"Top bunk mountaineering"

Reviewed 25 February 2015 by Alan

We were somewhat peterbed to discover that we had had allocated to us a two berth abin with a n upper and lower bunk on the outward journey. No indication had been given that htis would be the case; indeed, I was unaware that such cabin arrangements existed on midern ships. As a 75 year old person,I can tewll you getting in asnd out of a top bunk is not easy and not a littlwe hazaardous. Not a patch on the Hull Rotterdam ferry for comfort. Doubt if we will travel this way again.

"Trajet Newhaven-Dieppe"

Reviewed 23 February 2015 by Anonymous

J'ai pris le bateau de Newhaven à Dieppe, un dimanche soir à 23h. Arrivée à Newhaven, il faisait très froid, mais j'ai pu me mettre au chaud au port, en face de ma voiture, ce qui est très pratique en attendant l'embarquement. L'embarquement a été rapide et efficace. Une fois dans le bateau, je n'avais pas pris de cabine mais je me suis installée confortablement sur les sièges à l'étage, et j'ai réussi à dormir quelques heures. Avant de débarquer, j'ai profité d'un bon petit déjeuner. Le débarquement a été aussi rapide que l'embarquement. Pour le prix payé, 42€, je suis extrèmement satisfaite!

"1st sailing"

Reviewed 22 February 2015 by Anonymous

We have nearly always sailed from Newhaven but as we were going to Holland we decided to go by DFDS. It was the wisest choice, the boat was very clean, the restaurant served good food. We had hoped to get a cabin but this route does not have that facility. What surprised me is the cleanliness not like other sailings I have been on. The staff were very helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. We are going to take this route each time we go to Belgium and Holland. The boats are far more superior.

"Comfortable and Affordable"

Reviewed 18 February 2015 by Barney

I was on the deck 2 which is noisier than others as it is nearer the engines but I only paid £40 so I spent an extra 99p on some earplugs before I got on the boat. No issues with arrival times and the bus was promptly waiting to take people into Amsterdam when we arrived. If you don't already know though things are expensive one you are on the boat but the facilities are decent.
