Discover amazing Amsterdam with DFDS

Discover amazing Amsterdam with DFDS

University is a time of freedom and broadening your horizons, so there’s no better time to travel and see the world around you, but we know that this can be expensive!

So why not enjoy a short city break in Amsterdam from just £85pp?

Take a break from essays, reading and coursework and head to the Dutch capital from DFDS’s port in Newcastle. After all, what were Reading Weeks made for, right?

You’ll set sail from North Shields near Newcastle at 5 pm and cruise overnight, arriving near Amsterdam at 9.30am the next morning. As you sail you’ll be able to take advantage of all of the amazing facilities onboard the ferry including bars with live music, shops, a cinema and 4 fantastic restaurants. There’s even a casino if you’re feeling brave (or reckless, whatever).

Once you arrive in port, you’ll be whisked to the city where you can explore as you please. If you book the mini cruise deal you’ll have 5 hours to spend in the city before you return, but if you fancy a longer stay in Amsterdam then book a hotel break and choose from specially selected accommodation, or a cruise & stay break, where you book your own accommodation. 

Our ferry crossings are also the perfect way to start an inter-railing adventure or a road trip. You can pack as much you like, so there’s no need to worry about the weight of your luggage. Ideal if you’re going camping!  

What more is there to say about Amsterdam that hasn’t been said already? The home of coffee shops, pancakes, Heineken, a world-famous Red Light District, and brilliant bars and clubs, it’s a guaranteed good time. Not only that, the Dutch capital can boast some of Europe’s most spectacular museums, with art from the likes of Van Gogh, Rembrandt and the other Dutch Masters, as well as mind-blowing science museums such as Science Center NEMO. Just in case you need to convince yourself (or anyone else) that this trip is educational. 

What more convincing could you possibly need!? From just £85pp, you could be heading to Amsterdam for an unforgettable short break. Just head to the DFDS website to book.
