CHECK-IN & LUGGAGE
What are the check-in times at the different ports of DFDS? And how much luggage can you take on board? Read all about luggage on board and check-in times here .
Did you take a lot of luggage or have you shopped a lot in England? At DFDS we have a standard maximum of 50 kg of luggage per passenger. The luggage must be taken by yourself from and on board. Please note that there are no luggage carts.
If you have baggage that may cause inconvenience to your fellow passengers or crew, or baggage that may endanger the safety or security of the ship, you may not take these on board. For security reasons, our security staff has the freedom to search you or your luggage at any time.
Tip: You spend the night on board both on the outward and return journeys. Pack a separate bag with necessary items so that you do not have to take your entire suitcase out of the car to the cabin.
Rules have to be complied with for gas bottles and petroleum. For gas bottles, a maximum of 47 kg applies (these may not be connected and must be switched off). It is not possible to take petroleum as a passenger. This is possible via freight
