DFDS is offering groups mini cruise packages on its reinstated route from Newcastle to Amsterdam which includes fine dining, duty-free shopping and exclusive group extras.
The group offer, which is available for ten or more people throughout 2022, means travellers can experience fine dining, duty-free shopping and a private en suite cabin before arriving in Amsterdam.
Prices for this offer are based on two people sharing an en suite inside cabin and includes coach transfers from the port into Amsterdam city centre, with up to five hours to explore.
Alternatively, you can stay in Amsterdam city centre for an extra night on one of the operator’s Amsterdam Hotel Breaks, which includes breakfast in the morning. One person also travels free for every 20 people booked.
For coach operators booking their vehicle and 20 or more passengers on the Newcastle to Amsterdam route, the driver and coach travel for free. Prices include free sole-occupancy of an en suite cabin and a free evening meal and breakfast onboard for the driver.
