C Class

Operated by DFDS Seaways on the Calais Dover route

The DFDS Seaways ferries can carry in excess of 1900 passengers, with ample space for passenger and freight vehicles. The state of the art vessels include a choice of bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as a shop for any last minute purchases or souvenir buying. Travellers of all ages will find plenty to keep them occupied whilst on board, with a designated kids area, video games section and plenty of areas to relax and take in the sea vistas.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Premium Lounge seating provides those seeking a more luxurious journey with the ideal setting. As well as private area seating you are treated to complimentary food and drinks, newspapers and have the option to kick back and watch some TV. From your comfortable chair you can enjoy beautiful sea views.

Onboard Food and Drink

On board, you will find a self-service restaurant serving a range of delicious hot and cold dishes, freshly cooked throughout the day. Vegetarian alternatives and children's options are also available. If you would prefer something lighter, there are also plenty of cafes and bars where you can relax and admire the superb sea views.

Onboard Shopping

You don’t have to just sit around whilst making your crossing, with DFDS you can indulge in some retail therapy and maybe treat yourself to a little something while on the move. The Sea Shop includes great deals on fragrances, skincare and cosmetics, as well as being stocked up on gifts, souvenirs, magazines, books and sweets. The kids can also enjoy the range of goods with plenty to choose from the toys and games selection. Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten to pack some of your much needed holiday essentials. You can find everything from phrase books, maps and guides to toiletries and adaptors.

Travelling with Children

Keeping the little ones can prove to be one of the greatest challenges when travelling abroad but this is made a lot easier with a dedicated soft play area. Here they can safely run around, burn some energy and enjoy the journey. Those youngsters who have outgrown the play area can pass the time in the arcade area, where they will find a number of video and racing games.

Accessibility

The C Class vessels all have lift access parking, passenger lifts so you can move freely between the decks and wheelchair accessible public toilet facilities.

Please Note: Whilst we have taken great care in making our C Class guide as accurate as possible, onboard facilities, services and entertainment may vary depending on the date and time of year that you travel, facilities mentioned may change without notification and ferry companies reserve the right to operate vessels other than those mentioned at time of booking without prior notification.

  • "Review 220926"

    Staff really friendly and helpful, both generally and in the shop. Self service restaurant could improve. No list of menu or prices before reaching the counter, food served was almost cold. It was quite cold once one had waited at the till. Microwave to warm it up again had no instructions for those who were unfamiliar with it.

  • "Great boat and service"

    Have discovered DFDS recently and have to say it is the best ferry company I have crossed the English Channel with so far. Boat was a year old and new, staff well trained and friendly (although not the best English :)), food and beverages were great. Only downside was not much entertainement.

  • "Refreshingly good service"

    I had to change my travel plans by a day, arriving 3 minutes before the close of check-in for a service that i did not have a ticket for. A super friendly check-in clerk took a small extra charge and i was accommodated. Once on board, the attendant in the Lounge was exceptionally helpful. Altogether a relly good service. Thank you DFDS.
