    This links shows a new Ferry running between Harwich and Esbjerg starting at Easter. But apparently they are not yet taking bookings so it may still be at the planning stage. http://www.reginaline.dk/timetable-uk.html

    Price look good, single way tickets £60 per person with cabin, £100 for the MH.

    Sounds cheap. The old DFDS was an excellent service with great food for a ferry..light years ahead of their channel crossings offerings.

    We used the DFDS one for the return journey last summer and ended up getting full refund on our fare due to the state of our cabin.
    So hopefully this company will be a lot better as its a great route

    Would be a very convenient service for that price. Dropped them an encouraging email as it can't do any harm.

    As a new company they might be open to discounting for clubs, eh @Jim ?? :)

    I have a sense of deja-vu here, last year they talked about starting in spring 2015. Will be handy for visiting the outlaws, if and when it happens.

    Regina Lines, oft mentioned on here. I emailed them back in the spring to see if and when they starting but no reply to date. I don't see how they can ever operate at those rates when DFDS found it too expensive to meet the fuel emissions targets
