Visited Bruges before? Try this two-night mini cruise to Ypres instead.
You'll get to spend the day touring Ypres town in Belgium at your own pace.
At 6.30pm your modern ferry will leave the Port of Hull and sail overnight to Zeebrugge.
Enjoy the entertainment on-board, feast on a delicious dinner, or enjoy a bit of shopping before heading to bed in your own en-suite cabin.
At 8.45am (or 9.30am on weekends) you'll arrive in Zeebrugge where a coach will be waiting to take you to the centre of Ypres. Depending on traffic you'll normally be there around half an hour to an hour later.
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.
Foodies can rejoice as Ypres has a thriving food scene. Make sure you taste some of the finest Belgian chocolate available as you browse the many shops.
At 5.30pm the last coach departs Ypres taking the last load of passengers back to the ferry terminal. At 7pm the ship sets sail bound for Hull the following morning.
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All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice.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.
