Priority Service. This will end on the 20th March 2010 on this route.

December 2011 – 2012 fares announced. Little change fortunately, with fare to Dieppe starting from £39 each way, and to Le Havre from £46 each way.

September 2010 – A new ferry linking France and Spain launches today as the first Motorway of the Sea, a European Union project to take freight transport off the roads. Operated by LD Lines, it offers a three-times-a-week service between Nantes/Saint-Nazaire in Brittany and Gijon in Asturias, northern Spain. The crossing takes 14 hours.

July 2010 – LD Lines ending Boulogne route. More bad news! (LD Lines ferries ended the Dover to Boulogne ferry route completely for tourists from the 5th September 2010).

LD Lines' service now operates into Boulogne's new Hub Port terminal, whose rapidly expanding port facilities and infrastructure will also provide increased freight and tourist traffic capacity which Norman Spirit can carry.

June 2010 – More Boulogne sailings. There are now up to 14 daily crossings to Boulogne.

March 2010 – The "Norman Arrow" fast ferry will operate from Portsmouth to Le Havre from the 26th for six months. The crossing time is just three hours 15 minutes with fares from £109 single (car plus two). The number of sialing per day on the Ramsgate to Ostende route has been increased to four.

November 2009 – The "Norman Express" fast ferry has being replaced with the conventional ferry "Norman Spirit". The new crossing time will be 1 hour 45 minutes.

The introduction of the ship will considerably increase freight and tourist traffic capacity on LD Lines' Dover to Boulogne service.

The "Norman Express" will be used on the Portsmouth Le Havre route from April to September 2010.

September 2009 – New terminal in Boulogne. The new terminal which should mean quicker loading and unloading is now operational. Check the website for directions.

This service started 19th September 2010. LD Lines switched French destinations served from Rosslare. The ferry sailed to Le Havre, but from 19th September it will go to Cherbourg instead. There will be an increase in frequency and shorter crossing times. The 800-passenger Norman Voyager will operate the new service, providing six return sailings a week with a crossing time of 17 hours, compared to the previous 22 hours Le Havre journey duration. The newly built Norman Voyager was introduced by LD Lines in November onto Portsmouth – Le Havre/Le Havre – Rosslare services. It will be replaced by the LD/Transmanche Ferries Cote d'Albatre as a second ship on thePortsmouth -Le Havre route.
