DFDS Seaways Mini Cruises

DFDS Mini Cruises

Our DFDS Seaways minicruise breaks give you the perfect opportunity to combine your travel as a part of your short break! As well as visiting great cities like Amsterdam, you’ll also get to enjoy the delights of everything on board your ship thanks to an array of facilities and entertainment.

From amazing value in the Sea Shops, to huge blockbuster movies in the cinema, you’re really spoilt for choice on a DFDS Seaways ferry cruise. There’s even a casino for you to try your luck in. The four restaurants make it easy to find a delicious meal to indulge in, and afterwards you can relax with a drink in the bar while listening to live music.

Once you arrive into port, the coaches will whisk you off into the city centre to discover the best of Amsterdam – from museums to shops, landmarks to incredible food and drink, it really is a visit you’ll remember forever.
