DFDS has revealed the new features onboard Dunkerque Seaways, the first of three ships on the Dover to Dunkirk route to be refitted in an investment of £3.9 million (US$5.07 million) by the ferry operator.

Passengers onboard the ferry can now enjoy the new adults-only Relax Lounge, which is equipped with reclining chairs built into an airline style pod. Guests in the lounge also receive a complimentary Rituals Karma set, containing hand and body mist and hand lotion.

The ship’s Premium Lounge areas have also been refurbished with new furniture and a modern décor. Passengers can enjoy a complimentary glass of prosecco and refreshments in the lounge, which is open for 24 hours a day.

The refit has also introduced a new dining option onboard the ship, the Horizon restaurant. First launched on the ships on the Dover to Calais route, Horizon is a pizza, pasta and salad restaurant where guests place their orders and take buzzers to their tables, so they can be notified when their meals are ready for collection.

Among other improvements is be the installation of new bathroom facilities across the ship and TVs in the Lighthouse Café.

“This is a very exciting refit programme and continues on from last year’s successes with our Lighthouse Café, demonstrating our commitment to improving the passenger experience onboard our DFDS ferries,” said Steve Newbury, onboard commercial director for short routes and passenger at DFDS. “Many of the changes are in response to ideas and suggestions from our customers, so I am looking forward to the feedback from our passengers.”

After the refurbishment of Dunkerque Seaways, Delft Seaways will be refitted from 1 March, followed by Dover Seaways at the end of the same month.
