"Excellent with pets"
Reviewed 04 September 2014 by Rosalind
Great and efficient with pets. The actual ferry leads lots to be desired even at 4AM! Good decent espresso coffee would be great.Duo currency aboard would be good. Absolute daylight robbery changing notes in the machines. It would be great to have a vending machine which did snacks and cold drinks as the barman was grumpy and not helpful (understandable since it was 5AM!) It is the cheapest and they are good with pets so I would recommend it having warned friends!!

Efficient check in despite foreign 'hitch-hikers'. Late start as above , but arrived on time. Catering a bit sparse, but small number of leisure passengers-trucking kept separate. Affordable & efficient!!

This was the third time we have used this crossing, but the first time with DFDS. We have used Direct Ferries several times to book our ferry trips finding the web site very useful and relativity easy to use. The fact that you can see all the different crossings on one site helps. We chose the early crossing as we had quite a distance to travel in the UK. The vehicle check in was smooth, on presenting our passports the, we received our boarding pass and all details needed to board. The loading was a bit slow, but this was because the French Immigration control officer decided to leave for some reason. We booked a cabin to allow us a few hours quite and a place to freshen up, well worth the extra paid. The 4 berth cabin is spacious and quite. All in all the crossing was good.

Everything was fine. One remark : I find not easy to change money on the ship. The machines did work well but if there had been a counter where I could change, I would have changed more money than I have and probably spend more than I have.

Crowded between high cliff headlands, Dieppe is an enjoyably small-scale port in the Seine-Maritime département of Haute-Normandie, France. During the nineteenth century, Parisians came here by train to take the sea air, promenading along the front. First recorded as a small fishing settlement in 1030, it was an important prize fought over during the Hundred Years' War. Dieppe housed the most advanced French school of cartography in the 16th century, and was the premiere port of the kingdom in the 17th century. On July 23, 1632 300 colonists headed for New France departed. At the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, Dieppe lost 3000 of its citizens, who fled abroad. It was an important target in wartime; the town was largely destroyed by Anglo-Dutch naval bombardment in 1694 and rebuilt after 1696. On August 19, 1942, during the WWII, it was the site of the Dieppe Raid, a bloody landing by Allied soldiers, mainly Canadian.
Newhaven used to be named Meeching until the 16th Century when a great storm diverted the course of the Sussex Ouse so forming a NewHaven.
Wealden oak, wine and spirits from the continent and slab ice from the Baltic were shipped through the port. The town flourished with shipbuilding yards and breweries. The railway reached Newhaven in the 1840s and the first ferry service was established soon after, providing the shortest land- sea route between London and Paris. Both the ferry service and the Dieppe Raid have forged strong links between Newhaven and Dieppe. Each year the Mayor of Dieppe and entourage are the guests of Newhaven for a commemorative service to the 1,000 Canadian and Allied servicemen who embarked from Newhaven and died on the beaches of Dieppe. Their memory is preserved by an impressive granite plinth in a garden of remembrance by the harbour.
