Enjoy a two-night short break from Newcastle, with up to five hours to spend exploring Amsterdam.
This is an effortless and great value way to explore the city of Amsterdam, and perfect if you need a quick getaway timed around your shifts at work.
Prices in this latest promotion start from £59 per person based on two sharing a cabin. DFDS says the price is up to a 38% saving against standard fares - so it's nearly as good as value as a 2 for 1 mini cruise deal. Better still, you can opt for their 3-night cruise-and-stay product (where you book a one night hotel stay separately yourself in Amsterdam) which also starts from £59 per person based on two sharing a cabin.

Setting sail from Newcastle in the afternoon, you'll have a chance to try out the entertainment, sample some great food and rest in a choice of cabins to suit all budgets on-board a modern ferry. Fully rested, you'll arrive in Amsterdam the next morning.
Coach transfers are available to take you from the port of Ijmuiden to Amsterdam city centre where you can spend the day exploring the city.
At the time of booking not only can you pre-book on-board meals to save on ship prices, you can also book activities and excursions in Amsterdam at a reduced rate.
After a busy day exploring or a quiet day relaxing and sipping in the Dutch culture, it's time to catch a return coach transfer back to the port for your sailing back home. The ferry sails through the night arriving back in Newcastle the following morning.
If you've opted for the three-night cruise-and-stay product, then you'll instead spend the night in the hotel you booked. So you can enjoy Amsterdam's legendary nightlife, plus you'll have another day to spend in this wonderful city. That afternoon, catch the return coach transfer back to the port for your overnight sailing back home.
Book by 28 February 2019 for travel dates right up to 31 March 2019. This is a great excuse to book a Spring mini cruise today.
The dull-but-necessary small print
All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice. The lead-in prices (otherwise known as the 'from' prices) are, unless otherwise stated above, based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin on the cheapest available date. Typically the best prices are available at the start of any promotion period so the earlier you book the better choice of sailing dates and cabin availability you should have. Mid-week sail dates are likely to be cheaper than weekend sail dates.
