Would have given 5 stars but the cabin was uncomfortabley warm and could not regulate it. Booking and checking in was straight forward and easy although a signpost to direct you to the queueing area at Amsterdam would have been appreciated. The ship was immaculately clean and the cabin was well laid out and spacious enough. Good shower. The ship is superbly managed. Food and drinks are somewhat expensive but they are good. I think the price we paid for the crossing was excellent (£141 for our camper) and would definitely use this service again.

29 Sep 2019Newcastle to Ijmuiden and return
While the ferry was uneventfull and the cabins reasonable.I found that not only are food prices at an extortionately level but the ability to get a cup of tea during the early hours is non existent.a coffee machine has in the last couple of weeks.been.provided at the customer.service centre.BUT NOT EVERYONE LIKES COFFEE. Also I find that the loading ramps.onto the motorcycle deck are very steep and can be slippy at times. The check in and loading staff I find are very courteous and helpfull.
