Propose a Romantic Valentine’s Day break with a mini cruise to Amsterdam

- Whisk the one you love to Amsterdam from just £96 per person

Amsterdam is one of the most romantic cities in the world, so what better way to spend your Valentine weekend than sailing into the sunset on a DFDS mini cruise from Newcastle?

Departing on 13 February 2015, you can enjoy a dreamy two-night mini cruise onboard one of our luxury cruise ferries from just £96 per person, based on two people sharing a cabin – a 19% saving on our standard mini cruise package. 

This special mini cruise offer includes a romantic three-course meal in our à la carte Blue Riband restaurant on the outward crossing, plus a free bottle of sparkling wine. Next morning, before the ship docks in Holland, you can also enjoy a delicious hot and cold breakfast buffet before heading off for a day of romance in the beautiful Dutch capital.

On your return crossing, you can choose to either dine again in the Blue Riband restaurant, or try one of our other two onboard restaurants. If you’re fond of trying different types of cuisine, then the 7 Seas buffet might provide the perfect setting for your candlelit supper, or if you love a good steak, then our Explorer’s Steakhouse has the juiciest selection this side of the States. 

Amsterdam is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, with stunning architecture and wonderful cobbled streets to explore and experience. You can book a canal cruise and see all of the city’s best sights from a unique and romantic new perspective, or head to the 23rd floor of the Okura Hotel and dine in the magnificent Ciel Bleu restaurant for a world-class dining experience and unbeatable view.

If you are looking to choose a special present while you’re away, Amsterdam is home to a number of diamond shops selling fresh-cut gems, as well as florists full of beautiful blooms.
