  • "Newhaven to Dieppe return"

    Good voyage both to Dieppe and back. Only two areas that I say are of high priority to improve: The WIFI which didn't really work at all on either journey. The pollution from the exhaust stack was unbelievable. Acrid black smoke pouring out of the exhaust like it was 1970. This would spill down across the deck so it wasn't possible to go out on deck with the kids. As Diesel particulate matter is a known carcinogen it is unbelievable that it is allowed in the EU.

  • "Air Conditioning"

    We love the Ferries, without them we would not be going to France. However, on our return journey on the Seven Sisters, the Air Conditioning was far too cold, everyone was wrapping up with whatever they had. We were unprepared for the cold, and were glad to get in the car at the end of the journey. As a retired ships Captain myself on giant Container Vessels, it was my duty to carry out inspections. This should also happen on Ferries. Either the Captain or one of the staff should go round the passenger decks after perhaps an hour into the crossing, to see if all is well and that the passengers are happy/content. We find that the announcements are just about impossible to hear/understand.

    The ship is clean and well run. It is a great pity that the Restaurant has never opened because the Self-service cafeteria is of variable quality. The fish and chips were awful, dry and overcooked, the very worst you could be unfortunate to find on your plate. The staff were good and attentive.
