PLANNING YOUR HEN DO MINI CRUISE
Beautiful Belgium is the perfect destination for a hen do, especially when you’ve got cities like Bruges, Brussels, Ghent, and Antwerp at your fingertips when you step off the ferry.

For your convenience, we’ve included transport, accommodation, and a whole variety of entertainment in the cost of your Mini Cruise, so all that’s left for you to do is gather your very best girlfriends together and get ready for a hen do with a difference!
Read on to discover some of our top tips for planning your hen do Mini Cruise so that you can make the most out of your trip to Belgium.
Pack everything you might need
One of the best things about taking a Mini Cruise, unlike when you are travelling to your hen do destination by plane, is that there are no luggage allowance restrictions. This means that you can (very importantly) bring as many outfits, shoes, and classic novelty hen do items as you like.
In addition to this, your full-sized shampoos, conditioners, and moisturisers are welcome on board too as the 100ml bottle limitation is not relevant when you sail with us. So if you want to bring an entire suitcase just for cosmetics then there’s nothing to stop you!
Enjoy delicious meals
Flying to Europe usually consists of eating uninspiring reheated paninis and unhealthy snacks, but ferry travel gives you the opportunity to enjoy a sit-down meal with your hens. You can even relax and enjoy a bit of a boozy brunch if you so wish. With so many delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner options on offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Head to The Brasserie for an à la carte dining experience with waiter service and unrivalled sea views that will get your hen do off to an amazing start. Or, as a more budget-friendly option, treat yourselves to an all-you-can-eat buffet in The Kitchen where you can experience a range of different tastes and flavours from around the world.
Both restaurants offer a wide range of beers, wines, and spirits, which is vital if you’re planning a hen do that involves having a drink or two, or you can opt for unlimited soft drinks in The Kitchen if you would prefer a dry alternative. Either way, choice is yours.
Make the most of your chosen city
It couldn’t be easier to reach your city of choice, as all you’ll have to do is simply hop onto your coach transfer when you arrive at the port. You’ll typically have around 6 hours to explore your destination, allowing you plenty of time to see all of the sights, tuck into some tasty food, and probably have a cheeky drink or two.
We recommend that you research and book any tours or activities that you would like to do before you travel. This way you can then feel confident and relaxed in the knowledge that you’ll get the best out of your time there. Even if you have a particular restaurant in mind for lunch, it doesn’t hurt to make a booking in advance.
If one day just isn’t enough then you can always add a night to your Mini Cruise. To do this you just need to book yourselves into a hotel for the night and come and join us for your return journey the following day, which will be just as fun as your outbound trip. We recommend using our hotel partner booking.com to find your perfect place to stay.
