What’s in store

Our ferry will depart from Newcastle to Holland at 5pm on 30 December. Take advantage of all our onboard facilities while you sail, including the festive live entertainment. Once you arrive in IJmuiden the next morning, take the coach into Amsterdam city centre and explore this beautiful city’s seasonal treats for up to 5 hours before heading back to the ship to get ready for the New Year celebrations.

The ship will then sail down the North Sea Canal and into Amsterdam centre while you enjoy either your lavish gala dinner buffet or 3-course à la carte dinner. Toast the New Year with a complimentary glass of fizz and head out on deck to watch the spectacular Amsterdam fireworks display.

You’ll then be able to enjoy New Year’s Day in Amsterdam before returning on the overnight crossing to arrive in Newcastle on the morning of 2 January 2019.

New Year in Amsterdam

European culture is famous for its celebration of the festive season and Amsterdam is no different. 

Try the seasonal cuisines such as oliebollen, a small iced donut, which are said to ward off evil spirits. Don’t forget to try appelflappen, too, a classic Dutch apple fritters that will be easy to find here in December.

For daytime activities, most of Amsterdam’s museums are open over the New Year period. On your second day in the city, why not do a spot of shopping? 

The winter sales will be in full swing and you can pick up some serious bargains at one of the many boutiques or department stores. You could even head to one of the city’s ice rinks!
