MyFerryLink are the newest Dover to Calaias channel Ferry operator. MyFerryLink are unique in that they are French owned (the only such ferry operator on the Calais to Dover route) and their crew all have a stake in the business. This gives MyFerryLink an edge against their route competitors as you get the chance to sample French Culture as soon as you get on board.
Their fleet of ferries are of the highest standards with bars, restaurants and shops for all tastes. MyFerryLink's gourmet food menu in particular is a treat with a fantastic range of food packed with flavour.
Begining operations in August 2012, MyFerryLink operate the Dover to Calais route and currently have two ships which are modern "super-ferries". These are aptly named after famous French painters who are all recognizsed for a trademark style of subtlety and finesse - a tone very much in keeping with the MyFerryLink ethos:
This super-ferry makes Dover to Calais crossings in just one and a half hours traveling at 25 knots. This gives you just enough time to enjoy a cup of real French coffee and a delicious plate of ‘steak frites’ in the gourmet brasserie.
The Rodin has won a string of awards for its emphasis on comfort and luxury travel. It was rightly credited with changing the face of cross channel ferry travel from what was a functional no frills service to an extension or indeed commencement of the whole holiday experience.

One of things that really impressed me about MyFerryLink was the quality of the actual ferries. Anybody who has a childhood recollection of doing the obligatory family holiday or day trip to France with their school will remember the ferry as a foreboding steel leviathan, all peeling paint and awful plastic seating as it violently belched steam and lurched across the channel with kids lined up vomiting over either side. Anybody brave enough to risk the food would be treated to something akin to the worst hospital food imaginable with the crossing itself a test of endurance designed to see how badly you really wanted that holiday!
Thankfully the Ferry dark ages are now in the distant past with the emphasis now on the holiday starting the moment you board the ferry. MyFerryLink do this aspect really well and it helps that they’ve recently updated their fleet with two brand new liners which are very modern and fitted with all the latest features and facilities. In terms of style, comfort and exclusivity I can’t fault them and the service, friendliness of the staff and food in particular were spot on. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MyFerryLink and as they come in slightly cheaper than their nearest competitor there’s no reason not to use them if you’re looking for a Dover to Calais crossing.

Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have produced a new French wine called Miraval which is being marketed to all the super yachts that sail around the French Riviera. Now I know not all of us can afford the luxury of traveling on a super yacht, however if you are interested you can purchase a bottle of the new wine from the old port of Cannes at the 1862 Wines & Spirits shop. This retailer is the leading wine shop for super yachts travelling down the Riviera.
When considering exotic holiday destinations very few people associate the term exotic with the north of France. Even amongst the most enthusiastic French tourists tend to avoid the region. Flanders and Artois are largely flat and make up some of the most industrialized regions of France. In Picardy just the smallest amount of rain means doom and gloom descends. If you are travelling from the UK then this region is almost unavoidable because most likely you will be arriving and departing from Calais.
