Taking the family on a ferry to France

Taking the family on a ferry to France

I have some great memories of taking the ferry to France.

I recall gong with school to practice our French , my first time abroad and so very exciting. I was in awe of the ferry and could not believe we were sailing to another country.

The next time I boarded a ferry to France I was off to Paris to visit my friend Jane who was au pairing there. I felt very grown up taking this journey by myself.

I remember going with my mum and aunty on a  cheap ferry to France to buy party supplies and I remember going with friends for a bit of a giggle. I have never yet been on Eurostar. It seems to lack the same spirit of adventure to me!

I have been thinking a lot about taking my kids abroad  recently and I think they would love a boat trip to France.

Travelling by ferry with kids looks more fun than I thought …..there is soft play, entertainment, lots of space, even cots provided….

And I have been looking at some ferry deals  too and they look very interesting. There are a host of deals for day trips, gourmet trips, whale and dolphin spotting mini breaks and much more.

Mainly I got excited by the chalet camping holidays.  These holidays can be booked alongside the ferry crossing so you can get one inclusive deal. They look really good value actually and a lot of fun.

My kids would adore a week or two somewhere like this!

Overall taking the kids on a ferry to France looks like a fun, inexpensive way to get aboard and much more child friendly than I thought.

Have you took the family on a ferry to France?

 If you plan to travel to France after the end of 2022, you may need to apply for an ETIAS. Before you travel, it is recommended that you check if you are eligible for ETIAS to enter France.
