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.

"Travelling with dog"
This was our first trip by ferry and we enjoyed it very much. however the facilities for dogs is very limited. there is an outdoor exercise area which is basic but clean and good enough. Pet friendly cabins which are ideal are few on each boat and booked out very quickly. the Dog Hotel is a small hot room where the dog crates are stcked on top of each other - quite awful. or the dogs can be left in the car for short trips but the car was much too hot on our sailing.

"Superb service with fantastic staff"
We were worried about our trip with all the negative press but we couldn’t fault anything about either the outward or return journey. Extremely well organised, clean and professional.
