    Really enjoyed the journey to oslo from copenhagen and back. My friend and i had the smaller cabins because they were cheaper, but they still were comfy. The staff very helpful and civilised and theres almost nothing you can't get on board. Planning to come back again-thank you dfds

  • "Great"

    Great and easy way to get to Copenhagen. The room was a bit smaller, but we didnt mind. We just needed a bed to sleep. Bathroom was ok, too. The ship has many restaurants, bars,.. also live music! There is a bubble zone with a swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzis. Smoking area outside on the deck with covered seating, so you dont feel cold weather. We enjoyed and definitely recommend!

  • "Excellent DinnerExperience but not the same for Breakfast"

    This ferry is an effortless way to travel between Oslo & Copenhagen and visa versa. Booking in was simple , no queues and straight to my Cabin. After unpacking what was deemed necessary I made may way to the Espresso Café for Coffee & a Danish and contemplated which restaurant I should take dinner in. Having decided on the SJO Restaurant I promptly made my reservation before returning to my cabin for a Shower & change. The Meal & wines at the restaurant were superb and the attention to detail by the staff second to none; one of the best dining experiences of all time. Having completed my meal with Coffee, Petite Fours and Cognac I retired to my room a very contented passenger. The next morning I wished to continue my experience on board only to find that my choice was restricted to either coffee & a pastry at the Espresso House or fighting it out at the Self Service Buffet. I choice the latter and was most disappointed especially after my previous nights experience. Plates were cold as was the food by time you got to the table, trying to get the staff's attention for Coffee was nigh impossible and if you left your table for a minute to find some for yourself you found that during your absence they had appeared like the Tooth Fairy and cleared your table. So why oh why don't DFD give an alternative; I was taken from a high to rock bottom in 8 hours. I score the SJO Restaurant 5 stars and the breakfast buffet 0 Stars so an average of 2.5 which does not give any credit to the guys in the Restaurant. So wake up DFD and serve breakfast to basic travellers in one of your other Restaurants.

  • "Ferry trip Copenhagen to Oslo "

    The ferry was similar to a cruise ship and it was advertising mini cruises with entertainment in the evening. The cabins were small but the bed was much appreciated for the overnight crossing.

  • "Great Trip"

    Had a great trip with Direct Ferries from Oslo to Copenhagen on the overnight ferry. The staff were excellent and very knowledgeable - especially about wine ! We had a smooth crossing and the only criticism was the cabins were warm but maybe we hadn't figured the heating system out. Would definitely travel with them again, highly recommend.

    We had exceptional accomodations, good food,and wonderful service.the staff were all so helpful and friendly. The outdoor bars were so enjoyable. While smoking was generally not allowed, there was enough space for those of us who haven't yet kicked the habit,. We would recommend travelling this way to Norway .

  • "A memorable return voyage on Pearl Saeways"

    I was most impressed by almost every aspect of the voyage. The ship is spacious and my cabin,a single outside with TV could not be faulted. The ships schedule means that travel is leisurely. The food in the 'Seven Seas' Buffet was so good that it was a challenge to do justice to the options provided. The ships staff were all friendly and very helpful and the ship departed and arrived almost eaxctly on time. The approach to Oslo up the fjord is most impressive.Overall an excellent journey which I thoroughly recommend.

  • "Oslo-Copenhagen Excellent Service / Rough Sea"

    We embarked on this 17-hour crossing after 8-days of rent-a-car tour across the Scandinavian peninsula. It saved us 600 km of additional drive down the west coast. Service was excellent, there is much to do, The only complaint would be the weather. The weather in august up north is something quite different from what we are used to in the Mediterannean ... those with bouts of sea-sickness - don't forget the pills ...

  • "Great trip and way exceeded our expectations after reading reviews"

    The room was clean and in good repair, and similar to other ship rooms we have had (ship rooms are just small). There was ample deck space and we spent little time in the room. Italian restaraunt was great and we split a delicious pizza. Wine in 'duty free' was expensive and swill. Ask for room on 5th floor to avoid lavatory with your luggage.

  • "Enjoyable overnight cruise"

    Travelled from Copenhagen to Oslo overnight. This was a lovely and scenic way to travel in comfort. Commodore class included an excellent breakfast and our meal in the steak house restaurant was good. A little slow through customs in Oslo but our hotel was an easy walk from the ferry. I would recommend this alternative to flying between capitals.
