This was a nice change from Dover Calais. Close to home, comfortable boats and plenty to do. The food was OK, if not a little expensive, but it killed some time on the crossing. The "soft play" was a padded cell, but it had my...More

The reason it is cheap is because of what happens at both ends of your journey. If you are early, your car is stored on decks four and five. When the boat docks they are the last decks to be released and you have probably...More

I think that this service provides really excellent value for money. The ferry is relaxing and stress free! There is a well stocked bar, which also sells snacks. The food isn’t amazing in the cafeteria, but it’s all you need for a 4 hour crossing....More

Traveled Newhaven to Dieppe on the 9am crossing. Checking quick and about 30 minute wait to board. Ferry departed right on time. Plenty of seats, reasonably priced restaurant and a fairly decent but small duty free shop. On arrival in Dieppe we were offloaded within...More

We used the overnight crossing from Newhaven - Dieppe. I was a little nervous as no-one seemed to have heard of this company when I booked it. However....clean and comfortable cabins, reasonably priced refreshments, efficient check in and out process and so much cheaper than...More

Long waits at newhaven and Dieppe. Must have the worse restaurant and duty free shop of any ferry. Travelled back, very weary on a Friday evening and were 'entertained' by the worse rock band I have ever heard! Very, very loud and useless. Why did...More

Boat is o.k. when not busy. Food and toilets are usually a bit grim but a fairly comfortable efficient way to get to France. However the trip is always ruined by the shambolic , slow, amateurish disembarkation at Newhaven, which adds at least an hour...More

Went this route rather than our usual Dover to Calais, all very easy and not overcrowded. The ship is a bit tighter to navigate when parking a motorhome but no problem, slept well in one of the cabins.
