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.

  • "Dunkerque to Dover"

    Used this route for first time as timing good for us and thought Dunkerque would be less busy than Calais. Found the signposting to ferry port very poor, the last but one roundabout had no signage at all on relative exit  and sat Ave would not take address provided. After several kilometres of wrong turns found the port and the rest was great, once through French security. Especially enjoyed picnic style tables on deck.
