The renowned value of a P&O Ferries 2 for 1 Hull to Ypres mini cruise has returned, but with a twist.
Last year the 2 for 1 deal started from £89 for two people. This year, under the banner 'Mini Cruises Mini Prices', P&O Ferries has reduced the starting rate to from £45 per person.
While the offer is not called a two for one deal, you don't need to be a mathematician to see that this is effectively an identical offer. However, this year groups of three and five can take advantage of the same value that those travelling as a couple or a group of four used to enjoy.
Selected dates are available from October 2016 to March 2017. These include 4th October 2016, 18th October, 15th November, 30th November, 6th December, 13th December, 10th January 2017, 1st February, 7th February, 2nd March, and 14th March.
Prices start from £45 per person based on Sunday to Wednesday sailings. To get an actual quote for your own travel dates, select "Ypres (via Zeebrugge) Mini Cruise (departs Hull) (2 Nights)" when you get a quote here °.
You'll sail from Hull in the evening bound for Zeebrugge. Enjoy the great entertainment on-board your crossing and enjoy a comfortable night's sleep in an en-suite inside cabin. The following morning you'll dock in Zeebrugge and board a coach for a transfer into Ypres. You'll have up to around 7 hours of free time in Ypres (depending on the time you dock and everyone has boarded the coach).
Ypres (locally known as Leper) is often the starting base chosen by people looking to tour the Flanders Fields, a Belgian battlefield from World War One. The town's 'In Flanders Fields Museum' is worth a visit to learn more about the effect of the war on the region. There's also a Heritage Footpath that runs through the centre of the town. Ypres also has a thriving food scene. Make sure you taste some of the Belgian chocolate as you browse the many shops.
Your return sailing departs in the early evening and sails overnight back to Hull, giving you another chance to enjoy yourself on-board.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
Tip: Book online to avoid a surcharge that is applied to telephone bookings.
The dull-but-necessary small print
All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice. The lead-in prices (otherwise known as the 'from' prices) are, unless otherwise stated above, based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin on the cheapest available date. Typically the best prices are available at the start of any promotion period so the earlier you book the better choice of sailing dates and cabin availability you should have. Mid-week sail dates are likely to be cheaper than weekend sail dates.
