    no title. just a few comments
    • Excellent value for money. Hassle free ticket purchase and check in. Extremely polite and friendly staff. The premium lounge is better now than it has been for several years. I never travel cross-channel with anyone else.

    Easy crossing
    • Very few cars and passengers onboard due to action by French customs resulting in a very quiet and relaxing crossing. Efficient operation and comfortable vessel.
