I know the connection
Stavanger to Newcastle was stopped in 2008.
the only way I know is from Esbjerg (Denmark) to Newcastle and Harwich...

i am now thinking about going from amsterdam to newcastle. but the prices are very high (176 or 158€ on the days that i want to go -DFDS Seaways). does anybody know if it is possible to go without booking a cabin? i don't mind sitting around on deck all night watching the sea. this is actually why i want to go by ferry and not fly. i dont want to be in a cabin.

on the ferry Amsterdam-Newcastle you need a cabin when travelling overnight... and it is really expensive. :(
myabe better to travel from Hoek van Holland (you reach it by free IC from Amsterdam via Rotterdam) to Harwich and then take a train to the North of the UK (also no supplements). then you can use a cheaper cabin (total: ticket + cabin = ~ EUR 60) at the ferry Hoek to Harwich: https://en.rail.cc/hoek-van-hol ... y/12384/16

that's often the problem (but not only a rail problem): the shortest and fastest way is the most expensive one.
if you want to save money, you often have to travel not the direct way and have some more changes. but that's life. :)
all the best, Peter :)

yes thats true! and i think a long route on the ground is still better than flying, because you get a better feeling of where you are and how far you are really going. you see much more places out the window and every time you change trains... only walking or cycling is even better than train and ship. if only i had half a year off...
