"Great way to get around in Scandinavia"
Reviewed 20 June 2014 by Melissa
Our family took the DFDS ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo. The room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom ensuite. There were restaurants, a buffet, and a coffee shop, but no cafeteria where a family could pick and choose items for supper and/or breakfast.

"Great overnight trip"
Reviewed 07 June 2014 by Janice
The ferry was way above our expectations. I was very pleasantly surprised. The beds were very comfortable and although the room was compact it had everything we needed. Staff were pleasant and friendly. Good choice of restaurants or snack bar. The ferry was modern and furnished very nicely. Thank you for a good trip and a new experience. An Australian Traveller.

Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark. It was founded around 1000 by Sweyn I Forkbeard and his son Canute the Great. It was only a fishing village by the name of "Havn" (harbour) until the middle of the 12th century when it grew in importance after coming into the possession of the Bishop Absalon, who fortified it in 1167. The excellent harbour encouraged Copenhagen's growth until it became an important centre of commerce. During World War II Copenhagen was occupied by German troops along with the rest of the country from 9th of April 1940 until 4th of May 1945. In August 1943, when the government's collaboration with the occupation forces collapsed, several ships where sunk in Copenhagen Harbour by the Royal Danish Navy to prevent them being used by the Germans. The city has grown greatly since the war, in the seventies using the so-called five-finger-plan of communter trainlines to surrounding towns and suburbs.
Oslo is the capital city of Norway. According to the Norse lore, Oslo was founded around 1048 by king Harald Hardråde.
It occupies an arc of land at the northern end of the Oslofjord. The fjord, which is nearly bisected by the Nesodden peninsula opposite Oslo, lies to the south; in all other directions Oslo is surrounded by green hills and mountains. There are 40 islands within the city limits, the largest being Malmøya (0.56 km²), and scores more around the Oslofjord. Oslo has 343 lakes, the largest being Maridalsvannet (3.91 km²). This is also a main source of drinking water for large parts of Oslo. The highest point is Kirkeberget, at 629 m. Although the city's population is small compared to most European capitals, it occupies an unusually large land area. Its boundaries encompass many parks and open areas, giving it an airy and often very green appearance.
