Newhaven Dieppe Ferry We took a trip to Europe via a DFDS Ferry with our small campervan. I was very impressed with the crossing and the price. For just under £100.00 each way we secured a Crossing and a 4-week return date. We sailed off at 10.30 a.m., you have to be at the port 90 minutes before departure. Everything went well, we boarded easily and fast. We had a nice day for the crossing, so spent most of our time on the upper deck relaxing for 4 hours. Our exit from the boat was fast too, I overheard someone saying let’s get ready for the 2-hour departure and customs. We managed it within 15 minutes of arrival, off the boat, passports checked and off on our journey and 1st French stop at a campsite in Fécamp.
