When I went to Norway with my dad, I was about my son's age and was fascinated by the various methods of travel... planes and trams and buses and ferries and boats and bikes...
I saw there is an overnight Stena Line ferry from Harwich>Hook of Holland. At first I thought it might even save us a little bit since we would avoid a night of other lodgings, but it seems pricey enough that it would be about the same by the time we pay for the train to Harwich before the ferry and then the train to Amsterdam after.
Have others found this to be a worthwhile experience? Something a 17 year old (who admittedly wears bow ties, eats peppermints and loves butter pecan ice cream) would enjoy? Seems like a good fit for my artsy-teen/geriatric hybrid kid? Also seems like a decent amount of fussing around.
Are there seafaring (or other recommended alternatives) that one would suggest?
