Danish authorities have decided that all passengers from 12 years and above, shall use face mask or visors while using public transportation. This implies also for ferries that travels through danish ports and ports outside, including Norway. Fjord Line is therefor under this regulation, as we operate through danish waters and have a terminal in Denmark.
We encourage our passengers to wear your face mask during the whole journey, in situations and on places where there are crowded.
