, UK United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 20, 2007 -- Leading ferry operator Stena Line is offering holidaymakers the chance to experience a more exciting New Yearâs Eve this year, the Dutch way.
The Hook of Holland is situated conveniently near Hollandâs capital, Amsterdam, which is just under an hour and a half away, making it easy for party goers to experience the wonders of Amsterdam, a fantastically vibrant city which really comes alive on New Yearâs Eve.
Tourists can join in traditional Dutch celebrations such as watching spectacular firework displays in Dam Square or the Leidseplein, or alternatively check out the internationally renowned Supperclub in Amsterdam which hosts their glamorous New Yearâs Eve celebrations from 9pm. Revellers can witness world famous DJâs, while sipping a never ending supply of champagne and munch on a selection of world class nibbles until 4am.
For the young at heart an equally convenient location is Rotterdam, known as the dance capital of Holland, where visitors can see in the New Year at one of Rotterdamâs dance havens or enjoy the brisk Dutch air with a stroll around Westelijk Handelsterrein harbour.
After a full evening of revelry and fun, the bravest of holidaymakers can take part in the traditional Nieuwjaarvsduik at one of Hollandâs many beaches on New Years day. Nieuwjaarvsduik (New Yearâs dive) is the traditional swim in the North Sea on the 1st of January, a guaranteed way to clear the cobwebs from the previous eveningâs festivities before enjoying the comfortable, and warm, return ferry to Harwich.
Visitors can enjoy a leisurely ferry crossing from Harwich to Hook of Holland on Stena Lineâs North Sea route and cruise in style relaxing in the comfort of one of Stena Lineâs new cabins with high quality Dux mattresses on the overnight crossing arriving refreshed and ready to enjoy the New Yearâs Eve festivities the following morning. Hardy revellers travelling by rail or foot could even start their celebrations early with a little tipple in one of the two new bars on the Stena Hollandica or Stena Britannica.
During the voyage, guests could choose to indulge in a spot of post-Christmas shopping and take advantage of some of the many onboard offers or venture to one of two new onboard eateries, Food City and Metropolitan, for a delicious dinner or lunch.
