Just got an amail from Travelzoo about this.

It looks good on the face of it, but add in your meals and a decent hotel and the price quickly rockets.

I'd imagine it would be even more expensive buying your meals on board instead of prebooking them too.

I don't think it's a bad deal as such, but the £149 for 2 is misleading unless you're going to starve while you're onboard; as you're a captive audience..

The hotel price in Amsterdam is included in th £149. The hotel looks basic, but clean and for the price is pretty good.

For the amount of food you're going to eat spending two nights on the boat I hardly think its gonna make it any more than £100 each. I think you'd probably struggle to find another deal going to Amsterdam for at least a 1 night stay for less than that.

I priced the 3 star hotel, with breakfast and dinner on board the ship and it came in at £370 for 2 folk.

Obviously it's date dependent, but I could find a far better break for that kind of money rather than getting tossed about in the North Sea.

Don't buy dinner on board, it's overpriced and not that great. The breakfast is excellent though.

You can have a big lunch before leaving and just before coming back. That way a sandwich and/or a snack does in the evening.

Great deal, heat and rep

Just as a head's up, P&O do mini cruises to Amsterdam from Hull for £72 with no overnight stay or £92 for the extra night for two people, you have to add in your own hotel for that, but price would be similar they also do Quidco, we're off at the end of jan!

Good deal. My friend went on a 2 night version of this cruise which didn't include and over nighter in Amsterdam, just a day in the city. He said the food and drink prices onboard were OK. He said there was plenty of happy hour offers.

Are they still trying to sell a couple of days on a ferry in the North Sea as a 'cruise'? Trades descriptions needs to step in.

Newcastle must be an awful place if you're prepared to pay for this to get out!

As an aside, we once went a 'cruise' from Rosyth to Zebrugge with a day trip to Brugge in April.

It cost around £280. If you paid me £280 I still wouldn't go on it again. The North Sea is a god forsaken place all year round.

As I said earlier, this isn't a bad deal as such. You'd just get better value for money getting an Easyjet to Hamsterjam and staying in an Ibis for 3 nights. Better still, find a nice hotel in the Lake District.

I agree what you say except, sadly, a 'nice' hotel in the Lake District will cost an arm and a leg. Spent a few days by Ullswater in the autumn. Loved it but ripped off at every turn. I guess it's a short season and they have to make a year's income in a few months. Could have spent a week in the Med for less.

Not a bad deal. I did the 2 day cruise before and avoided eating on the ferry. You leave at 5pmish and get there 9 in morning, all you need to do is take a snack. The drink can be close to £4 a pint. All in all the ferry expereince was pants but the one night stop over makes this worthwhile. Flying to amsterdam would be better but budget in taxi (and bagage) to and from air port, and a few more nights stay, and I am not sure this can be beaten on price.

Just checked on a seaview cabin(£31)outward only, standard cabin return, two breakfasts, and dinner buffets for both journeys, came to £292, removed all the food and it still came to £175, good deal for people that dont eat, not good for a pie muncher like me!
#13
Can you not just buy some pizza or something rather than booking a buffet or 2-3 course meal? I.E. Do you have to chose a meal package to be able to eat at all? :)
#14
Not bothered about the cruise, but there's plenty of cool things to do in Amsterdam! ;)

I went on the 2 night version of this and it was the worst experience of my life....we set of at 5pm and we endured 15 hours of what felt like being on a rollercoaster! The restaurants and bars had to close as it was too dangerous and we spent all 15 hours of the trip there in our god awful cabin being sick...we got go Amsterdam and had about 5 hours at most free time...but we felt so ill we just sat in a couple of restaurants drinking coffee till they picked us up.

We were dreading the return journey so much we enquired at the airport about getting a plane home instead, but they didn't have any places left on the flight and so we had to board the boat for the dreaded trip back!...that trip was bad too...although not quite as bad as the extreme swaying only lasted 8 hours this time and they managed to open one bar up and the shop. (not to miss out on ripping a few people off with selling their overpriced tat)

So yeah...maybe we were just unlucky, but I seriously wouldn't go on another one of these even if they paid me a thousand pounds. It was 2 days of hell..no sleep for 2 nights on top of the extreme sea sickness meant it truly was a horrific encounter. It took me and the wife about 2 weeks to feel well again.

You can choose no meals at all, but like it says on the website, pre-ordering your meals saves you 25% so if you are eating onboard then it's best to order it, but if you want to save money, take sarni's :-D

'Take your own sarnies cruise' - sounds good doesn't it? Come on people, 'cruise' is a seriously misleading term. It's 2 days on an awful ferry tossed around in the north sea with rip-off food prices (assuming you're not too ill to eat). How can this possibly be appealing in any way?

Just read spensuma's experience above!

Yes it is.

I've been on this 'cruise' before using both DFDS and P&O. DFDS is the better company to go with. I was wise the second time I went taking plenty of pack lunch for the trip there. Even the pizza's, chips and other junk food is expensive. I'd advise buying food in Amsterdam as well before you get on the ship. We went as cheap as we could so, so to avoid the bar prices we bought from the duty free and drank them in the room... just to start the night off.

Overall cracking entertainment though and plenty of nationalities to talk to once everyone is jolly!
