Copenhagen Oslo Ferry reviews

  • "Fantastic crossing but dangerous disembarkation."

    We loved this overnight rip to Oslo. We were able to board just after lunch and so we walked straight through no hassle . Our cabin was the basic but had everything we needed for the one night. The ferry was full to the brim of Japanese travellers and a lot was catered towards them to suggest that this was a regular occurrence. The only two down falls were that we had to wait around for a table in the morning for breakfast despite getting there for 7am as it was heaving and the exiting of the ferry was horrendous as we came down the lift with our cases and it opened up into a huge crush foyer on the 5th deck where we couldn't turn back or forward and were trapped in a huge crush where myself and husband tried our best to protect out children from the crushing pressure if stupid tourists trying to push towards an exit that wasn't open saying 'in group, in group's as an excuse to crush you further. We live in Merseyside and this experience was harrowing. We have travelled on DFDS many times before from Britain and the exit has always there been a very orderly queue.

  • "Good ferry trip Oslo to Copenhagen "

    Hi we used the DFDS ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo and returned four days later, found the ferries very clean with help staff, only a couple of comments to improve things which I found slightly disappointing, the on place to get a decent cup of tea was in the Seven seas buffet lounge which you can only access by either paying for the evening buffet or breakfast buffet, all other bars/restaurants have a good selection of fruit teas or earl gray but no normal type tea. None of the staff thought to access the Seven seas lounge and grab some normal tea bags. The other item was the limited menu in the little Italy restaurant both the steak restaurant and the Italian restaurant share the same kitchen area and when asked if they could do a side order of chips the said they were not available in the Italian restaurant even though several orders for chips passed our table into the stake restaurant. These are just small things but would have finished a great trip on the ferries.

Copenhagen Guide

Located on the eastern coast of Zealand, Copenhagen is Denmark's capital city and lies around 40 km to the north west of Malmo in Sweden and 165 km to the north east of Odense. Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen became Denmark's capital city in the 15th century. As Denmark's cultural hub, Copenhagen has many museums, galleries and music venues for visitors to enjoy. The National Museum, Nationalmuseet, is Denmark's largest museum of archaeology and cultural history and can be found in Copenhagen. It contains the histories of Danish and foreign cultures. Denmark's National Gallery (Statens Museum for Kunst) is the national art museum with collections dating from the 12th century to the present. Along with Danish painters, artists represented in the collections include Rubens, Rembrandt, Picasso, Braque, Léger, Matisse, Emil Nolde, Olafur Eliasson, Elmgreen and Dragset, Superflex and Jens Haaning.

Copenhagen's port is the main port for the Oresund region and serves as the gateway to the Baltic Sea. The harbour is jointly operated by the Swedish city of Malmo and accommodates ferries departing to Sweden, Norway and Poland with many services scheduled each week.


Oslo Guide

The city of Oslo is the capital of Norway and is a bit different from many other European cities. Although there are a number of impressive buildings in the city's historical districts of St. Hanshaugen and Frogner, Oslo does not have the architectural gems that other cities have. However, Oslo is a popular place to visit especially amongst those who love the outdoors as it lies next to the Skagerrak Strait and is directly to the south of the green belt area. Known as the North Woods (Nordmarka), hiking and even seasonal skiing are extremely popular here. Visitors should make the most of the Norwegian summer by visiting one of the city's many beaches on the peninsula of Bygdoy area, or take a stroll around the acclaimed Vigeland Sculpture Park. However, if you arrive in the winter, visitors may wish to try their hand at cross-country skiing around the Nordmarka woodlands, or head down to the Holmenkollen Ski Jump and watch one of the regular championships. A recent addition to Oslo is the Nobel Peace Centre, added since this is the city where the Nobel Peace Prize is presented each December.
