DFDS Seaways Celebrates 15th Birthday of Newcastle to Amsterdam Route

DFDS Seaways is pushing the boat out to celebrate 15 years of the Newcastle to Amsterdam route this May with Mini Cruise breaks to the Dutch capital from only £39pp - the same price as when the route first launched in 1995.

The Newcastle to Amsterdam route was first sailed by m.s. Winston Churchill on 18th May 1995, and since then DFDS Seaways have transported over 5 million people and 1 million vehicles, clocked up a staggering 2,278,000 nautical miles to and from the cultural city of Amsterdam. This is the equivalent of travelling to the moon and back more than 5 times over!

Take advantage of this fantastic offer and book to go to Amsterdam. There’s plenty to do once on board. Enjoy a sumptuous meal at one of the fantastic restaurants, sit back with a coffee while the kids have fun in the kids club or visit the bar for a relaxing drink and enjoy the dazzling live entertainment.  Of course there’s nothing like the fresh sea air out on deck.

After arriving into port after a good night’s sleep in your own cosy cabin, feeling refreshed and ready to go, you will be transferred in to the city centre. Enjoy a complimentary sightseeing tour or take to the streets for your own mini adventure. Stroll around the tree lined canals, enjoy the local Dutch cuisine or simply relax in a street-side café and watch the world pass by.

Alternatively, for some art and culture visit one of the many world-class museums or galleries or tour a famous diamond polishing factory. You’ll have a great day knowing that you don’t have to rush back to the airport, but instead enjoy a relaxing cruise home with DFDS Seaways. 

Book before 31st May and enjoy this exclusive birthday offer of just £39pp for 4 sharing a 4-berth cabin and from £59pp for 2-sharing a 2-berth cabin on selected departures between May and July. This compares to normal prices of from £69pp and from £89pp.For more information or to book, visit www.dfds.co.uk/birthday or call 0871 882 0885.
