Trains, cars, and planes are fine methods of travel, but none can boast homely comforts alongside hotel-style luxuries—which is where DFDS Seaways come in. Embark on a relaxing two-night return mini cruise for two people from Newcastle to Amsterdam.

For £79 you can bunk down in an onboard cabin for two nights and admire sea views from the deck. Cabins include an en suite shower and toilet, as well as air conditioning and reading lights. Browse the shops to snap up a bargain or two; clothing, perfumes and aftershaves, chocolate, and cosmetics are all on show. There is no shortage of ways to entertain yourselves on board—catch one of the latest film releases at the cinema or try your luck with a flutter at the casino. A £10 onboard voucher is included as part of this package to spend during the journey.

You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining; The 7 Seas Restaurant offers up to 80 dishes of world cuisine for breakfast, lunch, or dinner in the popular buffet restaurant whilst the Blue Riband serves à la carte options in an intimate, contemporary atmosphere for that special occasion. Meat lovers can rejoice as the cruise even has its own onboard Explorer's Steakhouse—here you'll find tender, juicy cuts of steak cooked just the way you like it. Once you're finished satisfying your appetite you could unwind with a cocktail in one of the onboard bars.

Once you arrive in Amsterdam coaches will whisk you off to the heart of the vibrant city for up to five hours of exploration and free time. There's plenty of time to amble along the canals, enjoy a strong coffee in a quirky cafe, or hire a bicycle. You could even stop by a museum or gallery to cap off a pleasant afternoon in the characterful capital.

This Escape is for two people. It departs Newcastle and one night of your stay will be on the outward journey and one night on the return leg. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge at escapes.uk@livingsocial.com.
