Although the Dover to Calais journey is short, you’ll still find plenty of entertainment to keep you busy for the duration of the 90 minute crossing when you step onboard to travel to France with us.

From grabbing a drink and bite to eat in one of our restaurants to simply finding somewhere cozy to sit and relax with a book, you will find that there are lots of things to do to keep you entertained during your journey.

If you’re travelling with your children in tow, you should have a look at what kids’ entertainment we have to offer on board for some family-friendly fun. And if you aren’t battling your kids on the video arcade machines, maybe you’d prefer to be child-free for an hour or so and try your luck on the fruit machines.

Perhaps you’d enjoy a bit of retail therapy in our World Duty Free shop? We offer some fantastic discounts on board compared to your usual high street prices, so if you’re looking to bag a bargain on some new sunglasses for your holiday or treat yourself to some new perfume, you’re in the right place.  

Weather permitting, you may want to take a stroll out on deck to get the very best views of the White Cliffs and a nice bit of sea air to refresh you before continuing on your journey once we arrive in France.

And if that’s not all, you can find out even more about things to do on board our Dover to Calais ships.
