Oslo to Copenhagen boat ride (overnight)?

has anyone done this? The Rick Steves book raves about the Stockholm-Helsinki overnight cruise, but I can't find info about Oslo to Copenhagen

I did Copenhagen to Oslo a couple years ago. It was nice to fall asleep in a fairly comfortable bed and wake up in Oslo. I'd recommend it but it's not glamorous or anything. Definitely low frills :)

Yes, Rick's Scandinavia book gives this route a quicker description (pages 131-2 & 285), including "not as swanky as the Stockholm-Helsinki cruise." Or, you can fly for $100 on Norwegian airlines (I see it displayed as $50 plus taxes and fees).

When planning my trip I considered the overnight ferry. I decided to fly from Copenhagen to Oslo. The flight last about 1 hour and cost $58.00 per person on Norwegian Airlines. Of course I do have another night in hotel in Copenhagen. I will be just getting back from a 7 day cruise and did not want another night on a boat.

We're flying to Oslo in August for $71 on Norwegian Air Shuttle. Easiest way to do it.

I did this a few years ago, so not sure if it is still the same. At the time it was a nice way to get from Oslo to Copenhagen. There was a nice meal, a few different entertainment areas in the evening (bar, music type) and some nice scenary to look at for awhile. I slept pretty well and woke up in Copenhagen. I enjoyed it.
