P&O Cruises Britannia Bruges Mini Cruise – 11th May 2018
Departing on a Friday means this Britannia mini cruise is an excellent excuse for a long weekend break!
Sail on P&O Cruises' latest cruise ship, Britannia, on a short trip across to Zeebrugge in Belgium, where you can head on optional tours to Bruges or Brussels.
About this cruise
Britannia sails from Southampton on Friday 11th May 2018. The captain does the hard work while you sleep, so by sailing overnight, you will arrive in Zeebrugge the following morning. You will have a day to spend as you please before the ship departs, charting a course back to Southampton.
In Zeebrugge, head to Medieval Bruges or bustling Brussels on your own, or join one of the ship's optional organised tours. Key highlights of both cities include exquisite chocolate, beer, art, and museums.
Britannia is a modern cruise ship and boasts the best of British. The cruise line focuses heavily on food and drink, with plenty of familiar British brands available onboard. This family-friendly ship has areas and clubs for the kids, and quieter sanctuaries for those that do not like children. If the May weather holds, the pools should be busy as will the loungers with passengers topping up tans as best they can.

So you know, the map above shows point-to-point lines which may cross land. Don't worry, your cruise ship will not sprout legs and run across dry land. Instead it's water all the way! Mapping is approximate, and the scheduled times are estimates. Your trip is subject to change as, occasionally, operators have to alter itineraries due to bad weather or unforeseen events.
On Wednesday 25th April 2018, I found a starting price from £249 per person based on two sharing the cheapest cabin (usually this is an inside cabin). 12 days prior it started from £229 per person, a hike of £20 per person.
What's that per night?
Want to compare this short break to a hotel stay? A starting price of 'from £249 per person' equates to 'from £124.50 per person per night'.
Here's a trend line showing the movement of the lead-in price for this cruise. I aim to check prices daily and this graph shows only those readings. I love geeky stuff like this and thought it might be handy when planning when to book your next cruise.
In my last 10 checks, the cheapest I have seen this cruise start at is from £199 per person, and the highest I've seen it go is from £249 per person.
Are there any extras?
This price normally includes some meals but excludes drinks, gratuities, optional shore excursions, and any applicable flights and transfers (if needed and if excluded). If you want a cabin or suite with a view, these come at a premium (if available).
Cruise prices are based on supply and demand so the more spare cabins there are closer to the sail date, the cheaper the prices often become. After all, no cruise line likes sailing with empty cabins and this cruise sails in 15 days.
I regularly check for price changes by hand, but as they can occur rapidly, please use the link below to get the latest prices.
Remember, prices were correct when I last checked, but may have since changed. Prices are usually based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin.
