Two new ferries joining our Newcastle – Amsterdam route!

​Early 2020, we will see two new ships joining our Newcastle – Amsterdam route. It means we have to say goodbye to our beloved King and Princess Seaways, however, we are excited to be introducing the two new ferries. They will have a higher car-deck capacity which brings more opportunities for you to reach your destination.

More details to follow soon so stay tuned!
