Very friendly and helpful
May 2020
We had a very nice experience in Bruges and we owe this mainly to the nice service of this shuttle :) We weren´t allowed to leave our ship at the moment we arrived due to some sick people on board at the beginning of the corona-pandemy. When we left the ship, our transfer time to Bruges was already expired, but nevertheless the friendly employees of this shuttle service made it possible for us to visit Bruges :) Thank you!

Would Have Been Good
Feb 2020 • Family
I'm sure this shuttle transfer from Zeebrugge to Bruges would have been good but P&O changed the itinery the afternoon before we were due to visit - so we did not get to Bruges and lost the money for the transfer for 5 people as it was outside of the period where you get a refund. You are safer booking the more expensive ship transfer as it is refunded if the port is cancelled.

Shuttle to Bruges
Dec 2019 • Couples
This was a fantastic service, not sure why more people were not using this. It was less than half the price of the P and O coach transfer. They responded very quickly to a question via their Facebook page... on Boxing Day! If you need to get from the ship to Bruges this is highly recommended.

Coach shuttle from Zeebrugge port to Bruges
Dec 2019 • Couples
We booked this in advance thinking it was the only way we could get to Bruges without using the expensive P&O option, but later discovered that P&O were offering a free shuttle from the port to the train station and a return train ticket was only 5 euros compared to the 20 euros we paid. Getting to Bruges on the coach was easy, but getting the coach back wasn't as the coach park was full and nobody knew where the coach would pick us up from. In the end a rep from another company told us to wait by the exit as that's where the last coach picked people up from. When it did arrive, 10 minutes late, it was a mad dash to get on as there were too many people for the coach and some got left behind and had to wait for the next one. Ideally there should have been someone from the coach company at the coach park helping us and forming an orderly que.

Dear customer Many thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. We duly appreciate this since we want to continuously improve our services. Please find our thoughts beneath. (a) Since the beginning of our service, already four years ago now, we indeed use the one and only coach parking in Bruges. Since our start we never experienced any problem getting access to and from this coach parking. Apparently, due to some constructions/repair activities, the coach quota is temporarily decreased which results that the quota was reached in the afternoon. No single coach was allowed anymore to the coach parking. As we were not informed about this situation, we gave our coach drivers immediately the instructions to wait for our customers at the exit of the coach parking. We do believe this was the best possible solution in the given situation. We can confirm that every single customer was brought back to the ship, without any problem. Do note, from now on untill those constructions/repair activities on the coach parking are completed, we will be having our representative on the spot to guide every single customer to our coaches. (b) We always provide sufficient coaches to provide and guarantee a smooth shuttle service to and from Bruges. Also on this particular day, we can confirm we had plenty of margin on our capacity. When there are - on a certain shuttle moment - more customers than seats, we immediately send a second bus to the coach parking which will be there within three minutes. Those customers will have a seat and this coach will immediately leave for Zeebrugge. We internally verified this via our track&trace system. (c) You are right that some cruise companies do offer a free ride to Blankenberge. Once in Blankenberge there is just one train, every hour, which will bring you to Bruges’ train station. Do note this train station is also 1.6 km (20 minutes) away from the market square – equal to the official coach parking. Every single person is free to do whatever he or she wants, but to judge the situation objectively in Zeebrugge it is always better to take a direct coach/taxi/… from Zeebrugge to Bruges than going to Blankenberge to take the train. You will lose so much time on your transport which reflects immediately on your spending time in Bruges. On top of that we do offer our service (Zeebrugge – Brugge) from 08h30 AM untill 12h00 PM (noon) – each half an hour there is minimum one shuttle coach to Bruges. In the afternoon, depending on the departure of your cruise ship, there are also seven moments to go back from Bruges to Zeebrugge. No customer has to tell us in advance which coach/time schedule he or she wants to take. Absolutely freedom as it should be. We hope we have answered your thoughts and we do hope to see you again when arriving back in Zeebrugge. If you have any other thoughts, please do contact us! Kind regards Cruise Express
