Every week, DFDS ships large amounts of cars, trailers and containers on our freight ships from Ghent to Gothenburg in Sweden and from Zeebrugge to Rosyth in Scotland.

It has been possible to sail as a private passenger on the Ghent – Gothenburg route for many years. "From 15 May 2018, we will also offer individuals the opportunity to sail as passengers on our cargo ships between Zeebrügge and Rosyth, alone or with their families and friends, and bringing their own car, motorbike, caravan or motorhome," says Sam de Wilde, MD in Ghent and Route Director.

"Travelling on a freight vessel is the ultimate in slow travel: With 32 hours at sea en route to or from Sweden, and 23 hours to or from Scotland, passengers will arrive well rested, and will be able to enjoy life at sea from their cabin, from the dayroom or on a tour on the bridge with the crew, if time permits. All meals are included in the price; drinks are available at any time," he says.
