"A refreshing sailing"
We sailed Newhaven to Dieppe as an unusual combination of 7 people and a 2 seater van - the other 5 were cyclists on a charity cycle ride from Bedford to Paris. The Direct Ferries and Passport Office staff were both brillaint at sorting out the paperwork and speeding us on our way. After an excellent breakfast on board, the chance to catch a few zzz's sleep, we embarked very well refreshed. Thank you directferries. And yes, we have raised our £10,000 target for the Bedford Daycare Hospice.

First time I have used this route. The only fault for me was the seats, I could not get comfortable. This was the cheapest crossing available and it saved me driving time in France. Staff and crew were friendly and helpful. We were warned it could be a rough crossing but no one seemed to notice! I will use this crossing again

"Newhaven Dippe Crossing with DFDS"
This was the first time I'd sailed from Newhaven and I must say it is definately my first choice. So small and charming a port. The ship, Le D'Albatre is well fitted clean and well staffed. my only gripe was the aircon in the cabin was set way to cool and i struggled to stay warm and was too tired to do anythiung about it! The boarding staff are welcoming and reassuring. The facilities excellent. I'll be sailing back to UK with DFDS in a few weeks. Definately.
