Relaxing Onboard - Dover to Dunkirk

Ferry travel is a comfortable and relaxing way to travel compared to flying. No long queues, no fastening your seatbelts and plenty of space to relax. Both routes have quiet areas where you can enjoy the short journey taking in the sea views or for a more luxurious experience, why not upgrade to the Premium Lounge?
