  • "Cabin allocation just daft"

    Travelled under very strict covid regulations which meant there were no facilities open and we were asked to remain in our cabin as much as possible. Why then on a ferry which is nowhere near its capacity would they allocate cabins which sounded and felt like we were in the engine room. Anything to do with not booking through dfds?

  • "All very good despite Covid and Brexit"

    Not our first trip but first for 3 years. While bar and restaurant services were reduced the trip was still fine. We took some food and a bottle of wine and had that in the cabin. Bar was open on this outbound trip and we managed a couple of drinks. Ship was very quiet and trip went quickly. Staff were as every cheery and very helpful.

    Thank you for nice ferry trip. Cabin was very clean, spacious, clean; beds comfy; bathroom immaculate. Unfortunately due to unforseen circumstances all facilities were closed during this trip and dinner / breakfast service were made on take away basis. We will definately be coming back.

  • "Lovely and stress free travel experience. "

    First time traveling on the Newcastle - Amsterdam route. What a lovely experience and value for money. Staff were super friendly and helpful. LOVED THE FREE BINGO! Plus the guy with the guitar was amazing. Dogs were allowed to stay in cabin and there was an outside area where we could take them during the crossing. We had dinner in the North Sea Bistro, the menu was small but tasty and the wine choice was excellent. Compliments are given to our waiter. All in all I was travelling, door to door, for 29 hours but because of the easy ferry experience it did not seem like that. I woke up refreshed, the dog was not stressed and the onward journey was easy. Heartily recommend this crossing over and above the Rotterdam-Hull P&O route, especially if you are travelling with a canine buddy. It's also way cheaper!

  • "Positive Negative"

    Positive: Booking and check-in easy, good and clean accommodation, good service on board, no delays Negative: poor communication. I tried to do an alteration to our booking. It took days for a reply, until it was actually too late.. In general there ar no phone no. to get a quick and easy information. Bad (in fact no) information on our way back, that we had to have a positive corona test before embarking. We had to take a test (antigen, nor pcr!!!)on site for the unbelievable price of 75 pounds per person!!! Very annoying.

  • "Comfy but missing some stuff"

    Cabin was small but comfortable. Meals were to a good standard and care taken to have separate items at the buffet. Unfortunately some facilities not available I guess due to COVID and reduced numbers of travellers. However, should surely have been possible to have more than a choice of poor canned beer in the bar. No draught beers available.

  • "Film listing difficulty"

    This is trivial, but annoying. We are pleased there is a cinema in board (unlike P&O to Hull). However, when reading the film summaries, the screen gives time to read one line of description before switching to another screen. It takes ages to read it all. The paper version gives only the film titles, so unless you're a film buff, it's pretty useless.

  • "Newcastle-Amsterdam "

    Walls are very thin so hard to have a conversation without people being able to hear everything. Restaurant promotes vegan however only actually has 1 option so more vegan options would be great. Other than that the mini cruise is great and I’d definitely do it again. Tv’s would be a great option for rooms too.

  • "Well done DFDS! "

    My ferry to Newcastle was canceled just a day before, due to extreme weather. With some difficulty I phoned and got through to a gentleman who re-booked me onto a ferry from Dunkirk instead of Amsterdam in hope the weather would be more clement there. Upony arrival however, it decidedly was not. I was therefore swiftly given a voucher for a Euro tunnel train. I really needed to be in Scotland on the next day and I am therefore extremely grateful to DFDS ferries for making it possible in spite of the extreme weather conditions. Well done!!

  • "Fun and Rest on the Sea"

    Travel by ship is fun! You can walk all around the vessel and get great views, feel the sea breeze, eat in a proper restaurant, and then retire to a cozy cabin for hours of shut-eye. On an airplane you get none of that, but rather standing in queues, running for gates, to be crammed into a tiny seat and fed like cattle.
