No, its a proper cruise ship !
It looks lovely. Great deal. Will have to figure out the logistics. Thanks for posting
I personally can't see the deal, or the point?

If it includes food (which I can't see in the link) it's still not worth it.

Driving to Edinburgh (2hrs) a hotel and a meal out would be cheaper. Cold from me.

​Live a little? I can't think when teaching a boat from Newcastle to Scotland would ever be described as "living the dream"
Is this a "swingers" cruise? Could be fun (_;)
Link doesn't work
This is a very weird deal.
It's repositioning between cruises. A fantastic old, beautiful ship with really excellent food. Drinks not too bad. Expect a booking fee and tips on top - £20pp and £5pp. iirc. More old style cruising, no kids, no climbing walls, many hate it many love it.
What kind of food they offer.....any idea...??

Yeah, you could drive, get a Travelodge and a KFC for about £3 less...!

Or you could try something a bit more unusual.
Unusual would definitely be the word people would say if you told them you went on a cruise ship from Newcastle to Edinburgh..

£59 ??? Travel Lodge and your fav burger bar ?
It's £59 pp so for £118 you only need - night in Edinburgh, 5 course meal and return petrol. Hopefully this place does food and rooms:

I entirely agree , however won't vote cold as it's not a bad price if someone fancied a boat trip ' just for the hell of it ' . The A1 though is a no brainer for me
I'm guessing they have a cruise that ends in Newcastle and the next one starts from Edinburgh so it's a good way for them to get the vessel up and get a few quid in

You'll have the choice of either a buffet or a sit down five course meal which imo can't be beaten, much like in a very expensive hotel, plushish surroundings and table settings. Pointless going on this if you go for the buffet! And afterwards go for a westend(ish) show - we thought the entertainment was excellent, although others moaned about it. And after that go to the bar where usually there'll be a piano or guitar player and singer - really good unless your expectations are unrealistic.

It's real cruising, totally unlike a car ferry 'cruise'.

uhmmm, never anymore. I see Schettinos commanders everywhere.
Might get a bird. Just like love boat. X)
Terrible deal. Just book cheap advance train or megabus. You can easily get 1st class train each way, a hotel and meals for about the same. And have two full days looking round Edinburgh.

It's a taster session to make you consider going on a proper longer cruise another time. I don't get why people find it so difficult to understand suggesting it's a waste of money or that you can travel by car etc etc etc. Get a grip ... people **** up money on all sorts of things. This is a good deal.

Even better, jog there instead, costs next to nowt. Stop at Tescos on the way for a couple of value rolls and a tub of marge, and that's the weekend food sorted. A great weekend for about 68p.
I tried to book this months ago and it was sold out so they put me on the waiting list, its well worth the money if you work out a return train from Newcastle plus your hotel in Edinburgh, five course meal, entertainment and snacks/tea/coffee almost 24 hours and the experience of a real cruise ship. Gets into edinburgh at 8am so you get a full day in Edinburgh and a train back to Newcastle for about £12 each. What is the entertainment itinerary on a megabus?
ooh, sounds like a lovely night away. Just a shame I'm in Devon, so bit of a long trek for me oO heat added
