  • "Good Route For Scotland"

    This makes the journey home from Europe far more enjoyable than the usual routes available. The buffet restaurant I thought was a bit expensive until we tried it. The food was amazing and we would definitely eat in it again. The beds in the basic berths are really comfy and very clean. Staff were helpful and the entertainment was good.

  • "A most relaxing way to travel"

    I recently took the Amsterdam Newcastle crossing, together with my two kids, for a camping trip in the north of England. I decided on this route as we'd had a good experience a few years ago and, since I wanted to be sure that we all arrived relaxed and rested, I paid a little bit more and we travelled Commodore DeLuxe. It was money well spent. The crossing was fantastic, the staff were helpful and cheerful, the cabin was fantastic and everything worked smoothly. Even the problem I had on leaving the ferry (car wouldn't start) was dealt with quickly and with no drama. The only downside I feel is the cost of the evening meal which, although very good, I felt was overpriced. All in all I recommend this as a way to travel and will be taking this route again next summer.

The capital city of The Netherlands, Amsterdam is located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country. The city is world famous and has many things for visitors to do and see. The city's main attractions include its historic canals, the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, Hermitage Amsterdam, Anne Frank House and the Amsterdam Museum. In addition, Amsterdam also has many parks and open spaces including Vondelpark, the largest park in the city. It is located in the Oud-Zuid part of the city and is named after the 17th century Amsterdam author, Joost van den Vondel. The park attracts around 10 million visitors each year.

The city's famous canals run for more than 100 km. The three main canals are Prinsengracht, Herengracht and Keizersgracht, all 3 of which are navigable by boat. The city is often nicknamed the "Venice of the North," due to its division into approximately 90 islands, which are linked by more than 1,200 bridges.

The city's port is located on the bank of the former bay named the IJ and the North Sea Canal, which obviously connects the city to the North Sea.

Newcastle Guide

The English city of Newcastle is located in the north east of England and has recently been voted the best destination for a short break in the United Kingdom. Newcastle is the largest city in the north east of England, with adjoining Gateshead, and many of its grand 19th century streets follow the course of the River Tyne, which meanders close to the heart of the city. This vibrant city is full of history, with its city centre having more listed classical buildings than any other city in the UK, and has many interesting things to see and do including the elegant streets of Grainger Town through to the modern Gateshead Millennium Bridge.

The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is a popular attraction because of its unique architecture and tilting mechanism; and in contrast there is Whitley Bay which is a popular seaside resort with a golden sandy beach and seafront promenade. For lovers of history, Hadrian's Wall was built by the Romans in 110 AD and is not far from the city. Heading back to the city there is the Gateshead Music Centre, which was recently redeveloped at a cost of more than £50 million, and Customs House which is a major entertainment and leisure complex.
