This is such a cheap way to get into France. On top of that it has a very reasonably priced bar and a canteen with a couple of hot meal options. Even has WiFi, which admittedly is limited but functional for mid crossing. Will use...More

Never disappointed, this time as usual the ferry sailed on time. Well organised loading and unloading, we didn’t have too long to wait. Staff on board polite and helpful.

Our trip took us from Dieppe to Newhaven and was a pleasant experience. The price was very reasonable and we would definitely do this again. Getting to the ferry is walking distance from the Dieppe harbor, but because we had two suitcases, we took a...More

DFDS are a super way to travel to Dieppe. You board quickly. The Toilets are clean. The restaurant is good. And the four hour journey aboard the Ferry goes quickly. It is a sea voyage of splendour to start your holiday. Much better to go...More
