Family Travel onboard Dunkirk to Dover

When your kids have fun it makes your holiday so much better, and much more relaxing too! Whether you are wildlife spotting on deck or following Jack’s Treasure Hunt across the ship, there is plenty to keep families busy during our short sailings across the channel.

Due to COVID-19 safety measures, Pirates’ Island children’s play area and our arcade games area are currently closed. However, children can still follow Jack’s Treasure Hunt across the ship, helping our mascot gather clues to find his treasure! Find out more!
