"Value for Money."
Reviewed 10 November 2013 by Michael Bradley
What you would expect from a cross channel ferry. Good value. My only complaint was that although I was first in the queue my cooked breakfast was cold, which was a shame as the content was good, continental next time.

"Great trip, thank you"
Reviewed 09 November 2013 by Louise
We came back on the Calais Seaways and it was fantastic. The children's play area is brilliant - all very well thought out (for young and older children) and right next to the bar (for parents). Looking forward to our next trip.

"Food quality is awful!!"
Reviewed 08 November 2013 by Richard
Booking was easy, the cost acceptable, the ship was clean and on time but the food--I had fish, chips and mushy peas-- was expensive at over £10, which I could live with for a quality meal but the standard of the food is appalling, I left half the meal, which for me is unheard of!! There is no way I would eat on board again, I will make sandwiches up next time!

The origins of Calais are obscure. It was founded as a fishing village some time prior to the 10th century. In 997, it was improved by the Count of Flanders and fortified by the Count of Boulogne in 1224. It is less than 40km from England - the Channel's shortest crossing - and is the busiest French passenger port. In the last war the British destroyed it to prevent it being used as a base for a German invasion. The French still refer to it as "the most English town in France", an influence that began after the battle of Crécy in 1346, when Edward III seized it for use as a beachhead in the Hundred Years War. Calais divides in two: Calais-Nord, the old town rebuilt after the war, with the place d'Armes and rue Royale as its focus, is separated by canals from sprawling Calais-Sud, centred around the Hôtel de Ville and the main shopping streets, boulevards Lafayette and Jacquard - the latter named after the inventor of looms.
Backed by its famous White Cliffs, Dover is located in Kent, on England's southeastern tip and is the UK's closest geographical point to Continental Europe. Every day of the year, frequent Cross Channel ferries travel between Dover and the French ports of Calais, Dunkirk and Boulogne.
One of the most important military towns in UK history, Dover is a rich tapestry of history. Few other towns can boast such a unique collection of relics and monuments dating back from the Bronze Age, the Roman Empire, the Saxon era, and virtually every other important historic period. While modern developments have seen many of Dover's important historical buildings swept away, there are still many important sites that must be preserved for future generations. The story of Dover is as old as civilization itself and we can only wonder at what future historical events this remarkable town will enter the history books for again.
