DFDS Seaways

DFDS Seaways comprises a vast network of routes with ferries to France, UK, Holland, Denmark, Norway and services in the Baltic Sea.

Having provided passenger ferry services for more than 150 years, the business 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.

DFDS Seaways provides great maritime experiences in the form of mini cruise breaks as well as transport services for passengers with vehicles looking to travel around Europe and Scandinavia.

DFDS Seaways provide ferry routes all across Europe including Dover to Calais, Newcastle to Amsterdam, Dunkerque Dover, Newhaven to Dieppe and depart regularly from ports like Portsmouth. Those who sail with DFDS from Dover to France can even receive a free meal in the 7 Seas restaurant onboard.

In addition to the Newcastle - Amsterdam and Oslo - Copenhagen crossings that they’ve operated for many years, DFDS Seaways, in recent years, has acquired the routes of Norfolkline, LD Lines, Transmanche Ferries and DFDS Lisco. All of these services are now run under the DFDS Seaways brand name.

  • "Excellent "

    Travelled Calais to Dover last week....checked in for our 3.30pm ferry but our mirror hanger said we were on the 10.20am!! And it hadn't even docked ...eventually left over an hour late. By contrast our return from Dover to Calais this week was flawless, hence the reasonable review.
