The Newcastle Amsterdam mini-cruise has attracted enthusiastic reviews from people who have sailed with DFDS:
‘If you have a couple of days for a break, I can’t think of a better trip, offering tremendous value for money as well as a chance to explore one of Europe’s most culturally diverse cities. The boat is child friendly with kids clubs as well as two cinemas, numerous eating options, gaming machines, bingo, a casino and a night club as well as more sedate options, a quieter bar, live music… Your break starts the moment you arrive at the port.’
‘Great little trip. Amsterdam is lovely and the trip over was great the ship was pretty good for its size and food was lovely too. Would use again and recommend to all.’
If you have always wanted to see Amsterdam, this Big Deal with DFDS offers a comfortable and convenient way to travel to this famous city.
