"A good crossing on a budget"
We booked to go to France at short notice, and found DFDS to be the best value crossing, allowing us a leisurely journey down to Portsmouth, with time for a meal before boarding, and a reasonable arrival time in France rather than the middle of the night!
The Seven Sisters is clearly not as recently renovated as some other ferries - most of the reclining seats we saw seemed to be stuck in one position and it was just a case of luck if yours was upright, or reclined, also the TV being left on all night in the reclining areas wasn't great for getting a good nights sleep. That said, there were plenty of people who had come prepared with sleeping bags and roll mats, laid out around the lounge areas, and along the floor under the reclining seats, which is what I will be doing next time I cross!
Breakfast was a good serving for a reasonable cost, made even better by the fantastic sunrise if you sit on the correct side of the boat.
