All DFDS Mini Cruises
Our mini cruise breaks are our most popular breaks, and it’s easy to see why. Not only do you get to spend time in a fantastic city, but you’ll also be treated to 2 nights onboard our modern, comfortable and well-equipped cruise ferries.
Our mini cruises are the perfect combination of a short city break and a cruise experience.
Spend the day in Amsterdam visiting the famous Christmas markets, trying a spot if ice-skating on Rembrandtplein and craning your neck to see the 60ft Christmas tree in the heart of the city on Dam Square. Make your trip extra special with a canal cruise through the city’s winding waterways, taking in the beautiful bridges bedecked with lights and the grand buildings which line the canals.
