Ferry operator DFDS will introduce new dining options from 26 January 2018 onboard King Seaways and Princess Seaways, which travel on the Newcastle-Amsterdam route.

“We’ve taken the feedback from our customers and have adjusted our onboard offering to reflect new catering concepts that we feel will meet and exceed their needs,” said Pete Akerman, marketing director for DFDS.

The Explorer’s Kitchen will offer an improved buffet breakfast and more dinner options, including an international selection from America to the Mediterranean, the Far East and India.

The North Sea Bistro will replace DFDS’ Blue Riband restaurant and offers fine dining options, with an emphasis on seasonal food quality and fresh ingredients, and sommelier-trained waiters able to provide recommendations from an extensive global wine list.

The new Coffee Crew will replace the Lighthouse Café. Starbucks-trained baristas will offer fresh coffee, tea, chocolate and frappuccinos and a range of sweet treats. Coffee Crew will be located close to the kid’s play area, allowing families to enjoy the trip together.

“The pop-up restaurant trial in 2017 in particular was a great test of the water through a diverse and changing menu,” said Akerman. “We’ve taken inspiration from the trial in order to propel our menu choice forward, and believe our customers will enjoy our new eateries as they travel on our Newcastle-Amsterdam route.”
