I am looking for help/suggestion with a transportation issue.
We are leaving on a cruise out of ZeeBrugge at 1800; prior to that, we will be coming from Brussels.
First, what is the best way to get from Brussels to ZeeBrugge, and how long will it take?
Second, once at ZeeBrugge, we want to check-in our luggage (which has been already arranged) and then head to Brugge for 6-7 hours. We of course, then need to get back to ZeeBrugge from Brugge. So looking for the easiest/fastest way to do this.
Thanks for your help in advance,
Erica & Eddie
Trains from Bruxelles to Zeebrugge run hourly and take about 1hr 30, although you need to change in Brugge anyway.
The Brugge - Zeebrugge section also runs hourly, and only takes 15mins, and there's also bus connectiosn between Brugge and Zeebrugge, including some specifically to the dock to connect with certain sailings & cruises - i'm fairly sure one leaves around 1700 to connect with the Hull ferry, but that might be cutting it fine for you.
