DFDS Introduces New Mini Cruise Party Packages for Groups

  • The new ‘Party at Sea’ packages offer passengers a unique experience during their mini cruise adventure
  • Packages available for groups of ten or more on board DFDS’ Newcastle-Amsterdam route

Celebrations abroad make even the most special occasions more memorable for guests but why wait until you reach your overseas destination when you can start your celebration en route?

With DFDS’ new ‘Party at Sea’ packages you can do just that, celebrating with friends, family or work colleagues when you book a group of ten or more. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, baby shower or even just an excuse for a family get together, packages can be tailored to create a unique experience to make your celebration one to remember.

Included within the deal are two nights on board the Newcastle-Amsterdam mini cruise, a glass of champagne on arrival, a variety of meal options in a choice of the ship’s four restaurants, a personalised cake and a cabin upgrade for the host*.

Upon arrival in Holland, guests can enjoy a free transfer to Amsterdam city centre where they can explore the city at their own leisure and continue with their celebrations before heading back to the UK on the overnight sailing.

DFDS is also offering a brand new range of entertainment on board its ships, in partnership with top agency Excellent Entertainment. The programme now includes a range of themed shows, new live entertainment and DJs, as well as a ‘welcome aboard’ party.

Prices for the Party at Sea packages start from £94pp and bookings can be made through the dedicated group bookings team. For more information visit www.dfdsseaways.co.uk/party.

DFDS provides daily overnight departures to Holland. The Newcastle-Amsterdam cruise ferries are equipped with four restaurants including the Explorers’ Steakhouse, an all-you-can-eat world-food buffet in the 7 Seas, the Blue Riband à la carte restaurant and ‘Little Italy’, a pasta and pizza restaurant. Other on board facilities include a shop, a casino, a cinema and a Kidz club to keep children entertained.
