Enjoy a meal onboard
With so much to do onboard, your journey will fly by! Head to our onboard shop and pick up anything you might have forgotten, plus maybe a few treats, too. If you’re bringing little ones, there’s out soft play area to keep them entertained.
Our onboard self-service restaurant, Maupassant, provides meals for any time of day, whether that’s a filling hot breakfast, tasty lunch or evening meal. With vegetarian options, too, we ensure everyone is catered for on our ferries. If you’re not too hungry, just opt for a snack or head to the Beachy Head bar for a sandwich or sweet treat paired with stunning sea views, and perhaps a tipple to wash it all down.
There’s a quiet lounge area with comfortable reclining chairs if you’d like to get some rest. However, for a little more privacy, book an en suite cabin for a small supplement and make sure you’re completely refreshed when you reach France.
Dieppe is ideal if you’re looking to explore all the France has to offer. Northern France, and Normandy in particular, are at your fingertips. Visit the extraordinary rock formations at Etretat Beach, drive through the stunning countryside, stopping for picnics at your leisure. You could venture to the chic capital or even further south to Lyon, Bordeaux or the Riviera.
We have proudly partnered with Nectar to provide even more value to you, our customer.
