We took the Return Shuttle from the port to Brugge last week. So simple to book and board. We took the free shuttle from the ship, just walked round the corner of the port building and saw the blue shuttle standing flag. Waited about 5 minutes then boarded the bus to Brugge. Its a pretty walk through the park to get to the Centre of Brugge; about a 15 minute walk (if you take your time). On the way back the bus was waiting and we were back to the ship. Very simple - would recommend and would book again.

Meeting point is close to the port gate, and although communication between the on site staff and the coach driver seemed a bit sketchy at first, the coach did arrive by 09:30am and dropped us at the designated drop-off point in Bruges about 25 minutes later. The return journey worked well and there were 2 coaches available at the pick-up point ahead of the scheduled time of 13:30pm. Again about a 25 minute transfer time back to Zeebrugge port.

The transfer worked great, from the ship there is only a free shuttle bus to the cruise terminal, from there according to the description to the cruise express. Here you can also find out the departure times for the return trip (every 30 minutes and the last trip adjusted according to the ship's laytime). We had booked tickets in advance, but you can also buy them on site. A nice, elderly gentleman escorted us to the bus after just a few minutes of waiting and after about 30 minutes we were in Bruges in a large parking lot. You will also be picked up at the same place. From there you can quickly reach the old town and (in contrast to the transfer with AIDA) have enough time to explore everything... and at a much lower price! Highly Recommended!!! We were in the old town of Bruges in about 60 minutes from the ship
