DFDS has launched yet another flash sale, this time with mini cruise prices from £35 per person.
This offer is strictly limited to this weekend.
The offer represents a 59% saving on regular mini cruise prices according to the company. DFDS' 2 for 1 deal starts from £85 (equivalent to £42.50 per person).
Sail dates are available up to March 2017.
Sail from North Shields near Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, early in the evening. Enjoy your evening as you wish. Perhaps you will enjoy the free live entertainment on-board, have a drink or two from the bar, or feast on a delicious meal in one of the onboard restaurants.
Get some rest in your choice of cabin. Economy and Standard Inside cabins offer the best value. Sea View cabins afford a view out to sea while Premium Commodore cabins offer a view and the most space together with creature comforts such as an in-room TV and complimentary mini bar.
In the morning enjoy a buffet breakfast before you arrive at Ijmuiden port, located west of Amsterdam.
Once docked, disembark, and head out to your awaiting coach to Amsterdam city centre.
You will have up to five hours to do as you wish. Whether you fancy a cultural break, a relaxing break, or you want to sample Dutch food and drink, there is something for everyone.
Catch your awaiting bus back to the port in time for the return overnight sailing. Arrive back in the UK early in the morning.
This offer has been repeated. The history of this deal goes like this:
- The first incarnation was a 'from £35 per person' offer.
- It resurfaced a while later as a 'from £40 per person' offer, but included breakfast on the outbound crossing, which normally sells for £11 (or €15.95 onboard).
- Then it included a free one-hour Amsterdam canal cruise instead, with similar tours priced at around €15 (around £13.50) per person.
- It then came back as a 'from £35 per person' offer again, and twice again after.
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All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice.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.
