  • "Good velue"

    Great value as we managed to get a £49 ticket. This was a 1am ferry but managed to get some sleep in the reclining chairs. Would definately take this ferry again at this price. Beats all the hassle of Calais as well (Newhaven/Dieppe).

  • "Easy trip!"

    We haven't used the Newhaven /Dieppe crossing for years but thought we would have a change and we're glad we did! Quick loading(but we were out of school holidays) left a few minutes late but that time was made up. Great boat with good facilities, comfortable seating and clean. Easy off load on arrival in France. Return leg was as good but let down by very slow off load at Newhaven, sat in our car for almost 1hour to disembark? Would definitely use DFDS again as enjoyed a comfortable crossing!

  • "Dieppe-Newhaven"

    The trip was good and enjoyable. It took perhaps longer tghan we expected to drive off the ship after docking; I think about 30 mins. The main delay was passport control on arrival which was unexpected. We had had two passport checks already in Dieppe and supposed that this was adequate. The system for Calais/Dunkirk to Dover is presumably different but on arrival in Dover there is no further passport check I believe, which makes getting home much easier. Otherwise, all good.

  • "Seven Sisters this summer"

    Sailed during a busy time so the toilets were not as clean as they usually are. Queues for food and toilets but the sailing was punctual and driving on and off was very quick and efficient.

  • "Pleasant sailing"

    Travelled from Dieppe to Newhaven with my wife after driving from Portugal over two days, to say I was tired was an understatement. Once on board, I enquired about a cabin, although it was only a 4 hour or so crossing, I was desperate for a good sleep before the onward journey to Scotland. I asked at the reception and a very pleasant member of staff took my name and on the ferry departing, contacted ourselves and a further couple by the speaker system and we were given a cabin at a reasonable cost. The cabin was perfect and had a shower which we were glad of prior to going to our vehicle on arrival at Newhaven. Full marks to DFDS, no hold ups at any stage and a pleasant restful crossing, with no problems that Calais was having. Would certainly recommend DFDS to anyone driving to any part of Europe.

  • "Ferries are great!!!"

    We had never used a ferry before, and were a bit apprehensive, but we needn't of worried, it was great on both journeys. Access, parking, seating, space, food, staff, price, every aspect was great and we enjoyed the rest in a choice of very comfortable seating! The price was also very good. We would certainly not hesitate to use direct ferries again

  • "Suited us perfectly"

    The port experience at both Newhaven and Dieppe was very efficient , a little waiting to get through border control en route home. The queues for food and drink on the ship disappear after the first hour, so find a seat and relax.

  • "August crossing in camper van"

    The booking arrangements are clear and simple and in cost terms are good value. On both outward and return legs the ferry left and arrived on time and announcements during the crossing in English and French were appropriate and helpful. Seating was adequate but we did not purchase food. Toilets were clean. The loading and off-loading were very well organised and inspired confidence.

    Fantastic Trip, a small delay when leaving Newhaven due to the increase in passengers from Dover (Operation Stack). Would recommend the option of a cabin as they are great little rooms to have a little sleep in. Food from the canteen was excellent, friendly staff and all round great trip. Well Recommended!
