This morning we woke up early so that we could make it to our shore excursion on time … and realized that we were sitting at anchor off of Zeebrugge with a bunch of freighters. Apparently the pilots were a bit concerned about the rough seas and didn’t want to make the transfer to any ship, so we were all stuck here. It’s now 9:30 AM and we finally got our pilot — it looks like we’ll be visiting Brugge today anyway, although a wee bit late.
We’re using the shipboard Internet, of course. This time we found out that the cruise line is doing an unlimited plan for $375 per person. While that sounds expensive, it’s actually less than we spent in the past on hourly plans. The speed is actually quite good as well.
