The Cruise

DFDS Seaways invites city explorers to embark on a two-night mini cruise in the magical Christmas markets period.

The cruise ferries are brimming with entertainment and culinary options, offering accommodation in well-equipped cabins, each fitted with bunk beds, en suite facilities, a continental plug point, table, bedding, towels, hanging area for clothing and a mirror.

Linking Newcastle to the street cafes, Impressionist artwork and bicycle-lined streets of Amsterdam, the ships take sightseers on short-haul voyages where retail outlets, eateries, museums and numerous tourist attractions may be found

When coming in late November or December, tourists may look for an original gift in the Albert Cuypstraat, the largest Christmas market in town, enjoy ice skating and savour traditional Dutch sweets. Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein and Koningsplein are also home to various festive market stalls. 

Culinary options span the globe with a variety of buffet and a la carte specialities, while three well-stocked bars keep thirst under control. A spirited calendar of live events, live music at the Columbus Club, a cinema and a casino keep travellers entertained.

Groupon’s Guide To Amsterdam

Sitting on the south bank of IJ Lake, Amsterdam is a port city connected to the North Sea, with Amstel River flowing from south to north. Mixing vibrant nightlife and many diverse festivals with Renaissance architecture and cultural events, Amsterdam, the capital city of Netherlands, is a convenient spot for exploration and relaxation.

Guests can take a breath of fresh air with a stroll through the Erasmus Park, where ponds, gardens and local attractions make for a nice day in the sunshine. Moving inside, travellers can visit the Van Gogh Museum, which exhibits the works of the great master alongside pieces painted by his contemporaries. In this city of many tastes, tourists may enjoy Asian or Indonesian cuisine at one of the city’s restaurants or a dessert at one of the famous pancake houses, before renting a bicycle for a refreshing ride along the canals. Amsterdam also boasts shopping streets filled with a wide range of stores and street markets selling food and clothes.

The weather in the capital city of Netherlands features an oceanic climate, strongly influenced by the North Sea. The temperatures during the summer season are mild, with the average high of about 20°C. The city gets a great level of sunshine throughout the season. However, the average low temperature, especially in the evenings, reaches about 12°C. Starting from mid-September, autumn is a rainy and wet period, with October having an average of 13°C and November of 9°C. Amsterdam rarely sees the temperatures drop below 0°C in winter, with the average high around 5°C. The level of sunshine drops to one hour per day in December, but this improves as the season progresses. In the spring, the city warms up. Although March and April are still chilly, May is often very pleasant with highs reaching 20°C.
