Entry restrictions to Norway
Based on the recommendation of the FHI entry restrictions to Norway apply to Germany, Denmark and other countries (overview map and further information here). Please check ahead of each trip whether you are authorized to enter. The restrictions have different consequences for our ferry operations. If travel restrictions change our departures may also change.
January 4th, the Norwegian authorities implemented new Covid-19 measures. Based on these measures, Color Line has decided to cancel all departures on the Oslo-Kiel route until 18. February 2021. First sailing from Oslo will be on 19. February. Departure time at 1400. Only for guests, boarding in Oslo.
The route is operated by Color Carrier with departure from Oslo on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and departure from Kiel on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. More information.

To ensure our passengers a safe journey, Color Line has now introduced requirements for the use of face masks on board our ships. All passengers over the age of 12 must therefore wear a face mask during the entire crossing and when driving on board and ashore. You do not have to wear a face mask when you are seated at your table and consuming food and drink or in your cabin. We encourage everyone to bring a face mask, but it will also be possible to buy this at the reception on board and at check-in.
Free upgrade to FLEX
Secure the FLEX tariff free of charge. Anyone booking a new crossing with departure date in 2020 and 2021 before March 1st 2021 can change or cancel it free of charge up to 24 hours before departure.
Ticket to a cancelled departure
All guests with tickets affected by a cancellation will be contacted via email. We would love to have you back on board again, and therefore offer to change your departure dates at no extra cost. If you need to change your dates again, you can do so up until 24 hours before departure.
Ticket to a regular departure
Our departures will be scheduled based on guidelines from the authorities. All guests with tickets affected by a cancellation will be contacted. If you want to cancel a booking on a departure that has not been cancelled by Color Line our general terms and conditions apply.
