Sail from Hull to Amsterdam from as little as £40 per person with P&O Ferries.

2 for 1 deal!

The renowned value of a P&O Ferries 2 for 1 Hull to Amsterdam mini cruise has returned, but with a twist.

Previously the 2 for 1 deal started from £79 for two people. Last year's 'Mini Cruises Mini Prices' promotion has returned again this year with P&O Ferries Amsterdam cruises starting from £40 per person.

While the offer is not called a two for one deal, you don't need to be a mathematician to see that this is effectively an identical offer. However, this year groups of three and five can take advantage of the same value that those travelling as a couple or a group of four used to enjoy.

Sail dates are available from October 2018 to December 2018.

Prices start from £40 per person based on Sunday to Wednesday sailings. Thursday sailings start from £43 per person. Friday sailings start from £63 per person. Saturday sailings start from £45 per person.

The sailing itself is the same. You'll set sail from Hull in the evening bound for Europoort near Rotterdam. Enjoy the great entertainment on-board your crossing and enjoy a comfortable night's sleep in an en-suite inside cabin.

TRIED AND TESTED! I have sailed on this mini cruise and have reviewed my experience. Read my review of my P&O Ferries' Amsterdam mini cruise break.

The following morning you'll dock at Europoort and board a coach for a transfer into Amsterdam city centre. You'll have around 7 hours of free time in Amsterdam (depending on when you dock, and when you choose to catch the return coach back to the port).

Explore the vibrant city, take in the sights and sounds and immerse yourself in the local culture. Check out my Amsterdam guide too!

Your return sailing departs in the early evening and sails overnight back to Hull, giving you another chance to enjoy yourself on-board.

Sailings leave Hull daily so you should be able to get the dates of your choice, though the offer is subject to availability. Book early to avoid disappointment.

A note on Direct Ferries' booking fees
Direct Ferries has begun to start charging a booking fee on all its ferry bookings. The fee is based on the total booking price and is £2 for orders of £99 or less; £3 for orders between £100 and £199; £4 for orders between £200 and £299; £5 for orders between £300 and £399; £6 for orders between £400 and £499; and £7 for orders of £500 or more. This fee is added to your basket right before you pay.

Tip: To avoid the booking fees, you can book direct via P&O Ferries website °. The 2-for-1 pricing appears to be available for selected October to December departures on there now. You'll also need to book direct if you want to upgrade to a Club class cabin.

Want to spend more time in Amsterdam?
For a supplement from as little as £10 per person you can extend your holiday to a three night break. You'll need to book a hotel separately but that gives you the freedom to choose one to suite your budget and preferences.

This deal is available but it won't hang around for long. Book as early as you can to get the best choice of dates and cheapest prices. I have been advised this deal is due to expire on Monday 31st December 2018. If you think the deal is no longer available please let me know and I'll let everyone else know.

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. In this promotion the lead-in price will be based on the cheapest ticket available during the offer period of between Saturday 28th April 2018 and Monday 31st December 2018 booked at the start of the promotion. 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. Additional terms and conditions imposed by the operator will apply to this offer in addition to their standard terms and conditions, both of which can be found on their website.

  1. Hi David, I have just booked hull to Amsterdam. My confirmation isn't very detailed and it's my first time on the ferry, I wondered if you could answering a few questions for me.
    If we depart at 20.30, what time do we need to be at the port? (Earliest & latest check in)
    What documentation do we need?
    Luggage allowance?
    We have transfers included, are they easy to find at the other side? And will they tell us our pick up time & place?
    I haven't prebooked any meals, is there an option to do so on the ship if we change our mind?
    I'm really sorry to bombard you! Thank you for your help in advance

    • If you depart at 20.30, the latest check in at the terminal is usually 19.00. They usually start boarding at around 16.00 should you plan to get there a bit earlier.

      You'll need to take your printed ticket and passport.

      You can take as much luggage as you can carry, but I'd advise taking no more than a backpack - you might need to take your luggage with you when you get off the ship (you'll find out at check-in) so you don't want to lug around a massive suitcase all day. On the trips I've made before, they've let me leave my luggage in my room (denoted by a key symbol on the boarding pass) which really helps. Ask at check-in to be sure.

      The transfer coaches are right outside the terminal and there's people to direct you to the right one. In Amsterdam, you'll get dropped off near to the main train station (great for hopping on a tram) and will be picked up in the same place.

      You can buy meals onboard. The pre-book option saves a small amount of cash but it's not a terrific amount. Onboard, you can choose to eat in the buffet restaurant, an a la carte restaurant, or in the cafe, paying onboard.

      In case it helps, I put together a detailed Amsterdam mini cruise review after my trip with P&O. If I can help with anything else, please just ask. Otherwise, I hope you haver a great time in Amsterdam. You'll be booking your next mini cruise before you know it!

    • If pre-booked, breakfast currently costs £10.50 per person and dinner is £19 per person. Pre-book both at the time of booking for £26 per person. In this instance, both breakfast and dinner is a buffet option.

      A la carte is available in the Brasserie. Based on the latest prices I can see, a Full English breakfast with a Starbucks coffee is £13.50 a head. A lighter continental breakfast of pastries and coffee is around £8 per person (dishes are individually priced). A three-course slap-up dinner is likely to cost in the region of £30 per person (again, dishes are individually priced). A two-course fixed menu costs £16 per person. A two-course dinner with a drink for kids is £8 each.
