Newcastle Mini Cruise

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.

As the transfer from the port to the city centre only takes 20 minutes, you’ll have plenty of time to explore everything Newcastle has to offer in the 5 hours that you’ll spend there. It’ll also give you the chance to savour the city’s grand architecture or even to cross the famous Tyne Bridge or Millennium Bridge, among the city’s most recognisable sights.

  • 2 nights onboard in an en suite cabin
  • Coach transfers to and from Newcastle
  • Up to 5 hours in Newcastle​
  • Free live entertainment onboard​​​​​
Visit Newcastle


Newcastle is a fantastic city, with something to offer everyone. For example art lovers should head for the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art – a former grain store on the banks of the Tyne that is now home to a modern art gallery with frequently changing exhibitions – its free to enter too. Football fans might like a tour of St James Park, the home of Newcastle United and one of the UK’s most famous stadia, which sits right in the heart of the city. 

Then, if all the sightseeing’s given you an appetite, head for one of the many restaurants or cafes in the Quayside area and then round off your mini cruise to Newcastle at the Discovery Museum. It tells the story of the city and its star exhibit is the 30m-long Turbinia, once the fastest ship in the world and the first to be powered by a steam turbine.

Onboard entertainment


As you sail overnight from Amsterdam​ to Newcastle, you’ll find so much to do and enjoy onboard. Unwind with a drink in the bars, hit the shops, catch a Hollywood blockbuster at the cinema or enjoy a flutter in the casino.

And for children there’s a kids’ club with a ball pool and cartoons, a free children’s entertainer and a games room for teenagers. 

There is also live music and entertainment in our club, so you’re sure to enjoy your crossing just as much as your time in Newcastle.

Delicious cuisine


We have a variety of restaurants onboard to tempt your taste buds. Feast on the all-you-can-eat world-food buffet in the 7 Seas restaurant serving a mix of international dishes. If you’d like to treat yourself take a seat in the à la carte Blue Riband restaurant. Or for a sumptuous steak served still-sizzling, cooked just how you like it head to the Explorer’s Steakhouse. There’s also an Italian restaurant, Little Italy, which serves classic mediterranean dishes and our Lighthouse Café onboard.

Cosy cabins
