The only impression I had of the port of Freeport was that it was industrial and had little to do. Thanks to one of Keri's co-workers, we found out about day passes that we could purchase from Grand Lucayan for $10 a person. It was the best money spent and I would strongly suggest anyone who ports in Freeport to take opportunity of this:
Disney World Half Marathon and we deserved some really delicious food. Right outside the property is a shack called Billy Joe's. We got the platter, which consisted of fried lobster, fried conch, fried shrimp and fried fish. You could taste how fresh it all was. It was beyond amazing. We split this huge platter for $25 and treated ourselves to a large Bahama Mama for $8 and left feeling full, happy and a little tipsy.
Back on the ship, this was the night of the Captains dinner. I was appauled at some of the things people wore to dinner. I get it - this is a casual ship....but seriously, do not wear cutoff shorts with your bra hanging out to Captains Dinner. No Respect. I was very excited to see Maine Lobster on the menu. Since Carnival will allow you to bring on one bottle of wine per person, we brought along our wine best friend, Cakebread. We also got ourselves a little side of attitude from one of the hostesses. She tried to sit us with two married men at a four top table. No. Not Ok. We asked to be moved to a single table and wholly attitude.
