    Surprisingly fun way to travel between these great cities. Lovely views of Oslo Fjords. Enjoyed the troubadour entertaining in the bar. Met some nice people enjoying the deck. All good.

  • "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.

  • "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 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.
