Côte D’Opale

See how our new ship, the Côte D’Opale, is shaping up!

This year we will welcome the Côte D’Opale into the Channel family and with just a few months to go until her maiden voyage, she is coming along nicely.

February Update: Dining Onboard

As Chinese New Year fell on our production yard in Weihai, those working on the Côte d'Opale got a well-deserved rest. Their hard work means the ship is almost 90% complete.

As one of the largest ships on the channel, the Côte d'Opale is well equipped for post-covid travel.

Passengers will receive an inclusive meal on every crossing in restaurants set up for socially distanced dining. For light bites, the Lighthouse Café will offer sandwiches, bean-to-cup coffee and too good to resist cakes! French dishes such as Magret de Canard and Tartiflette will be available in our 7 Seas restaurant, as well as classic options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For an exclusive experience, the Premium Lounge is a relaxing space with complimentary refreshments, prosecco and stunning sea views.

Our Road Kings Lounge will give drivers a filling meal and a place to rest. Premium facilities also include hot showers and a quiet lounge for drivers to sleep while they sail.

With sea-views, spacious seating and delicious dishes, you’ll be wanting to travel on the Côte d'Opale again!

January Update: Shopping at Sea

Building started in May 2019 and there is just 15% of the build left until she is ready! Three hundred people are working on the ship to prepare her for the sea trials in May, after which the Côte D’Opale will be ready to welcome you onboard. Her 214 metres length and the capacity for 1000 passengers, will make her our longest ferry on the Channel.

The Côte D’Opale will have the largest retail space of our channel ships stretching 1,100 square metres in an open plan concept. A large atrium with a skylight will be the centrepiece of the retail experience onboard. There will be separate ‘wings’ for each product category including perfume & cosmetics, wine & spirits and technology. Duty Free will add more excitement, with huge savings on premium products available onboard.

With shopping and dining experiences to rival large shopping centres or airports, the ship will offer more space, more choice, and a unique travel experience for our valued customers.

We moeten nog even wachten op de Côte D’Opale maar hier is alvast een kort overzicht hoe het nieuwe schip zich verhoudt tot de geliefde Calais Seaways die ze zal vervangen.

Calais Seaways, gebouwd in 1991, is een bekend schip op de Kanaalroutes. Helaas bereikt de Calais Seaways het einde van haar leven en wordt ze vervangen door een nieuw schip.

De Côte D’Opale is momenteel in aanbouw en is voor 75% voltooid. Er zullen geen hutten zijn en dat betekent dat er meer ruimte is voor onze passagiers. Aan boord vind je onze gloednieuwe Duty Free shop, restaurants, Premium Lounge en Road Kings ruimte exclusief voor vrachtwagenchauffeurs.

De ferry zal ook milieuvriendelijker zijn, de dieselmotoren zullen minder brandstof verbruiken en het strakke ontwerp zal twee propellers aandrijven die het schip een snelheid van 20-22 knopen geeft.

We kijken ernaar uit je in de zomer van 2021 te verwelkomen!
