​Discover Holland & Amsterdam

Visit Amsterdam when travelling on the Newcastle to Amsterdam cruise route, and spend time getting to know this amazing city. ​

With its picturesque canals, unique city center, and world-famous museums and historical sites, Amsterdam is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe.

Despite being relatively small, Amsterdam has all the advantages of a big city, including culture, history, entertainment, and ease of transport. Thanks to the canals which flow through the city and serve as thoroughfares, road traffic in central Amsterdam is fairly limited, making it a pedestrian's paradise. ​
