What to expect

Eat, drink and be merry onboard our overnight crossing, dancing the night away in our Columbus Club, sipping something special in our onboard bars or trying your luck in our casino. If you would prefer a quieter drink, you can listen to our solo musician in our Navigator’s Pub or Compass Bar. As the night folds into morning why not wrap up and step out on deck for a spot of star gazing in the clear skies above the North Sea. Rest your head in your en suite cabin and arrive in Amsterdam the following morning ready to explore.
