DFDS cooks up something new on Newcastle-Amsterdam route

DFDS is refreshing its restaurants on the Newcastle to Amsterdam route as part of extensive plans to improve customer dining choices.

And it is reducing the price as well, with up to 34 per cent savings on pre-booked meals.

The new restaurants are launching on King Seaways and Princess Seaways from Friday (26 January).

DFDS has refreshed its on board dining options following feedback from customers

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

“The pop-up restaurant trial in 2017 in particular was a great test of the water through a diverse and changing menu. We’ve taken inspiration from the trial in order to propel our menu choice forward.”

The Explorer’s Kitchen will see improved buffet breakfast and dinner options including an international selection from America to the Mediterranean, the Far East and India. Meals can be pre-booked at £9 for breakfast / £18 for a buffet dinner for adults and £6.30 / £13.50 respectively for children aged 4-11. Children under three years-old dine for free.

On offer in the Explorer’s Kitchen, guests will find salmon and crème cheese rolls, duck rilette, veal schnitzel and puff pastry baked fish, as well as Greek meatballs, Chicken tagine, paella, calamari and Chicago deep-pan pizza amongst many other international dishes. Vegan options include red lentil dahl, root vegetable tartin and vegetable korma.

Meanwhile, the North Sea Bistro is to provide an à-la-carte fine dining option for customers with pre-booked two course meals priced at £31.50 for adults and £18 for children. The restaurant replaces the DFDS Blue Riband restaurant and puts the emphasis on seasonal food quality and fresh ingredients. Sommelier-trained waiters can recommend wine from an extensive global selection.

For refreshments, the new Coffee Crew will replace the Lighthouse Café, with Starbucks-trained baristas offering fresh Starbucks coffee, tea, hot chocolate and frappuccinos, plus an extensive range of cakes, biscuits and sweet treats. The Coffee Crew will sit by the children’s play area, allowing families to enjoy the trip together comfortably in one place.
