  • "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!

  • "First time crossers"

    First time crossers on this route, we found the lounge immediately and the seats were comfortable. Just don't get up or someone sits in it!! Only had coffee so can't comment about the catering. Loading and unloading was very smooth. Would certainly use again.
