"Ferry useful notes"
Reviewed 06 October 2014 by Joseph
The ferry itself is clean and full of facilities but once underway you do not have access to your vehicle so you should take everything with you to your cabin. I forgot my iphone charger which was connected to my car and as a result ran out of power. I would suggest turning off your mobile phone as the call charges to receive/call are very high. There is WIFI but it was very slow.

At first glance Newcastle virtual capital of the area between Yorkshire and Scotland - may appear to be just another northern industrial conurbation, but the banks of the Tyne have been settled for nearly two thousand years and the city consequently has a greater breadth of attractions than many of its rivals. The Romans were the first to bridge the river here, and the "new castle" appeared as long ago as 1080. In the seventeenth century a regional monopoly on coal export brought wealth and power to Newcastle and - as well as giving a new expression to the English language - engendered its other great industry, shipbuilding. At one time, a quarter of the world's shipping was built here, and the first steam train and steam turbine also emerged from Newcastle factories. In its nineteenth-century heyday, Newcastle's engineers and builders gave the city an elegance which has survived the ravages of recent development
Amsterdam is the cultural capital of the Netherlands. It lies on the banks of two bodies of water, the IJ bay and the Amstel river. Founded in the late 12th century as a small fishing village on the banks of the Amstel, it is now the largest city in the country and its financial and cultural centre. The medieval core boasts the best of the city's bustling streetlife and is home to shops, many bars and restaurants. Amsterdam has one of the largest historic city centres in Europe, dating largely from the 17th century, the Golden Age of the Netherlands, of which it was the focal point. At this time, a series of concentric, semi-circular canals were built around the older city centre, which still defines its layout and appearance today. Many fine houses and mansions are situated along the canals; most are lived in, others are offices, and some public buildings. Some of the houses are gradually sinking because they are built on piles to cope with the marshy subsoil.
