Port to get to England

What I recall of Oostende is that it was from here that we caught the worst ferry ride of my life! We took the ferry from Oostende to Dover (and a few weeks later back again). The crossing started out fine and we had a nice little meal on the ferry. Some distance into the crossing the sea got rough, everything slid around on the ferry, and most people (but not me) got sick. You could not even go to the bathroom because so many had thrown up. I was glad to get to Dover. Still -- I will be happy to do this again!

    Despite the wind, this is one town in Belgium I've not been and look forward to visiting. Thanks
