Good experience Short boat trip. The walking trip through the city was a little rushed. Very short time on your own

We took the free cruise bus to the station and got a €5 return cruise special train ticket to Bruges. There’s nothing not to like about this beautiful city.

Now that taxis are prohibited from entering the port and ship-side it makes it much less attractive to visit in your own time.

We got off the ship and walked around Blankenburg. We ate Belgian waffles, sampled different kinds of beer, and of course ate chocolate. We also walked along the shore on the beach and explored the local shops. The town seemed like a great getaway location on its own! I loved seeing all of the dogs everywhere too. Read Less

Zeebrugge is a horrid industrial port where you get a free shuttle to the port gates. Ours was driven by a miserable old sod who wouldn't get out and help wheelchair passengers. I had to put the ramp up and down myself. The security girl at the port gate was embarrassed by him. Brugge trips aren't suitable for the infirm. You can get the tram to Blankenburg where the shops all shut for 90 minutes over lunch. The tram stop is, bizarrely, about 400m from the port gate. Not sure why that is as it seems to only be used by ship passengers. Read Less

There are available taxis and trains into centre. Trains were every hour and our taxi cost us 55 euros each way. Being with elderly people it was easiest way. About a 15 minute journey to Bruges. Bruges itself is lovely.

We had been a few times before to Zeebrugge and weren’t that fussed about Bruges, war cemeteries again and thought we might stay onboard but as a lovely sunny day we took free shuttle bus to port building where you buy tram ticket to Blankenberg 6 Euro each for day pass. We got off a couple of stops before the centre of town and walked through the sand dunes and along a gorgeous beach, along the prom, to the marina and mooched. Plenty of places for a coffee/beer and bought some chocolates goodies. If you have young children the beach and the various facilities on seafront make for a lovely family day near to ship. Read Less

Shared a taxi with a couple we met on Cruise Critic and spend the day on our own in this beautiful city. Did a canal tour and a bus tour - glad we did both; as there are some things that you can't see from one or the other. Husband also took horse drawn carriage ride; while I consumed fantastic mussels & frites at a café on the center square by the clock tower. Of course, we bought chocolates - OMG!!! Perfect day!!
