Brugge (Bruges)
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
I give this four rather than five because of the actual port of Zeebrugge, which is a commercial port and it was very difficult to have a friend pick us up and drop us off. I was not informed that she would have to have a special pass to get anywhere near us, although she was allowed to drop us off at the end of the day as we were with her. So if you are having friends pick you up at Zeebrugge please bear this in mind.

Bruges itself if a beautiful little city. We spent hours just sitting in the main square just drinking coffee or having lunch. The canal tour is a must and there are plenty of places to pick up a boat and do this.

The old historic building are well preserved and very pretty and of course there are chocolateries and lace shops galore.

Some people were also taking a carriage ride, which we did not have time to do, but looked good.

Ideal place to see in a day.

We docked at the Holland America terminal where the local people had set up stalls, and later put on a show for us.

Rotterdam itself is a modern city, and we only drove through it on the way to Amsterdam.

Hard to judge a city in the pouring rain, and the royal palace, one of the main attractions, was covered in plastic. A canal tour is a good way of seeing plenty of the city without too much walking and without getting wet.
