  1. I use the DFDS ferry at least twice a year and everytime I do i’m still amazed by the great value for money. Me and my family drive over to visit loved ones in Holland (lot’s of my Dad’s family live there) and it usually costs less than £350 to get the car and the family over to Holland and back to the UK. Though recently we have being paying a little bit extra for a nicer room – though the cheaper rooms are still good, but it’s nice to have a sea view.

  2. I used the Newcastle to Amsterdam ferry for the first time last week and as a frequent “cruise user” I was very pleasently surprised by the on-board experience. I was expecting it to be just a means of transportation, but it was all very civilised and not unlike an actual cruise holiday, allbeit on a much smaller scale.

    The only negative thing was that it was quite expensive on board for food and drinks, but our friends pre-booked their food when they booked online and the saved some money, so next time we will do that. The food though was really good, we ate in the steakhouse on both legs of the jouney and a lovely meal on both occasions.

  3. nobody mentioned it but if you are on a short holiday … it starts as soon as you drop your bags in your cabin , have used this ferry on foot and by motor cycle and have never traveled any place before with less fuss , enjoy
