Ferries to Holland

The official name of the country internationally known as Holland is the Kingdom of the Netherlands, or just the Netherlands.

Bordered by Belgium to its south/south west side and Germany to its east and north, almost a third of the country’s boundary is coastline (around 450 kilometres).

Amsterdam gets the headlines, but the Netherlands is so much more than just its capital city and features numerous impressive destinations to explore including Rotterdam, The Hague and Arnhem in the countryside as well as the medieval towns of Delft and Utrecht.

If you looking to get to Holland by ferry then there’s a choice of crossings available from the UK, whether you are travelling with a vehicle or on foot. There are conveniently scheduled sailings from the south east and north east of England running year round and all sailings are operated by large, modern luxurious ferries.

If you’re looking for more flexibility and a larger choice of sailings and at the same time don’t mind a longer drive then you can also take the ferry to France or Belgium and drive across to Holland.

Taking the ferry to Holland also provides an ideal gateway for onward travel around northern Europe, especially for getting to countries with no direct connection from the UK such as Germany and Poland.

Holland reviews

  • "Night sail to Holland"

    Arrived at Harwich 9.30 for the 11.15 departure. Went straight through customs and on to the boat in less than 10 minutes. Went to our cabin which was captains class. Boat sailed on time , slept in very comfy bed. Woken by announcement 6.30 about Breakfast. Docked in Holland on time. Overall an extremely civilised stress free way to travel no queues no delays no luggage restrictions. Will definitely travel this way again.

  • "Great Long Weekend"

    The two nights on board ship were a great part of our overall extended weekend break. We really appreciated the staff attention and courtesy. A great trip. However, the boarding and disembarking process was a bit frustrating on both trips. There were Aero bridge breakdowns in both ports.

  • "Harwich- Hook of Holland in March 2013"

    I took a Captain's Cabin with a huge round window and a queen's bed. There was a wellcoming fruit basket and alcohol to choose from minibar. Flat tv in front of the bed and more spacious bathroom than in other cabins. I went shopping, haven't found what I was looking for in cosmetic section, however I purchased few other items. Due to late evening hours and long journey ahead I did't explore more. Arrival was on time and disembarcation was very swift.I had a very good rest at night despite rocky waves. Overall happy with my experience.
