DFDS welcomes new ferry to the Channel

DFDS welcomes its newest ferry, Côte d’Opale, to the Dover-Calais route today on 4 August when it makes its maiden voyage to Dover.

DJI 0151edited


The Côte d’Opale can carry 3,100 lane metres of freight, making it the longest ferry on the Channel, and has space for up to 1,000 passengers and crew. It replaces Calais Seaways.
The new ferry offers the largest duty-free shopping experience on any cross-Channel ferry. The shop stretches across 1,100 square metres. It features separate ‘wings’ for each product category on offer, including perfume and cosmetics, wine and spirits, and electronics. The return of duty-free means that passengers will be able to make huge savings on premium products sold in the onboard shop.

In addition, the ferry has a Premium Lounge, which offers an exclusive, laid-back space for passengers to enjoy a peaceful crossing, and three dining areas. The 7 Seas restaurant and Lighthouse Café are for leisure travellers. Commercial drivers have their own dedicated area in the Road Kings lounge and restaurant, with showers and rest areas specially designed for drivers.
Côte d’Opale will be highly efficient and environmentally friendly with an expected reduction in fuel consumption of around 25 per cent compared to the current fleet. With two engines instead of four, she will offer improvements in fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions and give a service speed of 20-22 knots.

Peder Gellert, EVP & Head of DFDS’ Ferry Division, says: “As we return to a new and changed world, we are seeing a gradual return of normality within our ferry business – and we welcome Côte D’Opale to it. Her arrival is a signal. A signal that people can start to think about moving again. Moving is vital to a ferry and logistics company like DFDS. We do so, with people and planet in mind. With more capacity, greater operational efficiency, and a dedicated crew, we will ensure safe travel for passengers, reliable delivery of goods and a reduced impact to the environment.”
Filip Hermann, Vice President and Head of BU Channel for DFDS, said: “The outbound ferry journey sets the scene for a traveller’s whole holiday experience. Customers today have higher expectations and the Côte d’Opale will exceed anything they have experienced before on this route. With excellent passenger and driver facilities, improved environmental impact and increased capacity, we are excited to welcome Côte d’Opale to Dover to launch a new era of cross channel ferry travel.”

Côte d’Opale was ordered by DFDS in April 2018 (on a charter from Stena RoRo) and has been built at the CMI Jinling Weihei shipyard in China. DFDS will operate the ship for an initial ten years with an option to buy it after that. It has the capacity to handle growth in both freight and leisure customers post-Brexit and Covid-19.

Here is an article with many pictures from inside from the new E-Flexer SALAMANCA.

For people who has travelled on "really" Brittany Ferries before it is disappointing. For normal passengers are only 2 restaurants and 1 bar as public areas. No cinema, no pool, no sauna, no day-lounge with comfortable seats, no stage, no music, no open-deck / wintergarden-restaurant as on other Brittany-Ferries, nothing special, no highlight... . The front-lounge is closed in the night and reserved only for Commodore-class cabin-people what means to book a normal 3-star-hotelroom for a galactic price... .
The other "normal" cabins are still similar like cabins in the 80ies - with very small windows, very small and with bunk-beds. If we think about that a new ferry is planned for the next ca. 30 years - is this the kind of the travel now and in 2030/2040/2050 ? In cabins from the 80ies ? Especially here for the very long routes to Spain with more than 24 hours onboard i hope that Brittany sees the E-Flexers only as "intermediate emergency solution for the next couple of years" and will replace these E-Flexer after the chartered time (10 years) with "really" new Brittany Ferries who normally offers more comfort and public space again - and also faster again - already now many negative reports of disappointed british people in the internet because the traveltime is much longer as before with the faster CAP FINISTERE.
Now to Spain the time onboard is 2 nights and 1 day (f.ex. 21:30 - 8:00) - former it was less then or ca. 24 hours !
Especially for car-holiday-families it is big difference to loose 2 x much more holiday-time now onboard... . And onboard "normal" people only can sleep 2 x ca. 23:00 - 7:00 in the cabin and then sit all the day ca. 7:30 - 22:30 on a restaurant-chair... :( .

Normally i think always that BRITTANY is one of the best ferry-companies but with these 3 "spanish" very basic E-Flexer-RoPax SANTONA, GALICIA and SALAMANCA the passengers has brandnew ships - but much slower than before and with much less comfort as onboard of the other ferries of the Brittany-fleet or former older ferries on the route like f.ex. the Ex-Viking-Lines OLYMPIA (her traveltime was 28 hours in the 90ies).

The new extended E-Flexer, which will be go on the Gdynia-Karlskrona route in July, will be called Stena Estelle. Stena has not officially announced this name of the ferry yet, but the marinetraffic website already gives this name to the ferry.
