    1. Hi Oluremi

      Thank you for getting in touch. Unfortunately I would need a little more information to complete this quote? When are you looking to travel? How long are you travelling for? Can you be flexible with times for travel, or ticket types? As a rough approximation, two foot passenger in July for a single journey, prices would start from £255. I hope this helps.

  1. thank you. Do you have mini breaks in Amsterdam consisting of 2 nights in Amsterdam including crossing and hotel please?

    1. Hi David

      Thank you for getting in touch.

      The closest package deal, would be a DFDS Mini Cruise (Newcastle – Amsterdam). This has an overnight crossings on the ferry, with 5 hours to spend in the city of Amsterdam. Before returning home via another overnight crossing. I’ve linked it for you to have a look at.

      I don’t think this really covers what you are looking for. To me it sounds like you want two days in Amsterdam to explore. All this would have to be booked separately. But can easily be done through Ferryto.EU:

      1) Book ferry crossings Newcastle – Amsterdam Return.
      2) Book hotel in Amsterdam.

      I Hope this helps.

  2. To let you know if ever you return , behind Amsterdam train station there is a fast boat service, same as buses but on the canal. it departs every 30 min. to ijmuiden
    and costs 5euro,it is also a lovely drive. it stops about 1.5 mile from DFDS ferry terminal..so you may need to take a taxi from there..but it allows much more flexibility…

  3. We (a coach load from work) have just returned this morning from a mini cruise to amsterdam and we were discussing on the coach back to Ripon how it would have been better to have stayed in amsterdam at least 1 night as the 4 hours we had due to the dutch gangway being inoperable on our disembarking losing us an hour, we didnt have enough time to see and experiance the city as much as we would have liked with worrying about catching the bus back in time for the return sail. we were a mixed bunch, some liking to party late while others wanted to be fresh for the city visit on the Saturday. i was lucky to be sharing a 2 berth with a young girl who wanted to be with her mates which meant i had the room to myself for relaxation just before turning in about 11pm. ship prices were in line with the city of amsterdam’s which in turn were in line i think with our capital london. all in all i think the crew were very helpful and friendly and the security people wont suffer fools gladly. definately going to look into a longer trip next time, save and prepare for that time.
