  • "Pleasant & Efficient Journey"

    Living in Sussex, Newhaven for us is convenient. We find the service by DFDS efficient and comfortable. Particularly, the wide car-deck aisles prevent damgae to cars, c.f. the Dover ferries.

  • "Journeys with D F D S"

    Our journey from Newhaven to Dieppe (return) was one of the best ferry journeys that i have taken. The organisation by the loading crew and the ships company was absolutely excellent.The cleanliness of the ship and the standard of the food was superb and the friendliness of all the staff was a credit to the company. This includes both ships on our journey out and our return.

  • "Newhaven to Dieppe"

    I travelled to Dieppe from Newhaven, and I must say the loading in Newhaven was efficient,. however the disembarkation was painfully slow, whereas in Dieppe it was speedy both ways. As for the ships , they were very good. Dieppe port was very clean , where as Newhaven is an embarrassing. It is very old and derelict looking. Needs money spent on it. Not a good advert for people arriving in this country for the first time.

  • "A pretty good option."

    Having not caught a ferry for years I was looking forward to this little trip to and from Dieppe as my two young children had never been on a ship before and the whole experience was a good one. The process of booking was easy and reasonable, the trip was enjoyable and hassle-free and all the people responsible for it including the ferry staff and security at either end were friendly. My only gripe would be that, having got to the port the full 90 minutes ahead of sailing time as requested, there was no advantage to doing so in terms of the order of disembarkation. On the way back in particular we were early arriving in Dieppe and yet managed to be one of the last cars to get away from Newhaven. More effort on this front and I would definitely become a regular ferry-goer.

  • "Enjoyable Crossing"

    Very good crossing. Ship very comfortable, clean and staff friendly. We have done this crossing quite a few times now with DFDSand have alway experienced a pleasant and efficient journey. There are never any rowdy groups which means you can get a few hours sleep. We will continue to use and reccomend.

  • "Relaxing Crossing"

    Enjoyable journey from Dieppe to Newhaven 4 hours to relax. Meal was good, although it could have been a little hotter. Being able to sit outside on the deck a bonus. Very relaxing crossing and very reasonably priced. Always departs on time with efficient loading and unloading of vehicles. Would certainly use this route again.

    Excellent trip across the channel. Only gripe was the volume of the children’s tv, it seemed come through all of the speakers around that deck. Every member of staff were very friendly indeed.

  • "First trip as a foot passenger to Dieppe"

    I travelled with my mother, and we had a great trip no doubt helped by the fantastic weather. We both live very close to the ferry terminal with my mum in Seaford and myself in Newhaven both in positions to watch the ships go past each day. I felt the check in information was a little misleading as it said ‘latest check in’ 90 mins before sailing. Making me believe that check in would shut 90 mins before departure but in fact the check in desk only came alive a couple of hours before. I know as I arrived to a darkened unmanned terminal. It was great to be able to travel luggage free. Especially as travelling with my elderly mother I would have had to manoeuvre her case alongside mine wherever we went onboard. But what a shame the crew can’t organise it for the luggage to be off either before or with the foot passengers. Waiting 20+ mins in Dieppe and 40min in Newhaven was really frustrating. Having a Taxi organised seemed like a good idea arriving back but it could have got expensive. All the staff we met and spoke to both sides of the channel and onboard were curtious and kind.

    Apart from the gents toilets on side of one deck being locked and unavailable for use on the return trip I wouldn't criticise this service at all. I shall be happy to use this service again. I didn't use the catering but it all looked fine but the main thing was we were comfortable and on time.

  • "Good trip"

    Check-in was simple, loading efficient and the ferry was punctual. The staff were helpful although the chef was extremely vocal with his colleagues! Exchange rate was shocking which made the food expensive but the food was enjoyable. I think it would be useful to label the Reception desk as Information desk or change the announcements to say that information is available at the Reception desk. Hand dryers in the toilets weren't very effective but the facilities were clean. The shop wasn't open for long enough and opening and closing times weren't announced On the whole the journey was fine; the vessel left and arrived on time which is always a must as far as I'm concerned

    We travelled on the 1am ferry Dieppe to Newhaven. More info re loading process would be good and dimming the lights in the reclining seat area would be welcome. Otherwise we like this crossing as it is convenient and less subject to hold-ups than any Docer/Calais crossing.
