Bruges limits cruises

This item appears on page 4 of the August 2019 issue.

In order to reduce the number of tourists visiting Bruges, Belgium, on June 16 the city reduced the number of cruise ships allowed to dock at its port, Zeebrugge, to two at a time. The port can accommodate five large cruise ships. The city has also limited to weekdays the days on which cruise ships can dock there, eliminating dockings on Saturdays and Sundays.
