C Class

Operated by DFDS Seaways on the Calais Dover route

The DFDS Seaways ferries can carry in excess of 1900 passengers, with ample space for passenger and freight vehicles. The state of the art vessels include a choice of bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as a shop for any last minute purchases or souvenir buying. Travellers of all ages will find plenty to keep them occupied whilst on board, with a designated kids area, video games section and plenty of areas to relax and take in the sea vistas.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Premium Lounge seating provides those seeking a more luxurious journey with the ideal setting. As well as private area seating you are treated to complimentary food and drinks, newspapers and have the option to kick back and watch some TV. From your comfortable chair you can enjoy beautiful sea views.

Onboard Food and Drink

On board, you will find a self-service restaurant serving a range of delicious hot and cold dishes, freshly cooked throughout the day. Vegetarian alternatives and children's options are also available. If you would prefer something lighter, there are also plenty of cafes and bars where you can relax and admire the superb sea views.

Onboard Shopping

You don’t have to just sit around whilst making your crossing, with DFDS you can indulge in some retail therapy and maybe treat yourself to a little something while on the move. The Sea Shop includes great deals on fragrances, skincare and cosmetics, as well as being stocked up on gifts, souvenirs, magazines, books and sweets. The kids can also enjoy the range of goods with plenty to choose from the toys and games selection. Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten to pack some of your much needed holiday essentials. You can find everything from phrase books, maps and guides to toiletries and adaptors.

Travelling with Children

Keeping the little ones can prove to be one of the greatest challenges when travelling abroad but this is made a lot easier with a dedicated soft play area. Here they can safely run around, burn some energy and enjoy the journey. Those youngsters who have outgrown the play area can pass the time in the arcade area, where they will find a number of video and racing games.

Accessibility

The C Class vessels all have lift access parking, passenger lifts so you can move freely between the decks and wheelchair accessible public toilet facilities.

Please Note: Whilst we have taken great care in making our C Class guide as accurate as possible, onboard facilities, services and entertainment may vary depending on the date and time of year that you travel, facilities mentioned may change without notification and ferry companies reserve the right to operate vessels other than those mentioned at time of booking without prior notification.

  • "Dover to Calais and back"

    Had a great crossing to Calais on 10.3.22 9.30pm. Very quiet on board, mostly lorry drivers. Free meal voucher was very much appreciated too, variety of food and big portions.  Return ferry at 11.50 am on 20.3.22 was much the same, a little busier, food was good too.

  • "A channel crossing which feels like a cruise"

    I felt that everything was handled with great efficiency and courtesy. The ship was clean and the free meal was delicious! My only criticism is that DFDS only had one check-in booth open - I nearly missed my reserved sailing despite arriving over an hour early at the port. A second check-in clerk would allow "un-problematic" customers to bypass a blockage!

  • "Return to calais"

    Outgoing trip understandably delayed slightly due to storm but all went well with clear information when booking in to the delayed times and kept to this well. Return journey we turned up early on the off chance we could get an earlier ferry and did with no problems at all. Ferry journey was smooth and the food was better than expected! All staff polite and helpful.

    All good with DFDS. Not very good with Direct ferries. When I was booking the trip, Dover/Calais crossing, I got to the last page where you press ok to book trip. The page froze and wouldn’t do anything, I tried to contact direct ferries about this issue but there is no number and trying to send a msg was not successful. It was a day later when I received confirmation of the trip. I find it very difficult to understand why these days there is not a number to talk to someone regarding problems booking in.. I

  • "Calais-Dover-Calais 18th and 24th February 2022"

    I travelled over on 18th Feb - Storm Eunice ! The ferry was cancelled. The return trip Dover - Caélais was perfect. I had to buy a very expensive Eurotunnel ticket to get to England. My complaint would be that not enough warning was given for the cancellation. The offer of a free meal is very nice and I enjoy the Premium Lounge which I take every time now. Your staff is un failingly pleasant. Please for this free meal which is generous in the pandemic times could we have a decent vegetable with the fish. I do not like chips with everything but like the fish and would love a vegetable other than chopped up carrots, sweet corn, broad beans and peas! Otherwise I am very happy to always take DFDS across to England and back.

  • "DFDS Seaways Dover to Calais return"

    It has been a while since we had travelled abroard using the ferry service. I have to say it was a good experience using the ferry as the ship had no delays either way, it was not that busy at our time of travel . The restraunt food was nice but a bit more choice would have been nice but not a major negative. I used the euro tunnel alot while travelling but have to say i enjoyed getting out of the car going for a walk around the ship also having something to eat and a coffee was a nice break aswell. Really enjoyed the trip away. Thank you

    I cannot praise the crew highly enough. The sea was rough due to Storms Eunice and Franklin. We were kept informed of the delays getting into Dover. Amazing skill entering the port. Would definitely travel this way again. Thanks for the meal BTW.

  • "Lovely way of travelling to Europe "

    Overall we had a lovely family experience. It was good to take a break from driving and let the kids run and enjoy the ferry. Nice to have a meal included and overall it felt well serviced, efficient and very friendly. On the way back we got held up so took much longer than expected (bad weather conditions and a 3 hour delay). We were offered another free meal and drinks which was very decent. My one comment is that with the massive delay, there could have been more updates, as it wasn’t clear why we were held up and for how long.
