Kelly Brook opens DFDS Seaways and LD Lines Dover-Calais ferry route 

Date published: 17 February 2012.

Model Kelly Brook today launched the inaugural sailing of a new ferry route between Dover to Calais run by DFDS Seaways and LD Lines.

Dressed in a sailor’s outfit, Kelly was joined by Carsten Jensen, senior vice-president, DFDS Seaways and Christophe Santoni, managing director, LD Lines to cut the ribbon, cementing the opening of the new route.

Champagne corks were popped dockside before the Norman Spirit set sail. 

Accompanying the vessel as it departed was a Port of Dover tug, firing its water cannon and sounding its horn.

The new route will operate up to five times a day, with the first sailings aboard the Norman Spirit. A second ship and additional sailings will be added to the schedule at a later date.
