Gateway to Europe

Gateway to Europe

Set sail from Newcastle to our port in IJmuiden, near Amsterdam, or from Dover to Dunkirk or Calais and you can open the gateway to Europe and explore the continent at your own pace.​

From IJmuiden you’ll find easy access to a number of top destinations all over Europe, thanks to the continent’s excellent motorway network. Amazing tourist attractions in Holland, France, Belgium and Germany are all just an easy drive away. Our French ports are ideal for discovering France with Normandy, Lille and Paris all a short drive away, but also just a couple of hours from Bruges, the Dutch border and Germany.

What’s more, with no luggage restrictions on any of our ferry crossings, you can pack and bring back as much as you like, perfect if you’re planning a camping, cycling, skiing or even shopping holiday!

Mini cruise

Amsterdam mini cruise

Our mini cruise is our most popular short break and it’s no surprise! Not only will you enjoy 2 nights onboard our modern, comfortable cruise ferry, but you’ll also have up to 5 hours in Amsterdam to spend however you like.

Take in one of the Dutch capital’s amazing museums, such as the Rijksmuseum or Van Gogh Museum, which host fantastic works from the Dutch Masters such as Van Gogh himself as well as Rembrandt and more. Alternatively, hit the 9 Streets for a touch of retail therapy, with some of Amsterdam’s best shopping all located in criss-crossing streets or grab a beer or coffee at a canalside café.

Onboard entertainment

Onboard entertainment

Our ferry crossings are so popular because the journey is just as much fun as the time you spend in your destination. The comfortable cruise ferries on our Newcastle-Amsterdam route come packed with fantastic facilities to make sure your voyage is as enjoyable as possible.

Grab a beer and take in the live music and entertainment in our bars and club, including a resident band and acoustic troubadour, or head to the shops to pick up fashion, fragrance, confectionery, gifts and souvenirs at fantastic prices - many cheaper than on the high street!

Meanwhile, on our routes from Dover to France, the crossings are much shorter (just 90 minutes to Calais and 2 hours to Dunkirk) but there’s still plenty to do as you sail. Head to the shops to pick up travel essentials, gifts, souvenirs and more, or settle down with a drink in the bar and catch up on news and sport on our big-screen TVs.

Onboard dining

Onboard dining

The ferries on all of our routes have numerous restaurants and dining options. While you travel from Dover to Dunkirk or Calais you can sit down to a full meal at the 7 Seas restaurant or a smaller meal at the Horizon Snackbar, a New York style deli. Both restaurants have a range of meals available, including vegetarian and children’s options. There is also the Lighthouse Café where you can enjoy lighter bites, plus hot and cold drinks, while you sail.

Meanwhile on the Newcastle-Amsterdam route, you can’t go wrong with pizza or pasta from Little Italy, with a range of freshly-prepared classic Mediterranean dishes to choose from. Alternatively treat yourself to a succulent steak served still-sizzling at the Explorers Steakhouse. Our Blue Riband à la carte has meat, poultry and vegetarian dishes served in a fantastic dining space, or you can be spoilt for choice at the 7 Seas all-you-can-eat buffet, with over 80 dishes from all corners of the world.
