Although DFDS have generally concentrated on freight and passenger traffic on North Sea (and to a lesser extent the Baltic Sea), they operated a ferry service in the Mediterranean between 1971 and 1981, as well as a ferry service from New York to Freeport as well as Miami - Freeport in the early 1980s under the name Scandinavian World Cruises (which later developed into SeaEscape). Between 1988 and 1999 the company's passenger services were marketed under the name Scandinavian Seaways. As of 2007, DFDS is the largest and oldest Danish shipping company.

DFDS Seaways

DFDS Seaways is the passenger-carrying division of DFDS A/S. It operates five cruiseferries and one ro-pax ferry on routes connecting Denmark to Norway and United Kingdom to the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway. The company has recently (2006) renewed their fleet, purchasing M/S King of Scandinavia and M/S Princess of Norway to replace the last ships dating from the 1970s still in service. The company as acquired a reputation as something of an expert in purchasing used ships, as the last time DFDS Seaways ordered a newbuilding was in 1978. In 2006 DFDS Seaways stopped serving Sweden when M/S Princess of Scandinavia was taken off service and the Copenhagen - Oslo service ships stopped calling at Helsingborg.
