DFDS Seaways

DFDS Seaways comprises a vast network of ferry routes with crossings to and from the UK, France, Holland, Denmark, Norway and services in the Baltic Sea.

Having provided passenger ferry services for more than 150 years, the business now has a fleet of ships considered to be one of the largest of any ferry operator in the world. It began as a steamship business in 1866, when Carl Frederik brought together a number of Danish steamship companies, which soon culminated into the fundamental part of the DFDS fleet.

DFDS Seaways provides great maritime experiences in the form of mini cruise breaks as well as transport services for passengers with vehicles looking to travel around Europe and Scandinavia.

In addition to the Newcastle - Amsterdam and Oslo - Copenhagen crossings that they’ve operated for many years, DFDS Seaways, in recent years, has acquired the routes of Norfolkline, LD Lines, Transmanche Ferries and DFDS Lisco. All of these services are now run under the DFDS Seaways brand name.

  • "OK - but terrible cold!"

    We had an early morning departure from Dover. It was freezing cold o all the crossing! Very unpleasant.

  • "Wonderful experience "

    It was with great reluctance that I agreed to go with my partner on the ferry to Paris as I usually get sea sickness . The experience was totally different to what I expected especially that the premium lounge was so nice , staff was very accommodating . The seats and couches all new and very comfortable. Snacks constantly refilled and nice . TV onboard with the news was very appreciated too . I will certainly go back very soon and will recommend to anyone !! Thank you DFDS for helping me overcome my fears and even enjoy the trip so much !!
