Oslo Copenhagen Ferry reviews

  • "Great trip and great booking company."

    This review doesn't need to be long, because virtually everything was satisfactory. From booking the trip online, to the customer service while boarding (and on the ship), to leaving, and staying overnight onboard... It was all fantastic and so much better than taking a bus or train. I rarely write reviews, so this is unusual that I'm so pleased. The only thing I'll mention is to book a dinner when you order your ticket if you want to eat during "normal" eating times. There is a first come, first serve restaurant that basically just denied us for a couple hours when we tried to get a table for six. We ended up eating at about 8:30. Other than that, don't think about it. Just book.

    I can not comment in the catering as we didn't eat in the boat. The views are amazing and well worth the trip. Excellent service.

Oslo Guide

The capital of Norway is the city of Oslo and is located on an arc of land at the northernmost end of Oslofjord which is almost divided by the Nesodden Peninsular, opposite the city. The city is bounded on its other sides by hills and mountains and is comprised of around 40 islands within its city boundary. It is relatively easy to get around this compact city using public transport or alternatively bicycles can be rented across the city. There are many things to see and do in Oslo including seeing the works by the celebrated artist Edvard Munch. His works can be found in a number of institutions in the city along with other Norwegian and international artists. The Norwegian government has recently invested large amounts of money in cultural installations, facilities, buildings and festivals in the City of Oslo.

From the city's port, ferries can be taken to destinations in Denmark and Germany. There are daily crossings to Copenhagen with a crossing time of around 16 hours, to Hirtshals with a crossing time of around 10 hours to Frederikshavn with a crossing time of 8 hours and 30 minutes and to Kiel in Germany with a crossing time of around 20 hours. Passenger facilities in Oslo's ferry terminal are rather limited although there is a coffee shop and a small departure hall.

Copenhagen Guide

The city of Copenhagen is located on the east coast of Zealand and is Denmark's capital city. It lies around 40 km to the north west of Malmo in Sweden and around 165 km to the north east of Odense. The city's boundaries extend to parts of the island of Amager and also includes a part of Frederiksberg. The city has received quite a bit of investment in its institutions and infrastructure over the past 10 years or so which in turn has resulted in significant urban and cultural development. Copenhagen is one of northern Europe's major financial centres, home to the Copenhagen Stock Exchange, and is Denmark's cultural, economic and governmental hub.

The city was recognised as the third richest city in the world, by gross earnings, in 2012 which is actually a fall as it was ranked number 1 in 2009. The completion of the Oresund Bridge, which carries rail and roads, Copenhagen has become ever more integrated with the Swedish province of Scania, and its largest city, Malmo.

Ferry services from the city's port depart to destinations in Sweden, Norway and Poland.
