The vessel was launched in 2006, so enjoys the latest in facilities and technology to ensure an enjoyable crossing. This superb new ship is capable of speeds of up to 22 knots (about 25 mph). With ultra-modern stabilizers you can be sure of a comfortable crossing whatever the weather conditions.

LD Lines Portsmouth to Le Havre
Transmanche Ferries Newhaven to Dieppe
TransEuropa Ferries Ramsgate Ostend

The ferry departs from Newhaven at 0930 and 2230 with a return departure from Dieppe at 0500 and 1800. Check in is no later than 45 minutes before departure.

There's plenty to make the 4 hour trip seem more like a cruise than a ferry crossing, including a magnificent panoramic lounge, as well as the elegant surroundings of the bar and restaurant. Make sure you find time on the trip for some shopping in the boutique while you leave the children in the children’s play-areas.

The ship sails from Dover's Eastern Docks, right next to the end of the A2 and A20, so easy to find and well signposted. If you already have tickets you just follow the signs to the LD Lines' check-in kiosks. Tickets on arrival can be purchased in the ticket office on the right as you enter the port area. Dover is about an hour's drive down the M20/A20 from its junction with the M25.

Dieppe is a very pleasant seaside town, with an elegant promenade and a bustling town centre presided over by the Chateau perched on the hillside. The restaurants are well-known for the quality of their seafood, and cater for all budgets. It's an easy drive south to join up with the Fench autoroute network near Rouen, with Paris not much more than 2 hours away, and dual carriageways and motorways waiting to take you throughout France and beyond.
