We chose DFDS crossing from Le Havre to Portsmouth because the price was less than half that of Caen to Portsmouth with Brittany Ferries. We left on time and arrived on time after a smooth crossing. My comments are as follows: (1) The food offered was adequate but not as hot as it should have been (2) Considerable areas of the ship were being repainted but no-one was working (3) Disembarkation took a very long time (50 minutes) I would definitely use DFDS again in spite of these minor criticisms

Le Havre is a city in Normandy, northern France, at the mouth of the Seine. The city was founded in 1517, when it was named Franciscopolis after Francis I of France, and subsequently named Le Havre-de-Grâce. Le Havre simply means the harbour or the port. Its construction was ordered to replace the ancient harbours of Honfleur and Harfleur whose utility had decreased due to silting. The history of the city is inextricably linked to its harbour. In the 18th century, as trade from the West Indies was added to that of France and Europe, it began to grow. During the 19th century, it became an industrial center. Devastated in the Second World War, the ferry port has been rebuilt into a lively, bustling town that is France's largest foreign trade port, and the fifth biggest European port. It's not only a large commercial port or an industrial centre; the city also has a yachting harbour and a beach that has been awarded the Pavillon bleu label.
Britain's foremost naval station, Portsmouth occupies the bulbous peninsula of Portsea Island, on the eastern flank of a huge, easily defended harbour. The ancient Romans raised a fortress on the northernmost edge of this inlet, and a small port developed during the Norman era, but this strategic location wasn't fully exploited until Tudor times, when Henry VII established the world's first dry dock here and made Portsmouth a royal dockyard. It has flourished ever since and nowadays Portsmouth is a large industrialized city, its harbour clogged with naval frigates, ferries bound for the continent or the Isle of Wight, and swarms of dredgers and tugs.
Old Portsmouth, based around the original harbour, preserves some Georgian and a little Tudor character. East of here is Southsea , a residential suburb of terraces with a resort strewn along its shingle beach, where a mass of B&Bs face stoic naval monuments.
