MSC luxury cruise liners travel to Belgium during our Ocean Voyages cruise itineraries and the country has much to offer cruising holidaymakers. Home to many beautiful historic cities including Bruges, Antwerp, the capital, Brussels and Ghent, Liege and Ypres, home to the war graves of WWI. Paris is also within easy reach, as it is just 80 minutes travel from Belgium and you can look forward to delicious cuisine such as mussels and French waffles as well as locally-brewed beer, a tradition that dates back to the Trappist monasteries of the Middle Ages and the fine Belgian choccolate.
Belgium has an extremely strong artistic heritage; famous masters include the 15th century painter Van Eyck, Brueghel and the Baroque artist, Peter Paul Rubens. More contemporary artists include Hervé, the famous author of the celebrated ‘Tintin’ books.
In Belgium tourists can find the ‘essence of Europe’; so let MSC Cruises surprise you with a discovery of this lesser-known European country that deserves to be as celebrated as its neighbours.
