Escape this Easter with DFDS Seaways 

Pack up those bags and escape this Easter with DFDS Seaways. Whether you want to take the family or go with your partner or friend, DFDS Seaways will have a short cruise break that will help you relax and leave you feeling refreshed.

From 2 night Mini Cruise breaks to Amsterdam in Holland or Esbjerg in Denmark, to 5 night River Cruise breaks to Holland and Belgium and much more. Departing from Newcastle or Harwich there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.

If you want a fun family break, then why not book a special Mini Cruise to visit Artis Zoo in Holland. Home to around 700 species of animals, the Artis Zoo is the oldest Zoo in Holland. From only £350 for a family of 4 and departing from 1 April, this is the perfect Easter getaway.

Without the hassles of irritated children at the airport, you can sit back, relax and let DFDS Seaways do the hard work. The excellent onboard entertainment includes a cinema, Kidz Club, casino, shops, a number of restaurants and live shows, keeping adults and children amused throughout the journey.

If you would like to enjoy some time in the vibrant city of Amsterdam, then why not book the family on to the ORCA Wildlife Watching Mini Cruise where the children can enjoy a number of extra onboard activities, to include lively presentations and deck watches, and the opportunity to spot the habitants of the North Sea, like seals, dolphins, many birds, and even minke whales. From only £69pp, departing Newcastle every other day from 4 April, the trip also includes time in Amsterdam. A brilliant budget break and perfect for children to learn more about the sea. There are even 2 for 1 ORCA Mini Cruise available on selected departures in April, so the whole family can travel from only £138!

If you love flowers, then why not go on a colourful trip to the Keukenhof Gardens where you can enjoy hundreds of different types of flowers, covering over 85 acres for only £99pp sailing from Newcastle. With 2 nights onboard the DFDS Seaways cruise ferry, you can enjoy a romantic meal in one of the restaurants followed by an evening drink in one of the bars, before retreating to your en suite cabin for a comfortable nights sleep.

If you prefer the buzz of the city, then take a 2 night Mini Cruise break to Amsterdam sailing from Newcastle or Esbjerg in Denmark sailing from Harwich. Esbjerg is a buzzing, maritime city where you can enjoy some impressive art and great local cuisine. After 5 hours exploring the city, you will then board the ferry for the return leg of the journey. Priced from only £85pp, this is a great value break. Amsterdam is a must-visit city and offers plenty of art, culture and shopping for a short break. What’s more 2 for 1 Amsterdam Mini Cruises are also available on selected departures in April, so you will pay from only £89 for 2 people!
