Ostend Mini Cruise

Indulge in a different kind of short break when you travel to Belgium with P&O Ferries on our Ostend Mini Cruise.

Book your trip today from just £40 per person.

Our Ostend Mini Cruise is one adventure you won’t want to miss out on. For just £80 you’ll get the chance to enjoy world-class entertainment and on board services on one of our Hull to Zeebrugge crossings, as well as a return coach transfer straight to the idyllic destination of Ostend, Belgium. Spend a day exploring this gorgeous seaside town before embarking on your return voyage.

You’ll find a whole world of entertainment and relaxation at your fingertips when you step on board one of our Hull to Zeebrugge sailings across the North Sea. For those looking to rest up ahead of their big city adventure, you’ll want to head straight to your own personal cabin or perhaps to The Lounge where you can enjoy our on board Wi-Fi services. Or, if you’re feeling peckish after boarding the ship, why not head to one of our great selection of restaurants serving an excellent range of food and drinks to keep you satisfied during your journey?

And don’t forget the fantastic entertainment we’ve got lined up for you; you can dance the night away in one of our on board bars, or play some games in the video arcade – the choice is yours. You’ll also want to make sure to grab a bargain in our shop, offering some of the best deals on all your favourite brands so you can even stock up on anything you may have forgotten to pack for your trip!

As if all that isn’t enough, we’ve even sandwiched a day trip to beautiful Ostend in between your return Hull to Zeebrugge crossing. The Ostend Mini Cruise gives you the perfect chance to explore this wonderful ‘city by the sea’, only a 30 minute drive from Bruges. Known as Belgium’s largest seaside resort, weather permitting you’ll definitely want to head down to the beach and explore the 5.5 miles of golden sandy shores.

Within the city centre there is plenty to do, from shopping in open-air markets like Groentemarkt to discovering a little piece of history in the stunning neo-Gothic churches of St Peter and St Paul. Not to mention the city’s wonderful art galleries, museums, and wonderful local cuisine, you’ll struggle to fit everything you want to do in one day. For even more destination inspiration, check out our Travel Guide for some great hints and tips.
