If you go to Freeport, do take the shuttle to Lucaya. It's a beautiful beach, good shopping, and even a casino. The port area is industrial, but away from the port is a beautiful island, much cleaner than Nassau, with friendly locals.

We did the behind the scenes tour on the Epic, even though we've been on many. I just wanted to see the workings of this massive ship. I really enjoyed it and they even gave us some treats in the kitchen. It was a wonderful view from the bridge, great for taking pictures.
I'm really excited!! I will remember the sticky buns!! This Sky cruise is Grand Bahama, Nassau Bahama and Great Stirrup Caye. To be honest, I'm not sure I'll even get off the ship!! The Epic will be St Thomas, St Marten and GSC...should be fun!!

Thanks for the tip on the behind the scenes tour!
