Color Line

Color line is Norway’s largest, and one of Europe's leading ferry companies, representing more than a hundred years of continuous maritime traffic between Norway and Europe.

The brand we know as Color Line was introduced in 1990 after the merging of Jahre Line and Norway Line, and the takeover of Fred Olsen ferries, with today’s figures standing at 4.2 million passengers, 800,000 cars and 160,000 trailers carried annually. Currently employing 3,500 people in 4 countries, Color Line’s headquarters are located in Oslo, alongside multiple Norwegian offices all over the nation.

On board Color Line's ships you'll find facilities and activities suitable for all age groups including large, tax-free shops with a wide selection of goods, play areas and an assortment of entertainment for young and old customers alike. You'll also have the choice of a wide range of cabin accommodation ranging from modest economy style cabins to roomy Color Class suites.

The fleet contains MS Color Magic, the largest cruise ferry with car deck in the world, while MS Color Fantasy, Color Viking, Superspeed 1, Superspeed 2 and Color Hybrid are all world-class vessels, carrying huge numbers of passengers at a time.

  • "Excellent ferry service with very good food"

    We had a superb Junior suite Kiel-Oslo and were delighted to be upgraded to the owner’s suite on the return journey. Very comfortable and spacious accommodation with fantastic views, excellent breakfast in pleasant surroundings with, again, good views, and attentive and helpful crew especially in the restauarant. When there was a problem with our main course the staff more than made up for it. ColorLine Line has spoiled us for other cross channel (England-France) ferries!

  • "Kurzweilige, gut organisierte Überfahrt"

    Gut organisierte und kurze Überfährt au Fähre mit vielfältigen Angeboten. Rüchsichtslosigkeit einiger Gäste bezüglich der "liegenden" Nutzung und Blockierung mehrerer Sitzplätze fällt unangenehm auf.
