The fleet that they run is considered as one of the largest fleets in Northern Europe
There are seven modern passenger ferries which offer about 9,000 "bed-nights" each night in the summer season and has "parking facilities" for 2,500 cars. During each year, the company will transport over 1.7 million passengers and over 200,000 cars on their eight routes across the North Sea.
DFDS try to offer passengers an experience of a genuine maritime atmosphere - trying to provide an excellent level of service and style. They have many different sizes of ship which have a wide range of facilities, but try to give each ship their own charm and atmosphere.
As far as safety is concerned, the vessels conform to the highest possible standards of safety regulations, and these include the recent SOLAS requirements (the international convention for safety of life at sea). All of the crew are fully trained in emergency procedures. Should there be an emergency, the necessary practised safety routines will be immediately instigated.
When you depart land, you will hear safety regulations presented over the loudspeakers, and you will also find more information about safety in both your cabin and other relevant places on board.
DFDS Seaways have come up with some ideas for some different types of breaks, so lets go through what they suggest.
First is the Mini Cruise Break. DFDS says that these are good for when you are looking for a romantic break, an action packed family outing or fun with friends. There is sufficient time to enjoy the experience of cruising. You can sample the bars, live entertainment and restaurants and on the next day you can see the sights of your destination or get transferred to a different city before taking a boat home.
Holidays and City Cruisebreaks are for longer holidays, a chance for families to take their car on a boat to Denmark, Germany, Holland, Sweden or Norway. DFDS offer you a choice of hotels, inns, self-catering holiday centres, country cottages and camping. They offer a brochure through which you can make your choice of holiday.
City cruise breaks combine the mini cruisebreak on the DFDS Holidayliners with a short stay in a top city such as Amsterdam, Hamburg or Copenhagen. Perfect for weekends with friends, family outings or a romantic weekend.
All of the DFDS ships are different in size, but each of the them have a singular charm and atmosphere which is why many of their travellers go frequently.
