Carnival Glory is visiting Freeport in the Bahamas today. TLC371 and the family we hope you have a fantastic time. Another place I know little about. I believe they have a dry dock facility.
Freeport is a city, district and free trade zone located on the island of Grand Bahamas of the North-west Bahamas. In 1955, Wallace Groves, a Virginian financier with lumber interests in Grand Bahama, was granted 50,000 acres (or 202 km2) of pine yard with substantial areas of swamp and scrubland by the Bahamian government with a mandate to economically develop the area. Freeport has grown to become the second most populous city in the Bahamas. The main airport serving the city is the Grand Bahamas International Airport. The Grand Bahamas Port Authority (GBPA) operates the free trade zone, under the Hawksbill Creek Agreement signed in August 1955 whereby the Bahamian Government agreed that businesses in the Freeport area will pay no taxes before 2054. The area of the land grants has been increased to 138,000 acres (or 526 km2).
