  • "Ferry to Dieppe"

    Apart from the gents toilets on side of one deck being locked and unavailable for use on the return trip I wouldn't criticise this service at all. I shall be happy to use this service again. I didn't use the catering but it all looked fine but the main thing was we were comfortable and on time.

    Thank you, once again, Direct Ferries - and DFDS Seaways, for a quite restful sea crossing, Newhaven - Dieppe. We wouldn't chose any other route.

  • "Newhave Dieppe"

    Prompt and efficient. A welcome as you came aboard from one of the crew. Spotless and comfortable. Cabins very good. Would use this service again. Oh, grub good as well apart from the "duck pie" which was rather dry and tasteless.

  • "Good trip"

    Check-in was simple, loading efficient and the ferry was punctual. The staff were helpful although the chef was extremely vocal with his colleagues! Exchange rate was shocking which made the food expensive but the food was enjoyable. I think it would be useful to label the Reception desk as Information desk or change the announcements to say that information is available at the Reception desk. Hand dryers in the toilets weren't very effective but the facilities were clean. The shop wasn't open for long enough and opening and closing times weren't announced On the whole the journey was fine; the vessel left and arrived on time which is always a must as far as I'm concerned

  • "Smooth and speedy"

    We travelled on the 1am ferry Dieppe to Newhaven. More info re loading process would be good and dimming the lights in the reclining seat area would be welcome. Otherwise we like this crossing as it is convenient and less subject to hold-ups than any Docer/Calais crossing.

  • "France for the first time."

    I didn't know what my expectations would be on my trip to Dieppe or how I would manage going on my own. The ferry crossing was really good and the customer service was excellent. Dieppe is a lovely city and there's so much to see and do, the restaurants around the quey all want your trade and the prices are amazing. The French people are just lovely and I'm planning another trip before Christmas, I travelled up to Reoun and spent the day exploring the old City. See you again soon. Sean

  • "A good crossing"

    We were very pleased with our crossing from Newhaven - Dieppe at the end of August. Couldn't fault the ferry itself, spacious, clean and decent enough facilities. Ideally would have had slightly more for children, particularly younger children to fdo, perhaps a more substantial soft play. Also the price of food etc on the crossing is pretty steep which is although sadly anticipated, still disappointing. The only other disappointment was the lack of facilities prior to boarding. A place to get a decent coffee and snack would make a fortune! On the same note, Newhaven port itself could do with a spruce up, not a fortune spent but it's not the most glamorous vision to meet you on depart/arrival.

  • "Great journey"

    Great journey from Newhaven to Dieppe (& return). Left on time after an unhurried check in and boarding. Clean comfortable cabins. Pleasant ships with everything we needed. Good hot food. Great cup of coffee from the upstairs bar! Although fairly small there was a well stocked shop. Overall very pleased with sailing this route. Would use this route and DFDS again.

  • "Efficient Service"

    The price of the tickets was very good and the ship itself had reasonable prices in the food outlets. The journey went by quickly. We are hoping to use again next year this time with our Vespa! It took a bit longer to get off at Newhaven but that was due to Border Control.

  • "Newhaven to Dieppe route"

    Very good service, no delays on our crossings. Friendly and helpful staff. Shop was good and not stupidly expensive, but reasonably priced. Only downside was that you could not hear the televisions (sound turned off) which seemed a bit pointless having them on. Breakfast (cooked English) was O.K. but the mushrooms were tasteless with an unpleasant texture. However, overall I would recommend this route (Newhaven to Dieppe) and we would definitely use this route again when visiting North West France.
