Our routes from Dover to France offer the quickest way to get you into Europe. Sail to Dunkirk in 2 hours and Calais in just 90 minutes. With up to 54 daily sailings, there will always be a crossing time to suit you.
Once you’re onboard the time will fly. Between dining at our 7 Seas restaurant with panoramic ocean views, hitting up our shop for a deal, or heading straight to the Pirates Island play area, you’ll be in France before you know it. You could even head to our Premium Lounge for only £12pp for a more luxurious experience, where you’ll be met with prosecco, complimentary pastries, hot and cold drinks as well as TVs and wonderful sea views.
For a gateway east, Dunkirk is your port, be in Lille in under an hour, head straight into Belgium, Luxembourg or onward to Germany.
If you want to stay Gallic, take the Calais route. Take a trip along the Opal coast, drive down to the historical beaches of Normandy, or have a rural retreat in the Loire valley. For a city break, visit Paris.
Amsterdam is your route into northern Europe. The city itself is something to see so stick around to take in a few of the sights. If you want to go further into Europe then you’re only a pit stop from the beautiful cities of Germany and Belgium. Head deeper into Bavarian Germany and even Austria for beautiful rolling hills, snow-topped peaks and other-worldly hamlets seen in The Sound of Music and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
