Sail away to Amsterdam

  • DFDS have won the World’s Leading Ferry Operator accolade for twelve years running.
  • Their stylish and comfortable ferries depart from the International Passenger Terminal in North Shields, near Newcastle, with DFDS buses offering passenger connections from Newcastle Central Station.


  • This Big Deal is for two people to go on a two night mini-cruise to Amsterdam from Newcastle, with breakfast included on the outbound journey, on various dates from January to March 2024.
  • Children up to the age of three can travel for free and can occupy a two-berth cabin, alongside two adults.
  • Mini-cruise passengers depart North Shields at 5pm for an overnight cruise to Amsterdam. After a relaxing rest in your ensuite cabin, the ferry arrives at IJmuiden where coaches will transfer you to central Amsterdam.
  • You will have around five hours to explore Amsterdam. Choose from the culture of the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh collection, the colourful sights of the old city centre, a scenic stroll by the canals, or the chic boutiques and bars of the Jordaan.
  • There is also an abundance of places to eat and drink, from traditional pubs to trendy bars and thousands of restaurants from all corners of the globe. Sample Amsterdam’s favourite restaurant staple, the traditional Indonesian rijstaffel.
  • The return coach will take you back to the port from Amsterdam.

Enjoy onboard entertainment

  • For many travellers, the ferry crossing itself is a major part of the fun. DFDS vessels on the Newcastle to Amsterdam crossing offer the chance to settle into a seat and enjoy the latest movies in the intimate cinema, relax in the coffee shop or enjoy a drink and live music show.
  • There are two onboard restaurants to choose from, with menus to suit most preferences and budgets. These are available to reserve in advance when making your booking.
  • Shopping opportunities on board include great deals on fashion, perfume, wines, spirits and tobacco products. Enjoy duty free savings on your return to the UK.
