  • "Great service and 2 pleasant trips"

    Booked a dover - Dunkerque return Flexi ticket, due to changes with our arrival time at the port each way we were offered and took more conveniently timed Dover - Calais ferries each way.  From booking on line, through making on line booking amendments, via friendliness & helpfulness of staff in both Dover & the 2 French ports, to service on board, this was a smooth and easy experience. Both ferries very quiet for leisure passengers and included meal voucher each way. 1 of 2 restaurants open and offered choice of 4 meals including vegetarian option. Also used premium lounges and enjoyed opportunity to fully stretch out on chaiselongue style seating after non stop-drive from/to Scotland, though low passenger numbers meant we would have been able to do this in standard seating areas too. Use DFDS whenever we go to the continent and always happy. New ship Cote d'Opal not just clean and neat but really friendly design / colour template to boot, made the crossing in plenty sunshine feel like a mini cruise.

  • "Trip Dover to Dunkirk"

    Trip done during weekdays in February. Not busy in both ports. Quite quick to go through customs despite all the checks. Polite staff, very helpful especially due to storm conditions. A bit of wait at Dover’s port without communication from staff to explain what was happening. Food was free, basic (fish and chips, vegs).

  • "DFDS CROSSING - DUNKIRK to DOVER"

    The Check In was efficient and without problems, bearing in mind the heightened security and COVID restrictions. Once on board, all staff were polite and courteous and the meal was both wholesome and delicious. I was able to use the On Board Shopping which again was well stocked and priced to meet my budget. All in all, the whole process of booking and sailing was first class and I will always use DFDS in the short channel crossing. I will recommend to all friends and family when travelling to the continent.

  • "Great service, good wine"

    A kind ground staff member included us in a special last-minute four-car convoy to catch the ferry before the sailing we were booked on to. Once on board, we were particularly impressed by the quality of the mini plastic bottles of claret, and the proper glass wine glasses. The bar/lounge was newly fitted out, and everything ran to time. At the height of COVID-19 chaos, all this smooth functioning and attention to detail was especially impressive and appreciated.
