    • One star for on board catering because I did not use it and the questionnaire would not accept a blank response. I can't understand why DFDS charges £35 for a return ticket yet over £60 for a single. You may not know it but I was born in Ireland and have sometimes been criticised for being bog Irish probably with cause but this pricing structure exceeds that description of DFDS pricing policy.
