The Cruise

DFDS’ cruise ferries brim with entertainment and culinary options, offering accommodation in well-equipped cabins, each fitted with en suite facilities with a shower, basin and toilet, continental plug point, table, bedding, hanging area for clothing, mirror and towels.

Linking Newcastle to the street cafes, Impressionism artwork, and bicycle-lined streets of Amsterdam, the ships take sightseers on short-haul voyages where retail outlets, eateries, and all kinds of entertainment wait to be explored.

The onboard culinary options range from buffet meals to a la carte delights, while three well-stocked bars keep thirst under control. A spirited calendar of live events and live music at the Columbus Club, as well as the cinema and casino, keep travellers entertained.

A new Pop Up restaurant will be open onboard for a limited time only. Customers will find delicious menus with a range of exciting cuisines there. The menus change monthly, offering up options like Asian, Latin tapas and Indian. It’s only available until November. Customers can prebook their meal and save up to 25% compared to onboard prices.

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.
