If you judge the port by International Standards the Port at Freeport is quite decent. Most Internationally Known Ports provide dockage in Industrial Areas rather than the more touristy Carribbean Port facilities. At least in Freeport You can disembark at a rather nice looking passenger center with convernient transportation...it is safe and well patrolled, the cab drivers are friendly, knowledgeable and very honest!!.A little research on Freeport in advance of a cruise yields amazing results!!
