DFDS ferries are run by one of the oldest ferry companies in western Europe, having been in the business for over 130 years. They operate throughout the North Sea and western Baltic areas, but from the UK service routes from Newcastle and Harwich to ports in Holland, Denmark and Norway. Their long history of sailing these seas means they pride themselves in delivering an authentic maritime experience in the comfort of modern cruise style ships. As well as providing an important travel link for drivers and foot passengers to these destinations, they offer mini cruises to all their ports where a stop in at a foreign port is just an interesting interlude in an otherwise luxurious and relaxing escape at sea.


Newcastle to Amsterdam Again departing from the International Ferry Terminal, two DFDS ferries provide a daily 15 hour overnight crossing to the port of Ijmuiden, a short distance from Amsterdam.

Harwich to Denmark Every two to three days there is an overnight 17 hour crossing to Esbjerg, Denmark's western gateway.

Oslo to Copenhagen is an overnight service operating daily from both ports.

On board facilities All seven of the DFDS ferries offer similar facilities with small variations in cabin types and restaurants. Since all sailings are overnight cabin accommodation is required, and comes in Economy, Standard and Commodore classes. Traditionally the lower decks are reserved for the cheaper cabins, going up to the deluxe and more spacious Commodore cabins with better ocean views, TV's and complimentary breakfasts. Normally four berth cabins, the standard and economy cabins can be booked for two people only for a small surcharge. Several cabins are set aside for disabled travellers with special access needs. Dining can be reserved before your journey, either at the a la carte restaurant or the more informal buffet restaurants and cafes. Either way DFDS strive to provide high quality cuisine with a Scandinavian slant the smorgasbord at the buffet for example. And if you can still move after that, there is a nightclub on each ship, or for those who feel like taking it a bit easier, relaxing bars and cinemas. As on all ferries, shopping is easy with the emphasis on big brand clothing, wine, spirits, tobacco and perfume, as well as regional specialities from Scandinavia.
