Famous for its chocolates and lace, Belgium extends a warm welcome wherever you go. Peaceful countryside and ancient towns are connected by pretty Flemish waterways, which weave their way through this tiny country’s historic landscapes. Head for the family-friendly beaches and sand dunes of Nieuwpoort or explore the nature reserves of Westhoek. Be sure not to miss the beautiful city of Bruges, known as the ‘Venice of the North’ for its many canals. While you are there, try the famous ‘moules et frites’ and round out your meal with one of the 300 local beers. Then cruise to Ghent, Belgium's ancient Flemish capital, where gothic architecture abounds. In Ghent, pay a visit to the historic Belfry, explore the cloth market, or explore one of its many museums. To experience the centre of the Flemish tapestry industry, check out Oudenaarde. Explore the Beauvoorde Castle in Veurne at your own pace with an audio tour. Visit the extensive World War memorials at Ypres, where the Last Post is played at 8pm daily. The beauty of cruising in Belgium is that you can easily tailor your cruise to be as culturally busy or sublimely relaxing as you choose.
