Leading ferry operator Stena Line is offering holidaymakers the chance to experience New Year’s Eve in Holland from just £56 per person*.

Stena Line passengers can take a leisurely ferry crossing from Harwich to the Hook of Holland and arrive refreshed and ready to enjoy the New Year’s Eve festivities. Passengers can choose a day crossing, where they can relax and enjoy the journey with meals included in the ticket price, or . Alternatively, they could opt for an overnight journey and enjoy a peaceful sleep in the privacy of an ensuite cabin.**

During the voyage, guests can indulge in a spot of post-Christmas shopping and take advantage of some of the fantastic onboard offers. Children can be kept entertained whilst watching the latest release at the onboard cinema. The family pet needn’t be left home alone in the UK as it too can come aboard the ferry crossing to Holland.***

The Hook of Holland is conveniently close to Holland’s capital, Amsterdam. This city really comes alive on New Year’s Eve and locals and tourists can join in the traditional Dutch celebrations - watching spectacular firework displays whilst eating oliebollen (sweet pastries) in Dam Square and the Leidseplein, the main areas of New Year’s revelry.

An alternative, equally convenient location is Rotterdam - known as the dance capital of Holland, visitors can see in the New Year at Westelijk Handelsterrein harbour. Whilst in Rotterdam take some time to visit Rotterdam zoo and the museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, which are wonderful attractions for families.

Another city located very near Hook of Holland is the centre of the Dutch government, The Hague. New Year’s Eve celebrations in this regal city commence with the Holland Casino Fireworks on Scheveningen beach and, if holidaymakers are feeling brave, they can take part in the Nieuwjaarvsduik the following day. Nieuwjaarvsduik, (New Year’s dive) is the traditional swim in the North Sea on the 1st of January, a guaranteed way to clear the cobwebs from the previous evenings festivities!
