Ferry and Cruise Shipping

DFDS Seaways offers passenger services over more than 130 years and operates more than 10 years the daily ferry connection IJmuiden - Newcastle. The location and the available key and handling facilities at the Felison terminal offer a favorable assumption to strengthen the market position for cruise.

DFDS Seaways BV

In 1996 DFDS started at IJmuiden with one departure per week and has in 10 years evolved to an established daily connection between IJmuiden and New Castle. This connection focusses firstly on passengers and secondly on the freight market.

Felison Terminal

The Felison Cruise and Ferry Ship Terminal is the ideal stopping place for cruise vessels visiting The Netherlands:

  • A stunning location close to the vibrant city of Amsterdam saving time and money
  • Superb architect designed modern terminal buildings with great facilities for passengers
The Felison Terminal is a striking landmark at the most westerly point of IJmuiden, on the seaward side of the locks, and at the entrance of the Amsterdam North Sea Canal, gateway to the Netherlands.
The terminal has open water berths, which makes it an ideal place for cruise ships and ferries.
With a length of about 700 feet and a depth of 28 feet, the cruise quay is very suitable for the larger mid size cruise ships.

Buses are available on site to take passengers to Amsterdam and other tourist locations. Amsterdam and Schiphol International Airport are just half an hour away by road.
