Day 18:

Discover the city’s magic on your own, or opt for some “Bruges Delights”

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, then a day at leisure to discover this magical city on your own. Or embark on an optional tour of Bruges Delights. This is a foray into the city's culinary treasures, and will take you to a chocolatier, a local pub for some beer tasting, and a stop for a delicious Belgian "lace cookie." This is an ideal excursion for those looking to taste some of the country's signature food and drink. Dinner is at the hotel.

Bruges Delights

  • Approximate Cost: $75 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3 hours
  • Location: Bruges, Belgium

Among the most famous “delights” are Belgian chocolates! Nothing like what you’ll find in other parts of the world, Belgian sweets are much richer and this world-renowned chocolate is a true treat. On this optional tour, hear how to make the perfect chocolate — while tasting some! You'll also sample light, crisp, and elegant lace cookies, which are named after the lace-like holes that form as they bake. But if the sweets don’t do it for you, the beers just might. This little country makes a lot of beer (almost 200 breweries reside here!) and really good beer, too — from Flemish reds to lambics, dubbels to blondes. You probably won’t be able to try them all, but while on cruise, you’ll have the opportunity to taste a few.
