  • "Dover to Dunquerk "

    Paid extra for lounge seat. Lounge was cold on entry and remained so throughout the journey. Swivel chairs need upgrade. Otherwise good trip with attentive steward. On time on outward journey; a little late on return.

  • "Worked well in the end"

    The ferry was great - left on time and docked on time and getting on/off was quick and efficient. Didn't try the food so can't comment on that but the coffee was fine and there was ample space to sit and relax. I much appreciate the flexibility on ferry slot as we got stuck in heavy traffic a couple of hours away from the port but we called up and they said no problem - happens a lot -and we had the flex to get on the next ferry at no extra cost which was perfect. the lady on the phone was very helpful and knowledgeable - the only issue was it took us over 20 mins waiting on the phone to speak to her which seems even longer when you are crawling along a motorway in a traffic jam with your ferry crossing getting further and further away! Anyway, all worked out well and I would book with them again.

  • "Nice trip"

    It was pretty nice. As little complaints, I remember only 2 facts - at Dunkirk: - filty customer toilets (on groundfloor) - the marble plate in the first hallway: This sea-station was established and launched by minister of transport, bla bla... Nobody cares.

  • "Dover to Dunkirk DFDS Seaways"

    Brilliant experience from start to finish..... Dunkirk although more industrial than other ports is a lot more hassle free to get out of and into. Travelled with our dog, which again was hassle free at both ports. Would recommend DFDS, ships facilities were more than adequate for a two hour crossing.

  • "No Hassle"

    We recently travelled with DFDS from Dover to Dunkirk on a flexi ticket which we find is invaluable. No hassle at all, the ship was a little bit delayed on the return journey but it was not a problem.

    Easy access to Belgium (first stop). Would currently avoid Calais anyway. Bathroom in Dunkirk very busy with lorry drivers doing their thing, and minimum catering facilities at the Port. Worth it for peace of mind.

  • "Excellent Service"

    Very good pricing and punctual timekeeping. Boarding and disembarking was very fast and efficient and there are plenty of eating places for snacks, light meals, coffees and larger main meals. Would definitely travel with DFDS again. Also, definitely much easier and more pleasant going via Dunkirk instead of Calais.

  • "A pleasant and uncomplicated experience"

    We enjoyed a very pleasant trip with DFDS. The boarding was very straightforward and the ship was clean and modern with plenty of facilities and comfortable seating. Drinks and snacks were reasonably priced and of good quality. We would certainly use DFDS again. Our only complaint was that the vending machines at the ferry terminal in Dunkirk did not work properly taking in all 3 euros of our money but not dispensing ANY goods!! As there was nobody available to complain to, we put it down to experience but we feel this needs to be checked. Otherwise, everything was excellent.

  • "Nice ship. Shame about the food."

    This was my first trip on this route with DFDS. I liked the design of the boat, particularly the view over the bows from the restaurant. Not too impressed with the signage - we entered the snack bar from aft and thought that that was all the food on offer. It was only later that we discovered the restaurant. Not at all impressed with the food - the fish and chips was of the tired flakes of fish and tired chips standard.

  • "On time and Easy"

    On arrival at Dover 2 1/4 hrs before our due ferry crossing, we were asked if we would like to get the earlier boat. "Yes" we replied and then we had an easy directed drive through each necessary area of security and straight onto the ferry. The crossing allowed us to catch up on missed sleep after a good breakfast which was hot and well received at 6.30am. The restaurant was clean and easy to use, with a variety of choices.
