DFDS’s most popular short break is the famous Amsterdam mini cruise. Sailing from Newcastle, you’ll spend 2 nights onboard a modern, comfortable and well-equipped cruise ferry, plus the best part of a day in Amsterdam, exploring the Dutch capital. If you’d like to extend your stay, you can also book a packaged hotel break which includes 1 or more nights in one of their specially-selected Amsterdam hotels, or even book a cruise & stay break, where you book your crossing and coach transfers with DFDS and then book your own hotel.
There are also themed mini cruises on offer, including Halloween and Christmas market breaks, as well as trips to Haarlem, Keukenhof Gardens and Amsterdam Zoo. Alternatively, take your car across the North Sea and explore the continent yourself. For those who live in the south of England, there are up to 60 sailings between the UK and France, with prices starting from just £39 each way for a car plus up to 9 people, so you can hop across the Channel quickly, conveniently but, most importantly, at a fantastic price.
