About Your Trip

​Our Amsterdam mini cruise is our most popular break and it’s not hard to see why. You get 2 nights onboard one of our cruise ferries and the best part of the day to explore Amsterdam – a perfect combination.

What's Included: ​

  • 2 nights onboard in an en suite cabin
  • Coach transfers to & from Amsterdam
  • Up to 5 hours in Amsterdam
  • Live entertainment


Onboard Entertainment

Unwind with a drink in the bars, hit the shops or head to the Columbus Club for live music from the house band, or to the Navigator’s bar for laid back tunes from our acoustic troubador. Thrill-seekers can head to the casino for a flutter, or you can catch a Hollywood blockbuster at the onboard cinema.

For children there’s a kidz’ club with a ball pool, Lego and cartoons, a free children’s entertainer and a games room for teenagers.​​


Your break begins the moment you step onboard, so why not drop your bags in your cabin and explore the ship? We have a range of en suite cabins onboard to suit every budget. Our standard Seaways cabins come with sea view and inside options, and can sleep up to 5 people and we have economy cabins for those on a budget.

You can also upgrade your cabin to our premium Commodore or Commodore cabins for an extra cost. Simply select your preferred cabin type during the booking process.​

Dining Onboard

We have a variety of restaurants onboard to tempt your taste buds. Feast on the all-you-can-eat buffet in the 7 Seas restaurant serving a tantalising mix of international dishes and a cooked breakfast in the morning. Our Little Italy restaurant offers traditional pizza and pasta dishes suitable for the whole family, and if you’d like to treat yourself then take a seat in the à la carte Blue Riband restaurant. Or for a sumptuous steak cooked just how you like it head to the Explorer’s Steakhouse. There’s also a café for snacks and light bites.

Book meals in advance for extra convenience and to save up to 17% compared to onboard prices.
