Flanders from the North Sea to the Capital of Belgium River Cruise

Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,158

Explore the best of Belgium on this short Europe cruise through one of its smallest, yet most historic countries. Bask in the medieval beauty of Bruges, before exploring the modern delights of Antwerp and Brussels.


Please see LEFT BAR for ship details and other cruise info.

This 5-day short Europe cruise takes you through Belgium’s most enchanting cities, including Ghent, Antwerp, and Brussels, with an excursion to Bruges.

Embark in Ostend and enjoy a welcome cocktail with the crew before dinner and your first night aboard ship. On your first full day, take a guide tour of Bruges, the ‘Venice’ of northwestern Europe, known for its canal-crossed medieval architecture, beautiful lace, and rich history. In the afternoon, you may choose to take a tour of Ghent and its cathedral, or explore the canals of Ghent with dinner and dancing.

Antwerp is known for its diamonds, but the city itself is the diamond among the list of cities frequently bypassed by travellers to Europe. If you’re looking for high fashion, art, and culture, Antwerp is ready to deliver. It’s all served along cobblestone streets, dotted with ritzy chocolate shops and galleries.

Arrive in Brussels, the capital of Belgium and arguably the capital of Europe. Half French, half Flemish, this unique city is so much more than its businesslike reputation suggests. Bringing together the best of Germanic and Latin Europe, Brussels is packed with interesting museums, gorgeous architecture, and delicious treats, often in the form of beer, waffles, and chocolate…but not always.

A gala evening onboard ship brings your Belgium holiday to a stylish and memorable end before disembark.
