Mini cruise from Newcastle to Amsterdam £30 with DFDS Seaways
Found 12th OctFound 12th Oct
Price based on 2 people sharing, return. Selected departures until 29 Dec. Book by 14 Dec.

You sleep on the ferry 2 nights and I love Amsterdam so I'm going to call it a cruise :-) Wouldn't thank you for a trip on one of the big cruise ships that travel round ruining small island economies with a load of people who think they have made it because they spent £8k on a holiday lol


A long ferry crossing is now marketed as a mini cruise? Can I interest you in tickets to the London M25 slow car parade? Perhaps the Heathrow cavity check? Free background checks included and the opportunity to upgrade to the intensive conversation package. Or maybe my patented wallet weight loss plan? How secure is your internet banking? We can test it!


Oh I do like a smoke and a pancake <3


Watch out for the onboard Maritime data roaming charges!!!


one watch out at this time of year is they often dont get any time to get off the ship, due to weather making the trip across quite slow.

Worked for me! :-)


doesn't work for me




Thanks, I saved £25 and earned 444 nectar points+ £5.25 from TopCashback <3


I have just tried this code and it gave me 25% off a return trip from Dover to Calais for this August. Saved me £29.75, plus 178 nectar points, and maybe Topcashback of a few quid (might not get this as I used a code not authorized by TCB). Anyway very happy. So heat added. (y) Update: Topcashback also tracked at £6.56, so fingers crossed for that too.

@Chanchi32 This code isn't working for some reason. Is there another one that can be used? :)


Or throw it straight over the side and cut out the middle man...


If you're wondering what Newcastle is like, check out "Geordie Shore" on Youtube.


I’ve been in this ferry in November with a toddler for a Saturday trip. For kids there is a ball pit, painting, card games also someone from staff. She gave a soft toy to take home. My experience was good and we enjoyed every bit in Amsterdam and ferry. I heard going on Friday night is not a good idea for families with young children.


I went on one of these in winter everyone was being sick it was exactly like that video terrified

Wish i knew if my VW transporter is classed as a car or van. Vans are £119 each way :( but the Transporter was converted into a disabled vehicle and has PLG on the V5 doc.

Great price for summer sailings. Managed to get an £85 return in last years sale and enjoyed the trip. Would definitely do this route again.

My idea of hell - travelling 40 odd hours for 2 hours there - crazy!




Perhaps because your car was there? (skeptical)


We did this in October, was fine sailing out, coming back we had level 8 gail force winds, i felt awful. Personally you dont get long enouigh in amsterdam.


Flights can be had for around £100 return pp though. To be honest, if you're going from Newcastle, you'd be best looking at going somewhere further afield that requires a change in Amsterdam and have a long 8 or so hour layover. You have the same amount of time in Amsterdam then. They should really do a one night stay in Amsterdam as well as the 2 nights on the boat, an extra £30-40 and it'd be so much better and worth it.

Loved these cheap deals when I lived up that way and worked at Longbenton. Had a great laugh getting tanked on the ferry then floating round the dam for the day and overnight boat back. Yes it's quicker to fly but the ferry makes it more relaxing

You hire people for the half term? (highfive)


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!

Can anyone tell me how to enter the groupon code. It says invalid ....


I wish to book departure on 2 Nov, how will I know that the date is available for family of 4


If you're going for the Christmas markets, Bruges beats Amsterdam, hands down! I love both cities, and live very close to the DFDS terminal in North Shields, but in prep for Christmas, it would be Bruges for me, and it's cheaper for everything. P&O are usually very reasonable for bringing the car (probably not on this offer) - and DFDS is not. Hope for a calm crossing - Went on 30th Dec a few years ago to stay in Amsterdam a few days to see in New Year (which was great), but the outward journey was like the Poseidon Adventure - 1/2 an hour after leaving the Tyne, half the people on the ship were spewing their guts up (me included). Look for the ye olde pub in Bruges that has a beer menu the size of a phone book - around 450 beers on the go.




The code on the old deal has expired, this is a new code which also works on other deals as included in the OP :D

What is night time to them




But I can't go back in time, so that makes this a good deal.


I'll do the maths for you: £29 rtn = £14.50 e/w - good deal! £30 one way = more than double the old PO offer. I know it's an abstract concept but I've done my best to explain.


Used DFDS year before last having used Brittany Ferries in the past. My only advice is take a pack lunch with you. The food on the crossing is the very worst microwave meals and hideously expensive.

You can do that anywhere in the UK too much cheaper. Way overpriced Amsterdam and once you have been there twice you have sort of done it and have no need to return.

No need there's free seating


Daft question, do you have to book a cabin? If you don't is there sufficient seating?


Voted hot for the stupid calais remarks by some.


I've done Calais a few times this year actually. that nightmare journey was at night so I suppose it was my fault for travelling at that time? Any I don,t need that hassle and my preference is this route, yours is clearly Calais- each to their own. Hopefully this deal will help some, clearly not you!


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

Good price but it's nowhere near enough city time, one time I went there was a problem and people were left with one hour in the city.

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.


I'm sure as a Wallsend lad called monkeyhanger your a real upstanding citizen! I haven't been searched but I have seen it happen on my only trip. I don't believe what your saying and neither should anyone else.


In my experience I have never been searched nor seen anyone else searched on embarkation, on many trips there - what is completely wrong about sharing my experiences? Maybe you just look a bit shifty? They should only be concerned with you drinking booze they haven't supplied when in their bars.


Really? I've flown several times to Amsterdam and would never ever go on the boat again. They do search you, maybe not every person but I have seen it happen with my own eyes so for you to just say outright "no" is completely wrong.


Done that trip more than a dozen times (live less than 2 miles from the terminal) and never been searched for booze, nor have anyone I have ever travelled with.

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.

All night, but you're asleep for most of it.


How long does that ferry journey take on the cold north sea?


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


I've done this mini cruise 3 times now plus 1 time with a night in hotel. great price the dearest I've ever paid was 40. people complain about only 5 hours but where else can you go for a city with 2 nights accommodation for 30 quid! would cost me 30 quid just the journey to and from Newcastle!
