Press Release


Hamburg, 06 December 2018 . The Danish shipping company DFDS was honored for the eighth time in a row with the World Travel Award for Best Shipping Company. At the 25th World Travel Awards on December 1, 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal, the ferry company once again received the coveted award.

The prestigious World Travel Awards are considered the Oscars of the travel and tourism industry, and since 1993 have excelled in excellence in the sector. The awarding of the title among the nominated travel companies will be decided by a jury of leading industry experts and consumers.

"We are very pleased to have been recognized as one of the world's leading ferry operators for another year. We would like to thank our loyal customers and partners who re-selected DFDS, "says Pete Akermann, Marketing Director.

"Our goal is to provide our customers with outstanding customer service and an exceptional ferry experience, whether on our cruise ferries, eg from Amsterdam to Newcastle, or on our flexible, hourly crossings from Calais and Dunkirk to Dover," says Akermann.

"We attach great importance to the feedback from our customers in order to further develop and improve our service and our offers. This year's investments in the new catering concept on the Amsterdam-Newcastle route, as well as the upcoming renovations of the dining rooms on board our ships on the Dunkirk-Dover route are proof of that. We want to continue our growth course and continue to invest in our ships and our product in the future to ensure the satisfaction of our customers, "explains Akermann.
