  1. Hello, My review of Bruges is almost identical! We were to meet my cousin that i hadn't seen in 40 years at a square in Bruges. Unfortunately we slept in a bit, and were a bit late but the day was still great. We too took the port bus to the station. I had printed directions to get to Bruges from a forum post. Tram to Blankenberge, train to Bruges simple as easy to do, and as Ken said, much more economical than the ships excursion. We were worried a bit if we were at the correct tram pick up, had it read just wait in front of the church steeple it would have been spot on. The train ride was fairly short and easy. Like Ken, we stopped for directions at the tourist info, "follow the park", he said, that was not the best advice as we got somewhat lost. Finally met up with my cousin at the Z'stand square he had mentioned and spent a lovely day exploring the city. My father is from Aalter a town about 20 minutes from Bruges, so they were excellent guides! Another fanatastic day weather wise we really lucked out.
  2. Hi Ken, we had over 15,000 steps that day! I agree the cruise critic roll call worked out well for this port. A shared taxi was more economical and convenient that the ships bus! We enjoyed Honfleur very much. Honfluer has to be one of the most picturesque places we have been to. Sitting in a french cafe, enjoying a glass of wine and a panini overlooking the water was lovely. I took so many pictures that day, and the weather was perfect. I did a review on cruise critic for MSC but will likely hijack your thread along the way.
  3. Glad you enjoyed this cruise Ken. Looking forward to your port reviews. Being on the same cruise, and first time MSC'ers we thoroughly enjoyed it as well. We enjoyed the MDR for dinners as well. All were good except i wasn't keen on the cuttlefish either. Breakfast buffets were excellent. Plenty of variety, sometimes a bit cold though. I questions the expectations of those that bash the food, as we found good variety, fast service in MDR and pleasant staff all around. One thing we were extremely impressed with was the cleanliness of the ship. Always cleaning they were, guys out first thing in the morning sterilizing the railings and all round the ship. I'll do a full review later, but wanted to chime in on your review.
  4. We will be in Zeebrugge in September and looking to get to Bruges. I've researched how to get to the train, but this also looks convenient. Any experiences with Cruise Express? (our cruise has a ridiculously priced shuttle and i am looking to do it on our own) Thanks in advance
