1. From Amsterdam: 2-Night Return Cruise to Newcastle
A mini cruise to Newcastle is a fantastic way to explore this exciting city which offers a brilliant combination of sights to see, shops to visit and restaurants, cafés and bars where you can enjoy a meal or a drink. If the sun is shining you can spend the afternoon in one of the city’s parks, browse the world’s only floating flower market or if you’re looking to soak up some culture, why not visit one of the many famous museums in the city? With pre-booking and social distancing measures in place, you can browse some world-famous museums without the normal crowds you would expect. You won’t want to leave before sampling some delicious Dutch pancakes too! We recommend you book in advance any museum visits or canal cruises and check the guidelines of the venue before visiting. 2 Night Mini Cruise: the crossing from Amsterdam to Newcastle docks at the international ferry terminal in North Shields, about 7 miles from the city centre.
