Onboard our ferries

The voyage from Dover to France may be short, just 100 minutes to Calais and 2 hours to Dunkirk, but there’s plenty to do onboard to ensure your crossing is just as fun as the rest of your break. Head to the 7 Seas restaurant to grab a bite to eat, or the Lighthouse Café if you fancy something a lighter bite. Our Duty Free Shop onboard stocks travel essentials, confectionery and more. Plus, our brand new Duty Free Shops at Calais and Dunkirk ports are ideal for some retail therapy, with savings of up to 50% on premium products. There is also play area for children.

The ferries on our Newcastle-Amsterdam overnight ferry route are packed full of modern facilities. Head to one of the bars to sample a range of drinks while enjoying live music and entertainment. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to food too, with our buffet restaurant, Explorer’s Kitchen or our à la carte option, North Sea Bistro. If you’re travelling with children, they’ll love our play areas, cinema and shops. Once you’ve enjoyed yourself, you can retire to your cabin, with a range available.
