Which ferry company runs the route?
DFDS Seaways runs this ferry route. They pride themselves on offering more than just a ferry crossing – as they say, it’s more of a Cruise Ferry. DFDS also offer crossings to Denmark and France.

Does the ferry sail overnight?
Most definitely – and this is part of the attraction. Check-in is from 14.30 to 16.30, and the ferry departs at 17.00, to arrive in Amsterdam at 9.30 the next morning.

What is it like on-board?
This is a long crossing, so there’s plenty on offer on-board, including 3 restaurants, various bars and cafes, a casino, bingo, a cinema, and quite unusual for a ferry – a night club! So we’re sure you will find something to do during the night time crossing. Of course, if you book a cabin, you could just enjoy a good night’s rest.
