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

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

Dear customer Many thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. By doing so we can continously improve our service where necessary. As explained in our intinery intructions our shuttle service provides in the morning (from 08h30 AM untill 12h00 pm noon) every half an hour a shuttle from Zeebrugge to Bruges. In the afternoon our shuttle service do also provide seven moments to go back from Bruges to Zeebrugge. This schedule is always adjusted to the time of departure of your cruise ship. As an extra service towards our customers, do note that the last shuttle bus will wait max 10 minutes longer on the coach parking for latecomers. Please note we never compromise not getting back on time on your cruise ship. This is just an extra service towards our customers and is calculated. Regarding your remark on the pickup point, we are very clear. You will always be picked up where you were dropped off. Simple as that. If we do hear from our supplier that construction/repairs are scheduled on the coach parking, we do provide a representative on the spot. Again thank your for sharing your thougts. In the case you have any other remarks, do not hesitate to send them. Kind regards Cruise Express
