DFDS Seaways MS Crown of Scandinavia - Further Ferry Information and Vessel Description

MS Crown of Scandinavia is a cruiseferry operated by DFDS Seaways on a route connecting Copenhagen, Denmark to Oslo, Norway. The ship was built in 1994 by Brodogradilište Split in Split, Croatia. She was originally ordered by Euroway and was to be called MS Frans Kockum but never sailed under that name. The ship was also temporarily renamed MS Thomas Mann during construction.

Euroway originally planned to operate two cruiseferries on a route connecting Malmö, Sweden to Travemünde, Germany. To archieve that two identical cruiseferries were ordered from Brodogradilište Split, Croatia, to be called MS Frans Suell and MS Frans Kockum. The ships were a somewhat enlarged version of MS Amorella and MS Isabella that the shipyard had built for SF Line in 1988 and 1989, respectively.

Due to the Yugoslav wars the delivery of the Frans Suell was delayed by nearly a year, from 1991 to 1992. Poor profitability of the route, further delays in construction of the second ship and a joint operations agreement with Silja Line made Euroway decide to cancel the order for MS Frans Kockum.

After the order was cancelled, the ship was renamed MS Thomas Mann and work on her was continued, but at a more leisurely pace. In March 1994 the Thomas Mann sailed from the shipyard in Split to the Fincantieri shipyard at Trieste, Italy, where finalising touches were put on her.

On 2 May 1994 DFDS made a tentative agreement to purchase the ship, and bought her ten days later. The ship was finally delivered on 11 June 1994. From Trieste she sailed to Lloyd Werft, Bremerhaven, Germany, where stern sponsons were added to the ship for increased stability.

On 26 July the ship was renamed MS Crown of Scandinavia and began sailing on Scandinavian Seaways (a marketing name for DFDS passenger operations) Copenhagen — Helsingborg — Oslo -service. In 1999 the company name reverted to DFDS Seaways. Sometime between 1999 and 2003 the ship's livery was slightly altered, the frames of her bridge windows (originally black) were now painted white, arguably unbalancing her profile. In January 2005 the ship was rebuilt at Öresundsvarvet, Landskrona, Sweden. On 15 October 2006 the call at Helsingborg was dropped from the route in order to cut down fuel and pilot expenses
