Following heavy competition on the Norway - Denmark route, in 2005 Fjord Line began streamlining operations. On return of the MS Bergen from charter, the MS Fjord Norway and the Norway - UK route were sold to DFDS. The MS Jupiter was laid up for sale.
On 1 January 2008 Fjord Line merged with fast ferry operator Master Ferries.
In 2014 Fjord Line became the world's first ferry operator to use contactless radio frequency identification RFID smart cards for the cabin locks. This solution was provided by Carus Ferry Ltd Ab.
