P&O Ferries Amsterdam Mini Cruise Review
On an early March Thursday, I embarked on a two-night mini cruise from cold and wet Hull to the equally muggy city of Amsterdam. Weather aside, this is a very popular mini cruise route operated by P&O Ferries. The sailing itself runs between Hull and Rotterdam, followed by a relatively short coach ride to the centre of Amsterdam. It may be a short break holiday, but it is an excellent way to see the sights and sounds of Amsterdam and to get a feel for the city.
The Port of Hull is easy to reach, with great road and rail links to the city centre.
Pride of Rotterdam looks like any other ferry on the outside but inside it is deceptively spacious, with plenty of space to relax.
P&O Ferries offer a variety of cabins to suit all budgets. Opt for Standard cabins for budget travel, or Club cabins for luxury.
Pride of Rotterdam has a choice of restaurants and cafés. Remember to pre-book your meals before you sail.
Whether you prefer a quiet drink, some retail therapy, or clubbing, you will find plenty to do onboard.
Europoort is located to the west of Rotterdam city centre and is where you will dock on a P&O Ferries service.
You can see an awful lot of what Amsterdam has to offer in just a few hours, if you plan and prepare carefully.
An Amsterdam mini cruise is short and sweet, but a great value experience nevertheless.
