Newcastle - Amsterdam New Ship Information
We regret to inform our customers that the planned acquisition of new ships for our Newcastle-Amsterdam route will not go-ahead.
In September we entered into an agreement with the Italian ferry company Moby to acquire two ferries, Moby Wonder and Moby Aki, for deployment on the Amsterdam-Newcastle route.
The agreement was expected to be completed in the second half of October 2019, but Moby has unfortunately not been able to meet the delivery terms of the agreement. We're disappointed to share with you that the agreement has therefore been cancelled.
We will continue to explore solutions for a renewal of the ferries on the Amsterdam-Newcastle route in line with our customers’ wishes and our ambitions for the route.
Both King and Princess Seaways will remain in service. Customers will be able to continue to book crossings on the route as normal and we will be working hard to ensure all of our products and services will be available to book for 2020.
