Subject: Ferries from England
The ferries that operate from the Northern part of England (Hull to Rotterdam route) have just got some new cruise type ferries. It's an overnight trip and if you have a Youth Hostel Card (no matter what your age is) you may be able to obtain a discount on the fare. At the moment the new cruise ship operates only on alternate days (9.00pm departure) although you still have to check in before 5.00pm. Once in The Netherlands the coach from the ferry drops you off outside Rotterdam Central Railway station where you can hop on the Thalys train to Paris or take the Eurolines coach.
