Quick Book

Ships overview

We have two ships on our Newcastle-Amsterdam route – KING SEAWAYS and PRINCESS SEAWAYS.

The ships on this route are called cruise ferries as they boast a range of facilities and entertainment options to ensure you have an enjoyable crossing.

We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and are proud to have been named the World’s Best Ferry Operator in 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011. The 140 crew onboard both ships are here to make your crossing memorable and enjoyable. Take a look at our behind the scenes film below.
