Ferry link between the UK and Scandinavia to be restored (updated 18 August)
A new operator is set to replace the soon-to-finish DFDS ferry between the UK and Denmark.
Regina Line, a Danish company, sets sail next spring carrying cars, freight and foot passengers.
It has not so far said which ports it will use.
The boat – M/S Regina, previously with Tallink in the Baltic – will depart at 18:00 and arrive at 13:00 the next day with three round trips per week.
Prices start at £60 per person in a cabin or £29 for a seat in low season. It’s not clear if the price includes a vehicle.
The company says it will take bookings from October.
More details as soon as we have them. See www.reginaline.dk for more.
