Step onboard

Step onboard and your holiday begins. Enjoy some retail therapy in our Sea Shop, visit the play area with the kids or enjoy a bite to eat in one of our onboard eateries. Whether it’s a filling meal in our 7 Seas restaurant, some international fare in the Explorer’s Kitchen or a coffee and a cake in the Lighthouse Café, sit back, enjoy some refreshments and arrive relaxed and ready to explore Europe.

For an even more relaxing crossing onboard our Dover – France route, why not upgrade to the Premium Lounge and enjoy complimentary refreshments in a laid back environment.


Motorhome travel

France is ideal for motorhomes, with an abundance of excellent campsites to park up and use as a base to explore the surrounding areas. Whether you explore the historic Normandy coast, head west to Brittany or venture south into the beautiful gallic countryside and the French riviera, there’s plenty to discover in France. If you’re heading to Holland why not drive by the beautiful flower fields or stop near Amsterdam to visit the Christmas markets? With great road links to wider Europe, it’s easy to get to Germany and Belgium. Visit the wine villages on the banks of the Rhine, sample some Belgian chocolate in Bruges and drive by the captivating castles of Germany. Travelling in your motorhome gives you the freedom to explore Europe at your leisure.
