Offers to Holland
Our Amsterdam mini cruise is our most popular short break package and it’s no surprise really. It combines 2 nights onboard our modern, comfortable cruise ferry with the best part of a day exploring Amsterdam. You’ll set sail from our port near Newcastle, sailing overnight before arriving in IJmuiden, near Amsterdam. Then we’ll whisk you to the Dutch capital in coach transfers and pick you up later on!
If you want to take your vehicle across to Europe, but live in the north of England or Scotland then you can avoid a long drive south by sailing from Newcastle to our port in IJmuiden. From there, you’ll find easy access to major destinations across Europe, including Holland, France, Belgium and Germany. This offer is available for cars, motorbikes and bicycles – simply select your vehicle type when you book.
Onboard our ferries
The voyage from Dover to France may be short, taking just 90 minutes to Calais and 2 hours to Dunkirk, but there’s plenty to do onboard to make sure your crossing is just as much fun as the rest of your break. Head to the 7 Seas restaurant or Horizon snack bar to grab a bite to eat, or the Lighthouse Café if you fancy something a little bit lighter.
