes seemed newer with red Spanish clay tiles. The manicured landscape near the beach and hotels made me feel like I was at Disney World.
So much better than Nassau.
