  • "Cabin allocation just daft"

    Travelled under very strict covid regulations which meant there were no facilities open and we were asked to remain in our cabin as much as possible. Why then on a ferry which is nowhere near its capacity would they allocate cabins which sounded and felt like we were in the engine room. Anything to do with not booking through dfds?

  • "Lovely and stress free travel experience. "

    First time traveling on the Newcastle - Amsterdam route. What a lovely experience and value for money. Staff were super friendly and helpful. LOVED THE FREE BINGO! Plus the guy with the guitar was amazing. Dogs were allowed to stay in cabin and there was an outside area where we could take them during the crossing. We had dinner in the North Sea Bistro, the menu was small but tasty and the wine choice was excellent. Compliments are given to our waiter. All in all I was travelling, door to door, for 29 hours but because of the easy ferry experience it did not seem like that. I woke up refreshed, the dog was not stressed and the onward journey was easy. Heartily recommend this crossing over and above the Rotterdam-Hull P&O route, especially if you are travelling with a canine buddy. It's also way cheaper!

  • "Newcastle-Amsterdam "

    Walls are very thin so hard to have a conversation without people being able to hear everything. Restaurant promotes vegan however only actually has 1 option so more vegan options would be great. Other than that the mini cruise is great and I’d definitely do it again. Tv’s would be a great option for rooms too.
