Relaxed surroundings, fine dining, wine tasting and live entertainment are what you expect to find in a premium hotel. On a DFDS crossing you get all of this and more. Enjoy a selection of bars for a casual drink, a range of restaurants for a bite to eat, a cinema to catch the latest release, and even an onboard nightclub to dance the night away. Visit the shop to save up to 30% versus high street prices and why not head out on deck to catch the sunset as you sail to Amsterdam?
As the night closes in, your comfortable en suite cabin will be waiting for you. Rest your head on freshly pressed linen, unwind and relax in your oasis of calm onboard your overnight crossing.

With premium and sea view upgrades available, plus pet friendly cabins, you can sail in comfort and class onboard the Newcastle-Amsterdam crossing with DFDS.
A short break in Amsterdam is amazing in any season. The autumn brings out the copper colours of the trees which line the famous canals and the spring sees the blooming of the famous flower fields surrounding the capital. Stroll the city’s streets, taking in the historic buildings, winding waterways and myriad of museums. Sample some local cuisine washed down with the delicious Dutch spirit, genever and immerse yourself in the nightlife of the vibrant city. In December and January see the city alight in the annual Amsterdam Light Festival and in March spring arrives in the city bringing with it beautiful blooms and alfresco dining.
With a short break you can afford to see more of Amsterdam and wider Holland. Why not hire bikes and explore the city like a local, cycling through some of the city’s parks like Vondelpark, Westerpark or Oosterpark? Head to Haarlem in just under half an hour by train from Amsterdam to see world famous art, great shopping and vibrant nightlife. Or if you fancy a trip to the coast, in just 30 minutes you can get to Zandvoort, where you can stroll beautiful beaches, visit the natureparks located there and for motorsports fans the Circuitpark Zandvoort is another highlight.
