A glittering history as a centre of finance and diamond trading lies in Amsterdam’s graceful wake, now a modern European city twinkling with golden lights after dark. Famous for its crescent-shaped canals, fleets of bicycling citizens and laid back attitude, Amsterdam has grown into one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. Characterful merchants’ houses in brick, black, or lemon line the canal banks, standing tall with their distinctive large windows happily glinting at city visitors.

A compact sea view cabin allows you to spot Amsterdam approaching or survey the North Sea as you relax for the night. Featuring en-suite toilet and shower, cabins are bright and come with bedding, towels and a wardrobe. An afternoon departure from Newcastle means that the ship reaches the Dutch port the next morning, with a bus available to whisk passengers into the city centre. After a day to explore Amsterdam’s scenic walkways and cultural highlights, the ship leaves Ijmuiden port at 5.30pm, to arrive back in Newcastle at 9am the next morning.
A compact capital, Amsterdam lends itself to small but sweetly formed city breaks. The grandiose Dam Square in the city’s historical centre is home to a 15th century Gothic church and a neoclassical Royal Palace with an ostentatious Empire-style interior. Take in some art at the Rijksmuseum, which is full of masterpieces from Holland’s Golden Age, or head to the Van Gogh museum which exhibits a large collection of the Dutch master’s work. The Anne Frank Museum is a sombre but fascinating trip into Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, based in the former hiding place of the Frank family. After exploring the city’s of cultural attractions, stop off for lunch in one of Amsterdam’s pancake houses, or sample the local speciality of salted herring from a street stall.
On Board Amenities
The ship offers abundant shopping opportunities with wine, confectionery, toys, and perfume amongst the products available. Also on board are several bars, cafes and restaurants to choose from. Entertainment comes in the form of live international bands playing in the Columbus Club, as well as a casino and film lounge. Guests receive a £10 voucher to be redeemed against on board products and services during their trip.
Weather and Climate
Clear, frosty days likely during one of Amsterdam’s coldest months.
A bus from Newcastle city centre to the port can be arranged through the ferry company, which also provides a connecting service from the Dutch terminal of Ijmuiden into Amsterdam.
Groupon Top Tip
It can be a good idea to pre-purchase tickets online to popular attractions such as the Anne Frank museum, as this usually means less queuing during your precious hours in Amsterdam.
