    It's so simple to do it yourself on the little train.
    They normally shuttle bus you to Blankenburge train station from there it's a 15/20 minute train journey and then a 10 minute walk into the main square..........Wilba

                Hi squiddy, I haven't been on any shore excursions but I can say that the train services in Belgium are excellent. It's a doddle to do the whole coast of Belgium on the little train and the service to and from Bruges is great. Just don't do what I did and leave your OH on the platform when the doors are closing!

                Liberlass, why did you have to post that pic? There's nothing to beat Belgian chocolate. I've had no chocolate for months and I want it NOW!

                  The worst mistake we made when we called at Bruges was having taken a taxi ride into Bruges, decided to get the train back and bought a ticket to Zebrugge (as this is where the ships port). Big mistake, it was in a desolate and remote area, no taxis, walked for miles before hailing down a tour coach to get us back on the ship. We completely forgot about Blankenburg and thought we were doing the right thing by going back to Zebrugge.

                  It was 10 years ago though and I wonder if this is still the case? Is Zebrugge train station still desolate?

                    We have shared a taxi in the past.

                      Only been three times. But next time I am going to buy the biggest box of chocs. for Bosscat. It hurts me so much to read the pain she is suffering. But seeing as you are going sooner Helen, have one for both of us! Just one mind you! Carol ;)

                          No! I didnt know. Could be thats why I am regretting sending the boxes of chocs. to my two grandkids? They are too old now for eggs. (But I'm not) I'm a very good grandma sometimes, but I'll fight with them for the chocolate! Carol :p:p:p
