So you know, the map above shows point-to-point lines which may cross land. Don't worry, your ferry will not sprout legs and run across dry land. Instead it's water all the way! Mapping is approximate, and the scheduled times are estimates. Your trip is subject to change as, occasionally, operators have to alter itineraries due to bad weather or unforeseen events.

The Price


On Sunday 11th February 2018, I found a starting price from £89 per person based on two sharing the cheapest cabin (usually this is an inside cabin).

Want to compare this short break to a hotel stay? A starting price of 'from £89 per person' equates to 'from £44.50 per person per night'.


Any extras?

This price usually includes nightly accommodation on the ferry, and coach transfers between the port and the destination city. Cabin upgrades, food and drink, as well as any activities you wish to enjoy during your time in the city are normally excluded.

I regularly check for price changes by hand, but as they can occur rapidly, please use the link below to get the latest prices.
