Ferries to Amsterdam from Liverpool

Unfortunately there are currently no ferries from Liverpool to Amsterdam.

With Liverpool situated on the west coast of Great Britain and Amsterdam located to the east, no passenger ferry company will ever operate a regular ferry service, the sailing would take over a day and would simply not be affordable. The only sailings out of Liverpool or anywhere near Merseyside are to Ireland.
