Booking your crossing and taking your ferry

Newhaven port, near Brighton, is a very convenient location as it is very close to London and easily reachable. When you book, your booking confirmation will have the address of the port.

When should I arrive and check in?

Check in starts one and half hours before your sailing. If you arrive less than 45 minutes before your sailing, you may not be allowed entry. In these circumstances, you may be able to travel on another sailing and there may be a charge in addition to a potential difference in fare.

You'll just need your booking reference and passport or other valid travel ID to check in. You won't have to print off a ticket before you board.

On board your ferry to Dieppe

There are three daily sailings in both directions from 1 May to 30 September and two daily sailings at other times of the year. The crossing is only four hours but there are wealth of facilities and features on board to keep you entertained during your crossing.

What advantage of this route over others is that all passengers automatically have access to reclining lounge seats during the crossing for no extra charge. Of course, a variety of cabins are also available and you can see details of these when you make your booking.

Onboard facilities include a restaurant, a shop, and a bar with floor to ceiling windows offering stunning views across the ocean. If travelling with kids, you'll find a play area to keep them entertained during the crossing.

    Foot passenger travel
    • My daughter and I had a fairly comfortable journey on the way there, but on the way back, we had a cabin next to a noisy family (the walls are thin). The boat was by no means full and I felt that we were put there as it would have been easier for the staff to clean quickly. Also, both ways, our luggage was loaded before the cars and the trucks which meant that we had to wait till the vehicles had left the boat. This is not acceptable and needs to be given more thought. I will have to consider taking a smaller suitcase next time.

    Excellent travel experience
    • All staff were very helpful and polite. The choice of hot and cold food was excellent and very competitively priced.

    First time cabin use
    • The ship has had a bit of a refurb which is an improvement. The cabin on the return journey was comfortable, but spoilt by the incessant talking by the adjacent passengers.

    • I don't think any ferry travel is great. It seems to take for ever to get on and off the ship. Facilities are OK, the catering is not the best and the food is not piping hot but acceptable. I think it's all OK but not sparkling.
