Crossing from Calais to Dover by ferry
nov. 2021 • Alene
Calais Port

Welcome to the new Calais Port! Millions of € has been invested to create compete new port! Sounds amazing!

Don’t kid yourself!

Upon arrival you are greeted with brand new booths lined up! There must be over 100 yet only a quarter are manned.

They seemed to have changed the system round now as you are now checked-in by your ferry operator before French frontier contrails which are generally no existent!

The you clear UK Border Force which is pretty straight forward!

Then you have to sit & wait! Now it’s all new! In fact it’s that new it’s not finished! Nowhere to get a coffee, no information boards, nowhere to get a bite to eat or catch up on some work while you wait for a hours to catch the slowest form of transport known to man in the modern day!

Also don’t forget Dover is also much smaller, dirty and the ferry docking births are well known to break down as they are all very old!

Travelling on the sea should be a pleasant experience and a relaxing break from driving!

My humble opinion is hop on the Euro Tunnel! Far quicker and more efficient! Don’t use the toilet on the actual train through! They are disgusting!

I think I’ll get the tunnel next time…

Arrived an hour and a half before our ferry crossing to find massive queues caused due to UK Border Control. French passport control was easy and took minutes. Unfortunately, the UK control decided they wanted to take their time. Thanks for that.
Missed the ferry due to this and then had to hang around in Calais port for over an hour. Thankfully it wasn’t any longer as I was in serious danger of a breakdown resulting in me using my own shoe as a blunt weapon to end the tarmac nightmare of the Port of Calais.
Thought I’d get a coffee - it’s late, so headed for a vending machine. Out of order. Walked aimlessly about looking for something else and eventually stumbled across another delightfully quaint concrete shack - complete with coffee machines! Checked the first one; out of coffee. Good start. Checked the second - there’s coffee! Paid, took my money and refused to give me a coffee. At this point I returned to my car to weep uncontrollably as I hunted for moisture that had cling to the underside of my vehicle. There wasn’t much, but I survived with only minor dehydration and a violent headache from the particularly garish screens telling me to apply my handbrake, wear a mask and other information it probably shouldn’t be deemed necessary to tell people, but they’re dealing with the general public, so I get it.

All in all, the Port of Calais - whilst functional - could really use some entertainment. Maybe a juggler to make you feel better about the UK Border Control really screwing up your journey or even just a basic floral display. Anything to take your mind away from the crushing despair of a longer than necessary wait at this landscape of car parks, steel and distress.

Disappointed for disabled and kids

Just been through today ..my experience was mixed. The French border control was backed up because of the British UK border control. French seen to check quickly whereas I am.not sure why it takes British border control so long. They were only checking passports it was role of dfds to check covid requirements Long queues . When I asked French passport control if toilets were open that had a sign. I was told they weren't. So by this point I was really needing them. Got pass French border control into long queue for British. I went to go and ask one chap outside British border control office and one chap.in kiosk. Both said no...one went on to say that most people probably in same situation and I couldn't cross untill our car went through. We waited in that queue for 30 to 40 mins Luckily due to the kindness of one couple in front of queue we went through to dfds kiosk where more kindness from lady that worked there who showed me where I could go to the toilet. Just curious at what a child or person with physical disabilities would do in same situation. It's 2021 France and UK border control....please please find it in your hearts to.put a toilet in so those in need don't have more stress added to them.

catastrophic service today from the port of Calais.

We had a reservation for 5.30pm and arrived over an hour and a half before departure at 4.00 pm.

And yet at 5:10 pm for a 5:30pm departure as we passed the final check, we were told the ferry had left in front of us.

The queues were horrible at french customs to go out with only two people at the desks.

The result was that we missed our ferry and despite the port having no facilities, we had to wait until 10pm for the next ferry.

It's just not good enough. Irish ferries would not refund, provide a credit note or place us on another carrier. Their next ferry wasn't until 22.00 hours, which means we will have been travelling for almost 24 hours with children.

moreover, you are then trapped in the ferry port for almost six hours. and there is nothing but a toilet and a vending machine. Not even water.

It's not comfortable, there's a real risk of children playing outside and getting run over or covid. There are vans and lorries everywhere.

Calais port
feb. 2020
We hold frequent traveller tickets on the tunnel and have been for 15 years. Last weekend due to a family emergency we needed a trip back to the UK only to find that due to the end of half-term holiday plus that it was the weekend; the tunnel was fully booked. So we were glad to grab a P&O ferry booking, as the weather conditions were bad we expected delays, so we weren't really upset to be proved correct. Having said that we found the facilities at the port absolutely disgusting, only coffee machines and snack machines, come on it's 2020 surely the authorities could do better than this, they might even make a profit. To add to this the lack of information is appalling.

A dump
feb. 2020
Port of Calais passenger terminal is a god forsaken dump. Just vending machines and a toilet. No water fountain. Dover is so much better. Never again.

Awful experience, would absolutely recommend to avoid this port.

Arrived at Calais at 5pm, sat in a stand still queue for over 2 hours, stewards on the port had no idea what was going on. No organisation whatsoever, complete chaos!

I walked out to the ferry port to check it out for our journey to UK. BIG MISTAKE!

It is way farther than it looks on the maps they give out at the Information Centre. It is pretty unpleasant, too. Concrete. Heavy duty fences reaching a long eway above head height. Lot od ups and downs, to through, and from overhead walkways. Industrial noises. Diesel fumes from waiting vehicles. Hardly any shade.

I wouldn't even say the view of the working port was great. It looked better from our hotel window.

The whole place is set up for two things: getting trucks and cars through and onto car ferries as quickly as possible, and for keeping migrants/asylum seekers out. The vehicles emerge from an autoroute tunnel almost straight onto the deck of the ferry. No hassle, no inconvenience (this was pre-BREXIT). The fortifications are very very, effective. Not a migrant in sight - apparently life has been made so difficult for them here that they have moved further along the coast. The fortifications also make a major contribution to the ugliness and general inhumanity of the port infrastructure.

Next day, we took a cab to get to the ferry terminal.
