DFDS Seaways

Although DFDS is a ferry operator, we’ve chosen to include them because for Black Friday they’re hosting a brilliant deal on their popular Newcastle-Amsterdam mini cruise.

In fact, passengers can get up to 66% off the two-night cruise which includes five hours in the Dutch capital – you can check out our guide to making the most of a trip to Amsterdam for extra inspiration.

Prices start from £30 per person for the return journey, based on two people sharing an ensuite cabin.

That includes your two nights on board and the coach transfers to and from the ferry in Amsterdam.

Tempted? You can book on the DFDS website but be quick as the offer expires on Monday 26th November.

The deal is valid for select departure dates between the 25th November to the 31st March.
