In winter, you have the option of one or two daily departures. In May, an additional departure is added; from July, the number of daily departures increases to four. Starting in September, this gradually returns to the winter schedule.

The route does not have a ‘fixed schedule'; one day you might have a night crossing, while on another day, there might be a daytime crossing. So, it's a matter of adjusting and finding what works best for your schedule.

The best way to check the departures is by entering your desired travel date in the right column on the DFDS website.
