m.s. King of Scandinavian or m.s Princess of Norway
Our 2-night mini cruise to Amsterdam is our our best-selling product. You get the combination of a great short city break and fun on board as we sail you to your Amsterdam and back home again. The value for money of these breaks is also second to none. Because we sail overnight, youll have a great night out on board, enjoy a good nights sleep and then arrive in port next day refreshed and ready for your time ashore. You will spend aprox 5 hours in Amsterdam which is plenty of time see the sights at your leisure. Later in the day, its time to head back to the ship for the evening sailing, where theres more entertainment in-store

Choose to explore the canals and tree lined streets, enjoy a drink at a canal side cafe and watch the world go by or take in one of the 40 museums this cultural city has to offer, visit the famous house of Ann Frank, take in the Van Gogh museum or visit the new Hermitage exhibition.

When you arrive in Holland, you are escorted onto waiting coaches for the short transfer into the city centre, where you can either stay on the coach for a sightseeing tour of this captivating city, or explore Amsterdam for yourselves.

Return coach transfers are included. Transfer from Ijmuiden to Amsterdams city centre takes about 30 minutes.

Yes, per person prices based on 2 adults sharing,
#4
what if someone wants to stay longer?
#5
If you book direct through dfds you can arrange to stay longer but it costs LOADS more. Ive been on this trip before it does say a 30 minute bus ride to central amsterdam. Try 2 hours for us when we went due to the main tunnel being closed so all the traffic was diverted through the city centre we only ended up with about 3 or 4 hours in amsterdam.
#6
Is it very expensive on board the ship? thinking about getting this for OHs birthday :)
[helper]#7
This seems cheap but its a waste of time unless you add a night in a hotel. Its really not worth it for 3-4 hours in Amsterdam. Also there is very little choice for vegetarians in the on board buffet.

Yes!
#9
Not even worth eating on board its so expensive when we went a year or two ago we loaded up on greggs before we went and tried to find food in amsterdam for the return journey (not that easy or cheap.)

Where did you get 3-4 hours from??

arrives 09.30 // Departs 17.30

Thats 8 hours less 2 x 20min bus journeys
#11
Think they were referring to the fact that id ended up with 3-4 hours because of the traffic situation. No way even with very little traffic (which there will be loads of because of the times you travel to and from amsterdam) that it would only take 20 minutes. In all honesty theres not a great deal to do in amsterdam so probably 3-4 hours was enough.
#12
This is excellent!
My birthday is next month so about time for a lads only holiday!

Great find, many thanks!

Dock at Ijmuiden 9.30 takes till 10 to get off ship/go through customs. You then get on bus and wait for the usual idiot who is late. Takes longer than 20 mins from Ijmuiden into Amsterdam so your talking about 11is arrival into Amsterdam. The buses then start departing back to the ship about 3-3.30 ish from the drop off point. (so about 4 hours in Amsterdam centre).

we went with our then five year old, stayed on a houseboat for three days and had a fab time - the science museum was EXCELLENT. we did a lot of wandering - markets, playgrounds, etc and just stuck her in between us when we ended up in a red light district!

Umm..
Can you eat those wonderful "cakes" onboard? :) on the way to the fantasy land?

Come on guys.......we're talking about £42 here???????????? how can you be moaning about only getting five hours in Amsterdam....what about the entertainment on the boat?:roll:

You Would Spend More On A Night Out In The Uk

The entertainment on the ship is ****...

Very Phoenix nights.
#22
Mmmmm....very tempting. Bit of a drive down for us...any idea about parking availability and costs anyone please? :thinking:
#23
We've done the P&O ones before (hull to amsterdam), they are about the same price and as far as I can remember it doesnt cost anymore if you want to stay in amsterdam for a night or 2, except obviously the cost of the hotel.
#24
yes i have done both the hull to amsterdam and the newcastle to amsterdam and i must say for the money its good value.. meals on board are expensive but we just have dinner and no breakfast...4 hours or so is enough for amsterdam... its not very big place..
#25
Maybe a daft question...apart from parking costs...i notice that it's a 4 BERTH cabin...if you only book for 2 adults...what happens to the 2 'spare' beds? Do you have two Random Snorers allocated to your cabin to keep their costs down? Anyone ever done this 4 berth / 2 booked trip before please???:?
#26
Looks like my idea of Hell on Earth.

I'd rather burn £42 and stay at home.
#27
Just booked mine direct with DFDS, mid-August @ £32 each (four of us for £128), ok we've not got a porthole but hey what does the North Sea look like at night :thumbsup:

Last time i went on one of these was 10 years ago, it'll be a laugh if nothing else :-D
#28
For those asking about Parking the costs are £8 per day, more info here:

some people may prefer a porthole so when the cruel north sea acts itself they're less likely to hurl all over the opposing bunk if they have a small piece of horizon to keep an eye on.

did a similar denmark trip when i was a wee' un - my dear old departed mam used up a STACK of sick bags!!!!

£32 each thats much cheaper than the £42 quoted in thhe OP.
Edit cant find this at £128 anywhere on the DFDS site!. Cheapest was £184 for 4.

Mon 24th Aug - 4berth Inside Cabin = £76 = grand total of £128 + 6% Quidco

The orange dates are the cheapest .

Make sure you don't end up in a 4 berth with a bunch of lorry drivers kipping in there !!
#34
Does anyone know if your bags are searched getting on the boat over? Would be nice to smuggle some booze on to avoid paying high bar prices...
