A 2-night jaunt to Zeebrugge (the port for Bruges) in Belgium is now £149 per person with this offer from Iglu Cruise. The package includes two nights on P&O's Oceana with all meals and snacks, as well as West End-style shows onboard and saves £133 on regular prices.
The 4-star ship sails from Southampton on 20 December, and visits Zeebrugge, which is a short transfer from Bruges (payable locally), before returning to dock in Southampton.

Due to undergo a £1 million refurbishment prior to this voyage, P&O's Oceana is a mid-sized ship that has a champagne bar, a traditional English pub, an outdoor grill restaurant and Café Jardin, Marco Pierre White's bistro (extra charge). Other facilities include a golf simulator, four pools and a spa.
Medieval Bruges (pictured) is one of Belgium's most popular cities and is famous for its beer. However it's not all about swilling back the local brews, Lonely Planet recommends exploring the "picturesque market squares, dreamy canals and old whitewashed almshouses". Do some last-minute shopping at the Christmas markets or skate on the canals if it's cold enough.
Other mini cruises are available in 2013 from £199 per person. The Bruges & Opera cruise from Southampton on 18 April features special guests from Britain's Got Talent during the voyage. Click here for more details.
