Afterwards, the coach will take you to Gouda, a picture-postcard version of a little Dutch town. Picturesque canals, medieval buildings, a maze of narrow alleys and beguiling windmills all add to the enchanting ambiance. Named after the Van der Goude family who built a castle on the Gouwe River in the 11th century, Gouda was primarily swampland. But a canal built in 1225 was used to ship goods to France and other European ports. The city quickly flourished and received its city charter in 1272. Upon arriving, you’ll travel down Gouda’s narrow cobbled streets and make a photo stop at St. John’s Church. Founded in 1280 the church is dedicated to John the Baptist, Gouda’s patron saint.

Of the 72 windows that display biblical and historical scenes, 61 date back to the 16th century. And its 403-foot length makes St. John’s the largest cross-shaped church in the Netherlands.

At the end, there is some time to purchase some Belgian chocolates if you wish and pay a brief visit to the Chocolate Museum (on your own at no additional expense). Your free time will allow you to shop for the perfect souvenir among Bruges' lace and chocolate shops. Finally, your guide will lead you past the romantic Lake of Love and back to your coach for the drive back to the ship.

Please note:  The drive each way to Bruges is approximately 30 minutes. As coaches are not permitted in the city center, all coach transfers from Zeebrugge drop at the same coach park, this is a scenic 20 minute stroll into the center, with a few steps en route. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

Bruges, Flemish Countryside & Castle of Loppem
Tour through the typical Flemish countryside with a scenic drive to the quaint village of Damme. This Flemish village is steeped in traditional Flemish character. Use your free time here to stroll and explore or to sit down at a café and enjoy one of the many different kinds of beer Belgium produces (at your own expense). Damme is also known as a book town, with numerous bookshops and regular book fairs. Afterwards, you will drive through the outskirts of the historical city of Bruges for a view of the windmills and the impressive medieval city walls.  You will travel south of Bruges, where you will have the chance to visit the impressive Castle of Loppem. This castle has a particular and homogeneous style, in this sense that the architecture and the interior were kept in their original state. It was in 1856 that the future castellans, Baron Charles van Caloen and his wife, Countess Savina de Gourcy Serainchamps, appointed the English architect Edward Welby Pugin (whose father, August Welby Northmore Pugin, participated in the building of the Westminster Houses of Parliament) with the task of designing the plans. Loppem Castle later came to play a prominent role in the political history of Belgium at the end of World War I.

Please note: This excursion does not enter the city walls of Bruges, you only visit the outskirts of the city. This tour is ideal for guests who prefer minimal walking. For safety reasons, guests must be able to enter/exit the coach independently.

Bruges, Ghent & Bruges
Visit two of Flanders best preserved medieval cities, Ghent and Bruges.  You will board your coach for an approximate 1-hour drive through the scenic Flemish countryside to historic Ghent. Upon arrival, your guided walking tour will begin at St. Michael's Bridge where you will have impressive views of the historical city center. From this vantage point, you can see the old port with gabled houses, the Castle of the Counts and the famous "Row of Three Towers." Cross the bridge and pass the Belfry Tower to reach St. Bavo's Cathedral. Inside, see the ornate wooden pulpit and the world famous oil painting of "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb" by the Van Eyck brothers.  Reboard your coach and travel to the charming city of Bruges, often called "Die Scone" or "The Beautiful." Step back in time as you join your guide for a walking tour through the narrow, twisting, cobblestone streets passing picturesque scenes of ancient buildings, tree-lined canals and gabled facades. See the bustling marketplace, Belfry Tower, the Town Hall and the Chapel of the Holy Blood. After this guided walk you will enjoy a relaxing canal boat ride along the city’s romantic canals. Your excursion will include 45 minutes of free time in Bruges to shop for souvenirs, Belgian chocolates, tapestries, and Flemish lace. Afterwards, your coach will bring you back to the ship.

Please note: In the autumn of 2012, a long process of 5 years started to renovate the panels of “The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb.” Throughout the whole process, the panels that are not being restored at that moment, are still available to see in St Bavo's Cathedral for the public. The others are being replaced by copies.  For safety reasons, guests must be able to enter/exit the coach/boat independently. Itinerary might be reversed to accommodate extra capacity. St Bavo’s Cathedral is closed on Sunday mornings and for unforeseen religious ceremonies. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

Bruges, Ghent – Medieval City
As one of the most beautiful historic cities in Europe, Ghent is definitely worth a visit. Board your motor coach for the one hour drive from Zeebrugge.  You will arrive in the Old City of Ghent where you will meet your tour guide and begin your walking tour to St. Michael’s Bridge with its spectacular view of the city, the Castle of Counts, and the Row of the Three Towers.  Your tour will continue passing the old port, the Meat House, and the City Hall as well as St. Bavo’s Cathedral. Your guide will lead you to the pontoon where you will board a canal boat for a fun and thorough exploration of the city. As you cruise through the historic city see highlights such as the impressive castle of the counts, the Fish Market, 13th century monasteries and the ancient port of Ghent along with its mercantile houses. Once your canal cruise ends, you will have plenty of time to independently explore this gracious city. You may choose to enjoy a locally brewed beer in one of the stylish bars, or maybe a coffee in one of the waffle houses (at own expense). Strolling along the narrow streets, many of which are pedestrian, you will be enthralled by the unique architecture, while the shops will tempt you with their fine chocolates, Flemish lace and other locally crafted wares. Lastly, you will enjoy your second canal boat cruise back to the motorcoach for the journey through more enchanting Flemish countryside, and on to the port at Zeebrugge. 

Please note: It is approximately an hour each way to Ghent. Guests will be given a Quiet Vox headset. The guide will speak through the microphone in order for the guests to hear the guide during the walking tour.  There are three steps to board the motor coach and stairs to climb at the workshop.  Comfortable shoes are recommended and there are cobblestones. This tour is also not recommended for limited mobility.
