What’s the Mini Cruise from Hull to Bruges like?
It’s a great question.
And one which we wondered about, too.
So what did we do?
We booked a couple of tickets and tried it out.
Hull to Bruges Mini Cruise Review
Because we went in March 2018, just before the Easter holidays began, our tickets cost a mere £43 each.
Yes – £86 for both of us to go on a 2-night cruise.
Now before you get over-excited about that, I must say that it isn’t a cruise in the traditional sense.
And here’s why:
- It’s on a ferry, not a cruise ship
- Food isn’t included in the price
- There’s no dress code
Is the Bruges Mini Cruise Worth the Money?
Yes, I’d say it was definitely worth the £86.
Three main reasons:
- We enjoyed the comfort of our own cabin with bunk-beds.
- We were treated to a choice of evening entertainment.
- The coach travel from the port of Zeebrugge to Bruges (and back, of course) was included.
If you want peace and quiet, you might not get it.
The cheaper off-season price seemed to attract certain groups.
On our cruise were:
- A group of lads; well-lubricated and high spirited. We reckon it was a stag party.
- A group of girls; probably a hen-party. They were well behaved, though.
- A school group. Chattery, but no problems.
- A couple who evidently were there for the booze – their bad language and manners gave them away.
However, some of these people travelled only one way. You see, it’s not just a mini-cruise, it’s a ferry.
And because it was out of season, the ship wasn’t crowded. Therefore, it was quite easy to find a quieter spot away from the crowds.
So none of these spoiled our mini-cruise.
But would we go on another?
Yes, we would.
Our Bruges Mini Cruise Video
We made a 4-minute video to give you a guide to what to expect with things such as:
- Ship facilities
- In Bruges
- Getting back to the ship
- Even where to park in Hull
One last thing. In the end, we actually paid less than £86.
That’s because we went to the P&O Ferries Website through TopCashBack, the cash-back site.
And they gave us 10% cashback. You can’t turn that down, can you?
