Short Breaks

Take a short break to Amsterdam, sailing with us between the UK and Holland and spending one or more nights in a hotel. We have a range of city breaks available via our mini cruise trips.

On a cruise & stay break you book your own accommodation in Amsterdam and on a hotel break your hotel stay is included in the package. Our Amsterdam short breaks offer the perfect getaway from Newcastle to Holland!

Alternatively, spend a short break in France, exploring the towns of Dunkirk and Calais or further afield. Take advantage of our exclusive rates with our partner hotels and attractions to make the most of your trip!

You can even shop Duty Free onboard or at our stores in Calais and Dunkirk and save up to 50% vs UK high street prices.
