Dover has long been a safe harbour for catching a ferry to France, it is also a port of choice for over 20 cruise ship companies and over 200,000 passengers each year. Dover has two state-of-the-art terminals with the capacity to accommodate three ships at once. The port of call options see the ships visit Norway, the Baltic, round Britain, Iceland, Mediterranean and the Canaries.
A cruise ship holiday is a great way to see the world in comfort, waking up to a different view each day with good food and good service. Often passengers coming from outside the UK joining a cruise ship arrive a few days early at a London airport and will either stay in London for a few days prior to travelling to Dover or stay in Dover itself for a few days. For the more adventurous passengers it is a time to see a bit of England though it does come with a few dilemmas such as where to stay, how to get to the cruise terminal from the hotel, what to do if you arrive early at the hotel, what to do about dinner, what to do if you have a late check in on the boat and a 10.30am check out at the hotel.
At Brambles B&B we are quite used to hosting pre and post cruise guests so however you choose to get to us, let us help with some of the solutions to the small uncertainties.
We can provide restaurant quality evening meals with really great deserts if you just want to relax when you arrive , packed lunches if you are out for the day. Our breakfast menu is largely gluten free and we have some nice vegan & vegetarian options. Check out our menu on our website.
We are only 15minutes from Dover cruise terminal, we can order you a taxi to the terminal on the day of your departure and you are welcome to sit in our coffee lounge if you have a late boarding time.
