Hi we are a couple in our 70s both fit and Mobil but rubbish with computers! Wanting to book a crossing ( that we have done numerous times in the past.) Newcastle to Amsterdam.the week befor Easter returning the week after.standard car.inside cabin with double bed.what’s our best price please.
Firstly, thank you for getting in touch. I wasn’t quite sure on exact dates for “the week before Easter”. So I’ve done two quotes for you. Both include a standard cabin with a small double bed:
1) 31st March till 14th April – £697
2) 2nd April till 16th April – £595
You can see from the two couple by playing around with the exact dates you can often get a cheaper price. I’d advise you play around with the dates to get the best option.I hope this helps.
Buonasera. Il 3 Settembre vorrei prendere il traghetto da Amsterdam a NewCastle. Ho una cagnolina di 9 kg. Vaccinata e tutto in regola. Non ho capito dove può stare durante la notte. Ho anche il trasportino.

Hi, can you please tell me the price for the ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam for one person with a bicycle?

There’s an add stain £22 for foot passenger. Every time I try to book it end up £222! What’s the cheapest foot passenger return you do please, and is the journey suitable for wheelchair?

How much is it for two passengers to Amsterdam from Newcastle England
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.
thank you. Do you have mini breaks in Amsterdam consisting of 2 nights in Amsterdam including crossing and hotel please?
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.
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…
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.
