Brugge is a lovely place to visit, a lot of cobbles though and a touch of Venice. In case you want this the website for the railway system http://www.b-rail.be/main/E/index.php This is the English option. The train fare is 2.40 euros single. Taxis are available costing €45 to the centre of Brugge, and it takes about 25 minutes, very convenient, but maybe OK if sharing but cheaper by train. The distance from Zeebrugger to Brugge is around 8/10 miles.

Very easy! The cruise companies normally provide a shuttle bus to Blankenburge & drop you off at or near the railway station. The little train runs frequently to Bruges & a return ticket is only a few Euro's from memory. A great little place for a day visit.

Or there is the station at Zeebrugge -Dorp,a walk of 10 mins from the ship. The station is opposite the water tower,small sign,train only runs from here to Brugge. Buy a return ticket of the train guard on board 5 euro return. Suggest you google for train times to see which station has a better service.

Book a taxi (info@brugsetaxiservice.be). They will be at the ship whenever you want and will bring you back at an agreed time. Cost is 90€ for the return journey. Usually easy to find another couple to share the ride, which makes it far cheaper than the coaches and more convenient - they take you right into the main square.
