DFDS SEAWAYS: News & Updates

Recommended Posts

Are both King and Princess scheduled for dry-docking in the new year? Sorry If I missed this elsewhere.

I doubt they're planning to close or scale back the route this time (for a change), it's clearly an operational decision. Hopefully the logic behind it will become clearer soon...

But....they were built for the Baltic weren’t they?  I think they were built for Travemunde-Trelleborg.  So surely their ice classification would have been appropriate for the Baltic?

I've just checked King Seaways on a RINA print off I have, her last survey was done at Ijmuiden January '18, she's definitely 1B. Maybe that's why they've opted for Princess as the work BF had done lowered her classification? I know the Gulfs of Finland and Bothnia ice over quite spectacularly although I think the more southern routes to the north German coast don't.

I need to dig out my laptop as it has my passwords for  bureau veritas/Veristar then I can check them all.

I've read that DFDS' current CEO Niels Smedegaard is standing down at the end of April. I wonder if this will mean any kind of change in direction for the company?
