Color Line Customer Reviews

  • "Trip to Norway to collect our new puppy."

    Travelled with " Color Line " last week from Hirtshals to Kristiansands and again on our return journey, on the return trip we had a puppy with us so were worried about leaving him in the car alone for over 3 hours.... Color Line were fantastic and made sure a crew member was available every hour to take us down to the car-deck to check our puppy, this was hugely reassuring for us and made the crossing stress free. The boat was very clean and comfortable to travel on with plenty of seating to enjoy the crossing, restaurants served good quality food and were not overpriced, plenty of duty free shopping to help pass the time and buy some lovely gifts. A very enjoyable experience on board Color Line and we would definitely recommend using this ferry service.

  • "An excellent crossing"

    We were very impressed with our crossing - we had pre-booked seats and a meal in the restaurant and would recommend this as the standard of food was excellent with an amazing choice of dishes, constantly replenished throughout the journey so that you felt that whatever time you ate you would have the same quality of meal. We though it represented excellent value (our crossing was at 4.30pm). The ferry was punctual and boarding and disembarkation were easy. It was also reassuring to know that you had a comfortable seat to return to throughout the trip.
