Got two adults two kids for £71 for oct half term bargain. Many thanks


You hire people for the half term?

Ive done this trip a good few times (the terminal is only 5 minutes from my house)........YES there is a duty free shop on the boat and it stocks the usual cigs, tobacco, perfumes ,,,drink etc.....

One tip, take some cans with you as the bar proces have jumped up......buy a legit drink at the bar and then go for a wander outside for a cig....then come back with your glass full, if you get my drift

Transfers from the ferry terminal to Amsterdam cost more than the crossing!

Yup! Been on this boat 20+ times. Everytime has been an absolute hoot!

I almost prefer the time on the boat than I do the 3-4 hours you get in Amsterdam.

EDIT: Don't be put off tho. There's plenty of stuff to keep the kids entertained. Not sure if Vicky The Pirate is still on it but she used to take all the kids around the boat and keep them amused.

We went earlier on this year midweek and it was very pleasant. I think if you go Friday or Saturday it maybe a different, but you also won't get the cheap prices then either. Food is expensive on board, but we thought the drinks prices were just about normal pub prices so not too bad. As I have said in a previous post watch out for the Maritime phone coverage. We were charged £120 for my wife and 2 kids who's phone's accidently latched onto their signal and Facebooked for around 5 mins!

Think you've been watching to many TVs programs.all this apparently only started this year and as you put the same deal on last year you clearly haven't been through Calais this year. Looking at pictures and getting someone to read the daily mail is fair enough. If you drive a wagon on the the back roads past the jungle at 3am with a TVs film crew in tow what do you expect. Drive the normal routes into Calais port and you will see police patrols every 500 yards

So you've been on the ferry once and claim to have seen it happen, therefore it happens all the time? They have no need to search your bags upon entry to the ship for booze. They do have reason to stop you drinking your own booze in their bars, but you could take what you liked on board and drink it in your own cabin if you so wished. Wallsend? No, other side of the Royal Quays - there you go making assumptions again.

So you go to Amsterdam, go shopping, get a few bottles of rare/unusual Belgian beers to bring home, and board the ferry for the return journey - are they going to search your bags and confiscate it? Don't talk rubbish.

Never seen them that cheap without Tesco vouchers!

Managed to get our ferry for three weeks' time cheaper by using the P&O Daily Mail promotion (ewww) and getting a £22 return 'overnight' fare from Dover to Calais. We're just not using the return leg, and then we're coming back from Dunkerque via DFDS. Slightly convaluted but got peak time fares for £66 return!

I've crossed with P&O a few times for less than £25 return. DFDS seems to be consistently significantly more expensive offers or not. Why would anyone bother with them?

Thanks! Just booked for about £40 less than the prices last week.

I got flights and hotel for £200 for 4 nights in Amsterdam (10th - 14th january). I'd much rather go for four nights and pay £100 each than £39 for 5 hours and the flight is only 80 minutes

Not a bad deal in my opinion, with Half Term dates available as well!

sounds like a ferry crossing with a few extras. not sure if this is actually a special deal or not, so not voting.

Only departure is from Newcastle so you have to add that to the journey as well. Two daily sailing in rough seas on a cold day on a 1 hr flight from a local airport. Know which one I would chose and flights can be found very cheap. Although Amsterdam is the main airport in Holland there are other small airports dotted around the country depending on which place you want to visit. The flower fields are so amazing but a bit early yet, night clubbers go to Amsterdam and the typical Dutch villages are great places. Having lived there for 12 years I have probably seen it all but wouldn't mind going back again for a short trip. The Dutch are quite friendly compared to other places and I so fancy a patat special (chips special) to those who don't know is a portion of chunky chips served in a cone and topped with mayo, ketchup, raw chopped onions, hot peanut sauce and maybe some spicy brown sauce or if you are really brave try some of the raw fish but you have to be dutch to be able to slick it down in one go!!! Keep the cameras ready for a bit of fun. There are also many other attractions to visit in Holland so worth staying a few days. Don't forget you will need Euros and anyone without an EU passport will also require a visa.
Edited by: "googley2" 1st Feb 2015

The visiting time in Amsterdam is the secondary aim of this trip on DFDS ferries - primarily it's 2 nights out in a floating bar, if you know this upfront then you won't be disappointed.

My partner went on a trip like this with her family. They had a horrible time. Sea sickness, very little time in Amsterdam, you spend nearly 2 days on a horrible ferry and very little time there. Worst "holiday" they had ever been on. You have been warned.

Still they paid a damn sight more than this so not knocking the deal!

I see the DFDS Ferry passing my living room window every evening on its way out of the Tyne - it was extremely late coming in today - rough seas last night! Was on a particularly rough crossing in Dec 2011, and I managed to get one pint in before I was spewing my guts up. Bad all night. On a calm crossing it can be a laugh on the ship, but i'd rather take a KLM flight from Newcastle airport in the winter for about £70 each way and stay over.

Can take your own food and drink as long as it's drank in your room (so simply go back to your room to fill your class with vodka)

Just been on Tuesday, we took own food and mini fridge nothing was said know your not allowed eating and drinking your own in public areas. We didn't know we were at sea it was that calm

Could anyone that had taken this confirm that you can take your own food?Do they check your bags?

Thanks

A regular deal in the quiet season (try getting those prices July/August). I live 2 miles from the DFDS ferry and have used it regularly - wouldn't chance it this time of the year though. If the sea is rough there's nothing worse. I have a cast-iron stomach, yet I was chucking up my first and only pint of the night within 10 mins of the ship leaving the Tyne on a particularly rough crossing.

This trip is more about 2 nights out on the ship rather than the trip to Amsterdam which will generally see you there only 5 and a half hours. The entertainment is so bad that it's good (think Phoenix nights).

this place is right at the border.

Don't know how, but they always have cheaper diesel.
For comparison I use: http://www.prix-carburants.gouv.fr/
Carrefour is the cheapest but you if ever find yourself around the area, check them out, you will be surprised

Cigarette prices are regulated in Belgium, so there won't be much variation between shops. But some give a good exchange rate if you pay in pounds.

As for fuel, I'm surprised the diesel price is better than France. Taxes mean average Belgian diesel is about €1.45 /l compared to €1.30 /l in France.

yes, and the ships in it

My Wife and I actually looked into this a while back when looking for Cruise Deals. This is, in my opinion a complete waste of time and money. I work Off-Shore on Oil Rigs and these floating Trucks have nothing like the standard we have off-shore in Norway and after 14 days Im bored outta my mind. Unless you plan on writing a book (like previously mentioned) then dont bother. If you do plan on writing a book save yourself a grand and do it at home then reward yourself with a real cruise.

We just booked a deal where we cruise around Italy with a night in a 4 star hotel in Venice on the first night and oebn at the end of a 15 day cruise and flights included for 1100. Two years ago we got a cracking deal with P&O. two weeks Caribbean Cruise with flights for a grand each, even better when kids went free!

The problem is, you and many others are comparing this to a holiday … The problem is, you and many others are comparing this to a holiday cruise and they are simply not comparable in that sense (financial or much else really). Prices of apples differ from Orange prices because they are different fruits... I would never go on a tourist cruise and I would never go on a package holiday. I have no problem with people that do, vive La Différence, I just fail to see why this thread is concerned with package cruises when this most certainly isn't. Maybe the op should have described it differently in his title.



You are quite correct, they are different. I think people are making the comparison because the OP did in the blurb at the beginning.
