  • "Review"

    Had a fabulous crossing to and from Ireland. Have been to Ireland to visit family many times but always flown, lots to do for children on the ferry. Return trip especially, the children's entertainers were fabulous!!! Will definitely travel with Stena line again. One downside was the cost of breakfast.... Overpriced and very expensive, just under £5 for a bacon roll...... Fed the kids before travelling home.

  • "Great smooth service"

    Brilliant trip to Dublin from Holyhead on the Stena Superfast X. A very easy booking and check in process with friendly staff at the cafe at the port. Smooth experience embarking. Once on board there was plenty of seating and tables, with a separate cinema, soft play for the kids, friendly staff in the restaurant. I travelled on my own with three children who loved the experience and had plenty to occupy them.

  • "Great way to travel!"

    Travelling to Dublin on business resulted in an extremely pleasent experience and the small surcharge to upgrade to Stenna Plus was worth every penny. The journey was extremely comfortable and gave for 3 and a half hours of free time in which was rather productive. The staff couldn't do enough to help and the breakfast was excellent! The only minor comment was the wifi which was a little 'sketchy'. Having said this, it didn't effect my experience

  • "bookings "

    my trip was excellent the ferry was clean and comfortable especially the quiet room which i really appreciated ! the food was excellent which made the trip out to Ireland very pleasant indeed however which was entirely my own fault i had booked the ferry home at 2 am in the morning and not as was wanted which was the afternoon ferry i was treated with great respect by the lady taking the tickets that day ,i think that my only complaint would be the extra funds i had to pay to get on the afternoon ferry which i felt was excessive ! i do acknoledge the mistake was mine but felt after paying £244.00 to travel then having to pay such a lot more was a little bit sad but the lady was very pleasant and dealt with it all very simpathetically as i did feel a bit of a fool never the less i arrived home safely and would certainly travel again with stenna ,i shall just make sure i book the afternoon return ferry next time

    We booked online which was straightforward. The crossing itself passed quickly as there was a small shop, restaurant, cinema and games room on board. Excellent choice of hot and cold food in the restaurant. Refillable coffee too! Staff were friendly and helpful!

  • "My first ferry trip"

    Not having traveled on a ferry before, I was a little unsure what to expect. I found myself pleasantly surprised! Boarding was easy and uncomplicated thanks to excellent communication by the marshals and a logical boarding process. While waiting for boarding to commence, I was happy to find out that there was a lounge where you could get refreshments and relax, and bathroom facilities. Once my vehicle was stowed away, I familiarized myself with the layout of the ferry. It has multiple lounges (Family, food and quiet), a shop, arcade, cinema, restaurant serving meals, bar and coffee shop, viewing decks and free wifi. Basically, plenty to keep you comfy and entertained for the short trip. On my return leg I had also booked a cabin. This was compact but functional, with a comfy single bed, TV and kettle and a small bathroom. Everything was very clean and tidy. Disembarking was equally pleasant. Marshals control the whole process and I was on the road again without any issue.
