Used this service numerous times, can't complain for the price. Only annoyance is the spamming of announcements over speaker at 5.30ish in the morning telling you the breakfast bar will soon be open, that and kids running up and down the hallway unsupervised.
Its a great deal that is on every year the past several years. I keep considering it but the Bruges and Rotterdam deals are the best, because to get to Amsterdam you have a 2 hour coach trip each way in the same day.

If you want meals onboard, I thought you can book them and pay at once before the trip so they work out cheaper? If you don't buy them when you book and have one they are more expensive.

I've been to on this many times, its fantastic.... however the food on board is not only dreadful its vastly overpriced. Same goes for the drinks at the bar.
How do you book this trip for March? .... clicked the link only seems to be available till the end of January.

So, will it be ok to bring food aboard?
Would you recommend a sick bag for the combination of the dreadful on board food and the choppy North sea ? Never sailed during winter
A cruise from Hull to Rotterdam?

How ineffably glamorous! Remember to dress up appropriately.

On the other hand, this sounds like a barely tarted up ferry/booze cruise without the cheap booze. Not for me, but somebody must be keen to see upside down houses and a city centre that is deserted after 5:30pm.
I think the Bruges isn't available anymore? Shame, I wanted to treat my grandma for her birthday and would prefer not to go to Amsterdam as knowing my luck I'd take a wrong turn and end up in the red light district.
Iv been on a few of these as I live in Hull. The offer runs from around October to March every year, although online it gives you no option to book for any dates other than January ( phone them up to book if wanting other dates). Meals on board are all you can eat buffet, but as someone already pointed out, are expensive. Eat before you board at one of the numerous restaurants or pubs around the area. No snacks available on board last time I went, so take some with you crisps ect., because if your peckish later on in the night after a drink there is nothing available, and i mean NOTHING. Bars dont sell crisps even.
Chavtastic, they're out in they're their masses on these ships
I love how they use cruise in the title........its a car ferry, across the north sea in the middle of winter. Lovely.
Some right stuck up people on here. The irony that they are posting on a deals forum. Try to be all posh whilst still looking for deals. Hypocrites.
I go to Amsterdam on these deals every now and then with the wife. The bus trip to the city from the port is 45 minutes, not the 2 hours that someone has mentioned. Food and rink are overpriced on the boat as they have a captive market. I normally grab a sandwich in town before getting on the ferry and have that on board. Last time I travelled was about a year ago and it was about £3 a pint, not cheap but not crazy expensive either.

Good deal anyway.
My girlfriend and I went to Brugge with a couple of friends on this deal over Christmas. The crossing was fine, we had a lovely day in Brugge and the bar prices were surprisingly reasonable - 3 pints (Becks Vier) and a J2O for £12.50. And whist on board, I snapped up over £180 of aftershave in gift sets for 92 quid. Good timea were had by all.

Yeah I don't remember that being a problem at all, just don't forget to buy something for the way back!

45 minutes? It has to be longer as I said, well over an hour.

I have driven in a car and its at least 50 miles from the centre of Rotterdam to the centre of Amsterdam. Much of it is motorway, but its still at least an hour by car. The europoort where you actually leave from is further away and a coach is slower. It its any faster than an hour and 20 minutes by coach I'll eat my hat.
Me and the OH recently done this. Absolute amazing value for money, although only got around 5 hours in Amsterdam. Still, under £50 each for two nights away and 5 hours in another country is a hot deal from me. Heat added
You can book feb/march - there are links at the top to change the month you want... (Search for "When:")

No mate, being rich means spending your money wisely, on decent stuff.
Just got a deal from Thomas cook for 2 people that I think made use of this.
£100 each and includes a day in roterdam, then coach to and overnight stay in a hotel in Amsterdam, then return to roterdam that evening to get ferry back.
I thought it seemed really cheap, but with this deal on the ferries it all makes sense.
First time on one of these holidays for me and its a cheap break away to relax so I think an excellent way to spend my hard earned money

Yeah I think Heed is mistaken sort of - the ferry doesnt stop in amsterdam despite it being advertised - it stops in rotterdam then you got a coach journey to amsterdam

saying that this deal was alot cheaper when it was posted back in November

I might have to give them a call to make sure - £500 for 8 people is coming a bit high per person

Another tip for those of you that smoke, If you want to buy cigarettes, buy them behind the bars onboard as they work out far cheaper per pack than buying a 200 pack sleeve in the duty free shop. The difference in price is well worth having the inconvenience of loose packets

IJmuiden is indeed right on the doorstep but this being P and O, they will go to their europoort terminal. Its gotta be over 60 miles from europoort to the centre of amsterdam.

You wouldn't it's very seperate and well illuminated as u enter what you are entering xxx
You dont have to call them up to book for March or February. On the same line as the January tab, you have to click on Feb Or March to access those months and book your preferred dates. Its not hidden.
just wondering whether the offer will still be available to book in March?
