The Danish passenger shipping line DFDS Seaways, part of DFDS Group, said on Wednesday (6 September) that it has purchased the passenger vessel Fjord Norway from Norwegian shipping company Fjord Line.

After renovation the vessel will continue to serve the Bergen-Haugesund-Stavanger-Newcastle route, but under DFDS Seaways' flag.

Fjord Norway and the Bergen-Newcastle route will replace DFDS Seaways' service between Amsterdam and Newcastle, currently operated with the vessel Princess of Scandinavia. In connection with the acquisition of Fjord Norway DFDS Seaways has therefore sold the Princess of Scandinavia to international buyers.

No financial details have been disclosed.
