Blue Riband a la carte. In addition there are bars, cafés, a kids' club and shops.

DFDS have a long and distinguished history of providing ferry crossings on the North
Sea. The comfortable ferry crosses in around 24 hours, allowing you to get a good
night's sleep on board before exploring the spectacular and beautiful Norwegian
fjords and mountains.
The Newcastle ferry port is actually in North Shields and easily accessible a few
minutes from the northern entrance to the Tyne Tunnel on the A19 trunk road. All
of the Norwegian ferry ports are within a few minutes walk of their respective town
During the summer months, between mid May and late September, the ferry leaves Newcastle
Wednesday afternoon and goes straight to Bergen, returning by the same direct route
on Thursday afternoon. At other times it calls at Stavanger and Haugesund in both
directions. So you can enjoy the cruise along the coast between these ports which
is a pleasure in itself.
Minimum check in is 2 hours prior to departure. Pets are not accepted on this
