DFDS Seaways - awards

We’re award-winning!

We hold several prestigious awards and we’re proud of it. We have recently been named as the World’s leading ferry operator 2013 at the World Travel Awards. We hold this prestigious award for both 2012 and 2011. We also won the award of Europe’s leading ferry operator in 2013 and 2012.

The World Travel Awards are considered to be the Oscars of the travel and tourism industry and votes are cast by industry professionals and consumers from around the globe.  Our World Travel Awards recognise our commitment to excellence and dedication to delivering high quality service.

In 2011 we were Which? Travel magazine’s only ‘Recommended Provider’ for ferry travel, and in the same year we were delighted to be named as Best Ferry Operator by the Responsible Tourism Awards. This award recognised our commitment to protecting the marine environment and our work with whale and dolphin charity ORCA.

So travel with us and discover why we are the current Europe & the World’s leading ferry operator.
