  • "LD Lines / DFDS Portsmouth to Le Havre"

    Excellent value for money ferry operator and crossing. Screaming child for 4 hours of 5 hour crossing slightly irritating. All the crew were as friendly and helpful as usual. Tasty food and bar snacks. Immaculately clean ship including the toilets. The shop was well stocked for holiday gift purchases. Short organised boarding and disembarking of vehicles as usual. It is such a shame that DFDS have now ceased this route leaving no competition.

    It was not difficult to find the ferry port at Le Havre and the staff were very good! I was pleased to get a return crossing that was a very competative price,especially sailing just before Christmas and returning for the new year.

  • "Thank you"

    I thank DFDS directferries as i have recieved my lost passport in the post. I dropped it on board and it was found the same day when i contacted the ferry. The only request i have is if all lights could be turned out during the night crossing in the lounges with reclining seats.

  • "5 day trip"

    Boat was quiet but not over warm. Loading in UK seemed to take ages whereas in France we were whisked straight on, having arrived 60 minutes before sailing at each port. Unloading seemed lengthy, due to much manoeuvring of trucks, 30 minutes plus in France. Overall 7/10 Will travel with Direct Ferries again.

  • "Ferry booking"

    From arriving on-board we were greeted like old friends by the deck handlers, pursers office staff, Bar staff and restaurant crew. Our cabin was very clean and comfy, and after a drink in the bar area as we left the harbour was welcoming. Only thing that I would like different would be Hot food to be hot, not luke warm that needs microwaving. We returned on the same vessel and as above were made to feel very welcome, Highly recommended and will be returning with the same company.

  • "A far better alternative."

    We took our car over to France using the Portsmouth to Le Havre crossing. As there were very few passengers on board, we were informed that they would stop one of the engines. This made us one hour late in arriving in Le Harve. The food was also of pretty poor quality. Six weeks later, for our return crossing I decided to travel with DFDS. This was a much better appointed ship with better food and service. It was on time and was even cheaper that the outward carrier. Many thanks, DFDS.

  • "Portsmouth - Le Havre"

    Check-in, loading and disembarking all very efficient. Facilities on board more than adequate. Only problem was attempting to sleep in the 'reclining' seat. As a solo traveller the cost of a cabin was prohibitive.

  • "Satisfied"

    I used the ferry last week and found most things to be satisfactory. The bed in the cabin was comfortable enough, although I could have done with a thicker pillow, and the blanket wasn't sufficient for my travelling companion who needed to wear her fleece in bed. I was delighted to get on and off the ferry very quickly as frequently even though I invariably arrive early, I am one of the last off the boat.( perhaps because usually I travel in a higher vehicle) I didn't use the restaurant, but the food looked appetizing. The ferry I think was the Seven Sisters, not the Norman Voyager. I find LD Lines to be much better value for money than Brittany Ferries, and it will be a pity that this route may close.

  • "A good but rough Crossing"

    We found the staff and the facilities aboard the seven sisters to be very good. As we were out off season I can only assume there was less passengers which gave us a choice of seating and the amenaties. The food was of a high standard and was very welcome after a several hour drive to the dock. The only draw back was the weather going to France it was quite choppy which we were warned about its a shame the DFS ferries cant control the waves and it would have been perfect.

    We had a very good, comfortable journey. Embarking with the car was accomplished efficiently and quickly; the self-service restaurant opened before we sailed and we enjoyed our meal. Our cabin was basic, but clean and perfectly adequate. We sailed and arrived on time. We think the crossing was very good value for money.

    Lovely smooth crossing (both directions) Staff were very helpful and friendly. Food in the restaurant was very nice and a welcome start to a long journey after disembarkation. Facilities were good although toilets were a bit smelly and the air conditioning in the seating salon seemed not to be on making it very warm on the return journey. Overall an enjoyable experience, would travel this route again.

    My trip to Le Havre was a late night trip, we left Portsmouth on time and was soon out off the harbour and on my way. It was just a couple of days after the last of the hurricane had relented so I was a bit uneasy about the crossing, but all was well and I arrived on time. thank you D Kendall G/Facilities: Only one urinal in service in the toilet.

  • "Affordable Crossings"

    My trip with DFDS was as good as Brittany Ferries and a lot cheaper.Being a smaller vessel the scale of the facilities was smaller but this was made up for by the pleasant and helpfull staff. My return journey was delayed by bad weather for which DFDS cannot be held resposible. My only critisism of the service was the lack of refreshment facilities at Le Harvre terminal with no refreshments being available having traveled for 3 hrs to get there. It will be a pitty to see the service stopped in the near future leaving most customers at the mercy of one operator. A value for money service that will be missed
