  • "Comfortable. A bit late"

    Definitely recommend paying for the comfort seats and meal. Otherwise, you’re likely to be stuck next to rowdy (or seasick!) children in basic. Small ship that goes fast (32 knots) so feels rougher than larger, slower ships. Efficient loading and unloading cars. Was 15 minutes late arriving.

  • "Efficient way to travel between Denmark and Norway"

    We travelled in peak holiday season which meant that the Sea Cat was full with passengers not being able to find a seat. The car loading staff were very efficientg as were gthe rest of the crew

  • "Colour line ferries"

    This is the first time I have travelled with Color Line and I would like to say how easy it was to check in to start with. I travelled over on the high speed ferry 2 weeks ago and was very impressed with the ship it’s crew but especially the food which I pre booked for myself and daughter. It was of exceptional quality and the taste reminded me of my childhood in Denmark. The return trip on the Superspeed was also very impressive with very little movement despite a rough sea which enabled my daughter and I to again eat excellent food in the quiet of the Business Class lounge. If I ever return to Norway by car I will definitely be sailing with you.

Kristiansand Guide

The Norwegian city of Kristiansand is located in Vest-Agder county and is Norway's fifth largest city. The city was founded in 1641 by King Christian IV from who the city takes its name. The 'sand' component of the name refers to the sandy headland the city was built on. Many tourists visit the city, especially during the summer months, and of particular importance is Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement Park which is just to the east of the city. With just under 1 million visitors in 2012, the zoo is actually Norway's second most visited attraction, after Holmenkollen. Most of the zoo's animals are shown in their natural habitats. Animals on display include wolves, lions, tigers and lynx. Although the amusement park is open during the summer, the zoo is open all year round.

The city's port provides ferry connections to destinations in Sweden, Denmark and the UK. The two main routes that operate out of Kristiansand are to Gothenburg in Sweden, which begins and ends in Newcastle in the UK, and to Hirtshals in Denmark. The ferry terminal has good passenger facilities which include public telephones, toilets, a convenience store and good access for disabled passengers.

Hirtshals Guide

Hirtshals is a town and port located at the top of the Jutland Peninsular in northern Denmark and lies on the coast of the island of Vendsyssel-Thy. The town was developed around a man made harbour that was built between 1919 and 1931 and was connected to the rest of Denmark by a railway line, the Hirtshals-Hjorring line, in 1925. The town's fishing fleet is now one of the largest in Denmark and was facilitated by an expansion of the harbour in 1966, and along with tourism fishing plays an important role in the town's economy.

The town's shops are kept busy by passengers disembarking from ferries docking at the town's harbour. This is especially the case with Norwegian visitors who shop in the town year round. One of the most popular attractions in the town is the Nordsoen Oceanarium which is one of Europe's largest aquariums and contains over 70 different species in its collection.

Ferry services departing from the town's port depart to Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Langesund, Larvik, Seydisfjordur and Torshavn.
