  • "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.

    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.

  • "Oslo to Copenhagen"

    I think that this is a very nice way to travel for those of us who spend too much time on planes. It was cool, comfortable, and nice to be able to freely move about the ship. It took us directly from city center to city center and we quickly got off the ship, grabbed a cab, and were off on our next adventure. You're on holiday. Enjoy the adventure.

    DURING THE PROCESS OF BOOKING ON LINE, IT WASN'T CLEAR FOR ME THE FEATURES OF THE CABIN AND I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO MAKE A BETTER CHOICE. I TRAVELED WITH MY HUSBAND AND WE GOT A TOO SMALL CABIN WITH TWO BUNK BEDS STACKED ONE OVER THE OTHER. IT WAS TOO UNCOMFORTABLE.

  • "Very Cozy and Nice Trip"

    I love the Pearl. For one thing you would never had such an experience to stand on the rear deck in the deep darkness of a scandinavian snowstorm. It's like a sort of experience in a movie. The harsh and powerful blizard would swallow you and throw you into the waves of abysmal sea behind the ship! But you know it would be impossible when you got back to the warm and quiet cabin.

  • "Praise and criticism "

    "The trip was very good technically and from the ferry price very reasonable. Extent it is fun and it is beneficial for a family to travel to Copenhagen by ferry. CRITICAL remarks: 1 Our family got a cabin in close proximity / on the dance bar. It was possible to sleep because of the noise after two clock at night. I suggest direct ferries and DFDS Seaways still urgently to give when booking the cabins references to "" restless cabins "" or for FAMILIES primarily the cabins in a quieter location (not over night bar or dance halls) offer.   The cabin-position over noisy places should be offered rather young or celebrating guests. It would not be bad if the staff from time to time at night makes a control transition to "celebrating", "guest to ask in the cabins" to rest. 2 The buffet restaurant is quite good, but the reduced "" Children's prices "in" restaurant should also look for 16 - or 17-year-olds are.   "

  • "Copenhagen-Oslo"

    I used this trip as a quick means to visit Oslo for a day while I was in Denmark. When I booked the trip I assumed that since this is not a typical cruise but rather a ferry that when the announcements were made that everyone had to to leave the boat in the morning and that it would depart for whatever reason that we had to completely vacate our room. The one thing I wish I had known ahead of time is that since we were taking the evening ferry back that night, and were assigned the same cabin that we could have left our luggage in the room which would have allowed us to pack more appropriately rather than planning to depart with everything we took on board. Other than the very expensive but typical Scandinavian prices for food and drink, everything was good. Staff was friendly and courteous. Parking is directly across the street from the terminal in Copenhagen and taxis readily available outside for quick trips into the city.

  • "Newcastle /Amsterdam trip"

    The ferries are very comfortable and the service aboard is very pleasant. The loading and unloading of cars is appalling. Under crew control my car had paintwork damaged as I was directed to go too close to the wall on the outward trip. On the return voyage we were instructed to stay in the car until finally in position, at which point the only way for myself and one passenger to get out of the car was by climbing over to the other door as we were against the wall on deck 4. No lift was available until we climbed to deck 6 which was not easy for my passengers, all pensioners with ability problems. I spoke with the loading officer who blamed the dock company and said he had this problem regularly, but could not persuade the people concerned to help.
