P&O mini cruises from the UK can whisk you away to Belgium, calling at the busy port of Zeebrugge, where you are within easy reach of beautiful and historic Bruges, the home of fine chocolate and even a chocolate museum. Take a canal boat trip to see Bruge’s beautiful historic buildings, and visit the Belfry – a World Heritage Site landmark offering incredible views out over the city. Alternatively, see the floral lawns and landscaped paths of the Beguinage, a peaceful retreat away from the centre.
Why not embark on a mini cruise to The Netherlands? You could choose to travel on from Zeebrugge in Belgium and spend two days docked in colourful Amsterdam – home to world-famous landmarks like Anne Frank’s house and the comprehensive art collection in the Van Gogh Museum. Tuschinski Theatre is a must-see Art Deco masterpiece and one of the city's most beautiful buildings, and you absolutely have to stroll alongside the city's famous canals. Don’t miss the Flower Market during your time here, too; the perfect place to pick up some of Holland’s famous tulips.
If you want to mini cruise somewhere closer to home with P&O Cruises, why not sail from Southampton to Cobh on the coast of County Cork, where you can take the Titanic Trail and visit the beautiful, French Gothic Cobh Cathedral. From there you can visit bustling Dublin, where you will have a couple of days to explore the many sights, sounds and tastes of Eire’s capital. Tour the fair city’s pubs and bars, or visit Glasnevin Cemetery and Croke Park, the fourth largest stadium in Europe.
