- Bookable now
DFDS have slashed prices on their daily sailings from Newcastle to Holland for travel-only, inclusive city packages and group bookings.
There’s no better time to visit the bright lights of Amsterdam, as the city comes alive with a wealth of events and activities in the early part of the year. Highlights include the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the Amsterdam Light Festival which runs until 21 January, bringing mesmeric light installations to the waterways and the National Tulip Day display in Dam Square on 20 January.
Those who prefer to stay indoors in the warm can shop till they drop in the January sales, or indulge in the city’s unparalleled gastronomy, which steps up a notch as the cold weather sets in – “Oliebollen” Dutch donuts and “appelflappen” hot apple pastries, are just two favourites.
For travel-only, take advantage of the special two-night mini cruise deal to the Dutch capital, priced from just £44.50 per person for two people and from £29.50 per person for four people, relaxing in the comfort of an ensuite cabin.
For a more inclusive travel and accommodation package, City Cruise Breaks are on sale from £88 per person for two people and from £79 per person for four people. This includes an overnight stay in Amsterdam at the centrally-located IBIS West Corner Hotel.
It’s a case of the more the merrier, as groups of ten people or more can also bag a 2 for 1 deal, priced from £26 per person, plus one in every ten passengers travels free.
Book by 28 February 2018 for travel from 21 December 2017 until 28 March 2018 (subject to availability) at www.dfds.co.uk
