British funk-pop band Level 42 and 80’s electronic pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark are to headline the fourth instalment of DFDS’ popular annual music mini cruises between Newcastle and Amsterdam this November.
The North Sea Sounds mini cruise offers a night of live music and DJs that have passengers dancing the night away as they sail to the European mainland. Past performers have included Craig Charles, Martha and the Vandellas and Joy Division’s Peter Hook.
The 2018 sailings will depart Newcastle for Amsterdam on consecutive weekends, 9 November and 16 November, with early bird prices starting from just £84pp return based on four sharing, or £108pp return based on two persons sharing. This includes 2 nights on board in an en-suite cabin, breakfast & dinner on both crossings, and return coach transfers to Amsterdam. Passengers will also have up to 5 hours exploring the vibrant Dutch capital.
