The ferry travels over night to Amsterdam, leaving from Newcastle at 5pm. Once on-board you won’t be short of things to entertain you. There are live events in the evenings, such as music in one of the clubs. There are also various cinemas and casinos that you can choose to use, should you wish to. The cabin you will be staying in is a two-berth cabin which has a bed, table and plug point so you can charge that all-important camera!
Food is not included in this deal, however you will be given a £10 on-board voucher to use for food and drink wherever you would like to within the ferry. There are various cafes, bars and restaurants for you to choose from. It just depends on what you fancy. Keep in mind that you’ll be spending two nights on here, so you can try two different places!
You will arrive in Amsterdam at 9.30am the following morning. Do not waste any time, as you will leave at 5.30pm the same day! There are so many museums for you to see, different foods to try and so much to experience. This day in Amsterdam will only whet your appetite for The Netherlands. I would definitely recommend heading to the Rembrandt House Museum, it’s really enjoyable and a good use of your time (especially if it’s cold). I would also recommend trying some Asian cuisine for lunch, due to the old colonies The Netherlands boasts some amazing Asian chefs!
This is a really great and affordable way for you to discover one of the coolest cities in Europe. It’s a 2 night round trip that gives you an opportunity to have a little taste of what Amsterdam is like. I can all but guarantee that you will be going back again.
