Ferries to Belgium

The multi lingual North European country of Belgium has a cultural diversity that contradicts its dull reputation among travellers.

With two main linguistic groups, the population of Belgium is divided between the Dutch speaking Flemish of the north and the French speakers of Wallonia in the south. There are also some pockets of German speakers residing in the east towards the German border.

The 3 main regions of Belgium are visually very different too. The Flemish or Flanders region covers the North of the country and includes the cities of Antwerp, Ghent, Leuven and Bruges, while the Walloon region covers the south with its largest cities being Charleroi, Liege, Namur and Mons. Brussels, the capital marks the meeting of the two.

Ferries connect the North of England with Belgium providing a great way of arriving on the continent from Northern England with minimal driving. Crossings are year round and operated by modern cruise ferries. Ferry crossings from the south of England (usually to Ostend) are often revived but nothing permanent is available currently.

If you are travelling from England, especially from the south, then it may be more convenient to get to Belgium by travelling to a port in France or Holland.

Belgium reviews

  • "Total satisfaction"

    we had priority boarding and were literally the first car on board the ferry. We then decided to have 2 English breakfasts. Excellent value for money. There were staff members continually clearing the tables after the passengers had finished their breakfast. We usually travel with another shipping company but will definitely change in the future to P & O.

  • "Annoyed "

    The journey out was as expected fine great staff all very well organised. Cabin was fine Montreal complaints. Well maybe the chefs should go on a retraining program bland and not appetizing dishes My annoyance is not being able to alter the return journey date. Due to flights times we were unable to make the return journey resulting in extra expense staying overnight and alternative travel expenses.

  • "Excellent trip!"

    We were quite surprised when we discovered the size of our Club Cabin: it was larger than expected and was excellent value for our family of 5! We have appreciated the two windows with sea view, the comfortable bathroom with shower and large towels, the minibar and the good beds. Food in ‘the Kitchen’ was also better than expected. Both for diner and breakfast we found buffets with offering a very wide choice of tasty food. Our 3 children loved it!

  • "A competent service"

    P&O provided a competent service for the Dover/Calais crossing. The range of food available could have been been wider, however.
