P&O Cruises Britannia Bruges Mini Cruise – 21st September 2019

If getting time off work mid-week is a struggle, try this weekend mini cruise.

Sail aboard P&O Cruises' flagship, Britannia, on a quick jaunt to Zeebrugge, where you can opt to tour the popular Belgian cities of Bruges or Brussels.

About this cruise

Britannia sails from Southampton on Saturday 21st September 2019. This modern cruise ship caters to British tastes and really is like a floating four-star hotel. The £1 million art collection sets the relaxed ambience. Dine in a variety of restaurants to suit all tastes (some included in the fare, others like the utterly amazing Epicurean restaurant attract a small additional fee). After dinner, relax in the bars, watch a live theatre show, or head out on a romantic walk on deck.

Your home away from home will be a comfortable cabin. Choose from the pocket-friendly Inside cabin, enjoy some private outdoor space with a Balcony cabin, or splurge on a luxury suite, with oodles of space and optional butler service.

Sailing overnight, you will awake in Zeebrugge, gateway to Belgium. P&O Cruises offers a variety of optional shore excursions to explore Bruges or Brussels, or you can choose to explore Belgium on your own. Just make sure you are back in time before the ship sails back to Southampton.

Bruges is a lovely little city, punching above its weight in terms of delicious Belgian chocolate, bars, architecture, and history. Canal boat rides and horse drawn carriage rides are popular with tourists. Brussels is a modern metropolis, and caters for all tastes. It boasts more attractions, galleries, and museums.

You'll arrive back in Britain early on Monday morning.

Highlights

  • Weekend cruise, ideal for those with limited time off work during the week
  • Enjoy a day in Belgium - book an optional tour or head off on your own to Bruges or Brussels.

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.

The Price

£259

On Friday 19th October 2018, I found a starting price from £259 per person based on two sharing the cheapest cabin (usually this is an inside cabin). 9 hours prior it started from £299 per person, a saving of £40 per person.

Night

What's that per night?

Want to compare this short break to a hotel stay? A starting price of 'from £259 per person' equates to 'from £129.50 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 15 checks, the cheapest I have seen this cruise start at is from £219 per person, and the highest I've seen it go is from £299 per person.

Wallet

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 9 months.

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.
