More About DFDS

Founded in 1866, DFDS has provided passenger ferry services for more than 150 years. Since the acquisition of Norfolkline in 2010, DFDS operates a fleet of ferries considered to be one of the largest in northern Europe. The name DFDS stands for "Det Forenede Dampskibs-Selskab", Danish for "The United Steamship Company".

In 2006 DFDS introduced the biggest ever ship to cruise from Newcastle on a scheduled service, the MS King of Scandinavia, now renamed MS King Seaways. The ship underwent major refurbishment to bring it up to the standards expected of a DFDS Seaways Holidayliner, offering customers a wide range of quality onboard facilities. More cabins than ever before have a breathtaking seaview and four restaurants including buffet and a-la-carte options. It's two onboard cinemas offer passengers the latest blockbuster movies and a wide range of wines, beers and spirits are available in the Sports Bar. If relaxation is more the order of the day, the Observation Lounge is the perfect place to relax and while away the hours and watch the world go by. What's more, there are even more Commodore Deluxe class cabins with in-room televisions, mini-bars and fresh fruit for those guests wanting a little bit more luxury.

All of DFDS' ships have luxurious onboard facilities. Enjoy a romantic meal at the Blue Riband restaurants, or treat the kids to a banqueat at the 7 Seas restaurant. Have a drink in one of the comfortable bars and watch the world go by. If that sounds a bit slow for your taste then try one of the discos onboard.

When you travel with DFDS, you will experience a genuine maritime atmosphere with a truly international level of service. Many professional travellers consider them unrivalled in service and facilities for passenger and vehicle traffic.

DFDS have regularly been named the World and Europe's Leading Ferry Operator at the World Travel Awards.
