Cruise Description

3 Night France & Belgium cruise departing roundtrip from Harwich onboard Black Watch.

Join Black Watch on an emotive short break, specifically timed to visit France and Belgium on Remembrance weekend. These historic nations have seen many wars and battles over the years; and you can remember the fallen with calls into two beautiful cities, from where you can visit infamous battlefields and fascinating museums and memorials.

A full-day in Zeebrugge allows you time to venture into Bruges and spend the day exploring one of Europe’s prettiest and most interesting old cities. Wander the UNESCO-listed cobbled streets which wind through the city centre; admire the mix of architectural styles ranging from gothic to modern; or see the delights of this wonderful city from a different perspective on a boat ride along the canals. Alternatively join a tour to nearby Ypres and visit the famous Great War battlefields; take a moment at the Menin Gate Memorial, where the Last Post is played every evening as a mark of respect; and learn about Belgium’s role in World War One at the superb In Flanders Fields Museum.

On Remembrance Sunday you’ll dock in Boulogne-Sur-Mer, one of Britain’s most important base ports in the Great War. Be sure to visit one of many war cemeteries in and around the city to pay your respects to those who lost their lives in battle – a unique experience on this emotional day. You’ll also have the chance to explore the narrow, café-lined streets of Boulogne in search of many historic monuments, such as the Gothic church of St. Nicholas, medieval castle and the UNESCO-listed Belfry from the 12th century.
