Premium Relax and Pamper

Our beautifully refurbished Premium Lounges on Côte des Dunes and Côte des Flandres are normally £12pp but we’re so proud we want to show them off. That’s why we’re giving 15,000 of you free access on your next crossing.

Once you’ve washed down your complimentary glass of Italian prosecco, help yourself to our selection of tea, coffee and hot chocolate, as well as a number of chilled drinks. To give you the real French experience we offer French pastries, macaroons and petit-fours.

For entertainment we provide the day’s newspapers, TV and electric sockets to keep those phones and tablets fully charged for you. You’ll also find comfortable seating and wonderful sea views too. Please note, the Lounge is available for children aged over 8 only.

Ship refurb

More than a lick of paint…

We were once again incredibly proud to win the World’s Leading Ferry Operator in 2016 for the sixth year in a row. To make sure we win the title in 2017, we completely renovated our Côte des Dunes and Côte des Flandres ships in 2016. 

That took 84 days, 34,000 litres of paint and a lot of man power. It was all worth it to make sure your onboard experience is perfect.

With 30 daily sailings from times ranging 00:45 to 23:05, you’ll be able to find your perfect time to travel. It only takes 90 minutes, too. So you can start your holiday as fast as possible when you travel with DFDS.
