Having provided passenger ferry services for more than 150 years, DFDS Seaways now has a fleet of ships considered to be one of the largest of any ferry operator in the world. It began as a steamship business in 1866, when Carl Frederik brought together a number of Danish steamship companies, which soon culminated into the fundamental part of the DFDS fleet. Those who sail with DFDS from Dover to France can even receive a free meal in the 7 Seas restaurant onboard.
