  • "Dover Dunkirk crossing Oct 2022"

    Early crossing at 4 am was on time, very few people and comfortable. A bit expensive.

  • "Recent ferry crossing"

    We had a positive experience with DFDS. The check in staff in the UK were very friendly and attentive. The outbound ship was quiet and disembarking was efficient. It was great to be able to return on an earlier crossing than we had boked too.

  • "Stress-free travelling "

    We travelled from Dover to Dunkirk, and the ferry journey was an enjoyable break in our journey where we could relax and enjoy some family time. The ferry was recently refurbished with thoughtful design so the lounge and restaurant were comfortable, calm and stylish. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

  • "Dunquerk Dover Dunquerk"

    DFDS has a very flexible approach to passenger arrivals. I was too late arriving for both journies because I miscalculated the time required to fight my way through roadworks on both sides of the Channel.This flexibility avoids the necessity for drivers to undertake a dangerous driving style in order to catch the ferry. I live in Germany and using the Dunquerk crossing instead of Calais saves me almost 100Km

    I prefer the ferry over the train as I can walk, eat and drink and also shop tax-free 😆. Makes a big difference to be able to walk around after a long drive.

    The voyages outward and return was plain sailing, quiet and not too busy.  Sailing was delayed however the length of time of 2 hours was accurate.  I would definitely use dfds again.

  • "Crew is 5* but T&C was incorrect about pets"

    Booked the ferry as I wanted to take my dogs with me. used to travel with it pre-pandemic and saw several dogs on board. During the booking process NOWHERE in the T&C was it mentioned that the dogs cannot come up to board any more. And they needed to stay down in the stinky, extremely loud cargo space. Overall they were trautamatised, so was I. The crew took me down half way through and couldnt have been more apologetic, they were absolutely amazing. BUT the management should provide an ACCURATE T&C. Obviously I will not use the ferry any more as I will not depart from my dogs. that was cruel!
