What’s in store

Set sail from Newcastle to Holland at 5pm on 30 December and enjoy our onboard facilities while you sail, including the festive live entertainment. On arrival 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 into Amsterdam centre while you enjoy your lavish gala buffet or 3 course à la carte dinner before toasting the New Year with a complimentary glass of fizz.

Your package also includes an international buffet dinner on 30 December and 1 January and buffet breakfasts on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. All food is freshly prepared by our talented chefs.

All meals are included in the package, except breakfast on 2 January, which you can add on for a surcharge.

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 2020.

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, 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!
