Taking a coach across to Europe from the UK is a great way to explore the continent and, thanks to our daily, overnight ferry crossings, it’s convenient and great value. A ferry to Holland gives convenient access to the Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium, as well as further afield to Scandinavia and eastern Europe.
We firmly believe that our guest’s holidays begin the moment they set foot onboard our ferries. We aim to please, and offer a variety of bars, shops and other facilities to keep everyone entertained throughout their voyage with us.
Lounge in comfort, or enjoy some live music and entertainment in a fun and friendly atmosphere at our onboard bars, with our resident band and acoustic troubadour to entertain.
We also have a range of interactive quizzes, bingo and more and even a Kidz’ Club where young buccaneers can meet our mascot, Jack the Pirate, while playing and having fun with the free children’s entertainer.
With 2 restaurants and a fantastic café, you are sure to find something you love on our ships. Head to the Explorers Kitchen all-you-can-eat world-food buffet, with over 80 dishes from all corners of the globe or sample the à la carte menu at North Sea Bistro. Explorers Kitchen also boasts a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast, serving up cooked classics as well as continental options.
Our onboard café, Coffee Crew, offers Starbucks® hot drinks, including favourites such as the popular Frappuccino. It’s located right by the play area, making it the perfect place for parents to relax while the kids run wild.
