  • "Fun times couldn't change the weather "

    Sauled on a Friday about 40 minutes prior to landing we were told problem with a stabiliser and high winds that couldn't land for abiut 3 hours. Was disappointed but accepted it. Food was provided for passengers during this time. Was due to return Saturday night all sailings cancelled due to bad weather. Rang stwn Saturday morning and the lady in the phone was very helpful and accommodating. Rescheduled sailing to Sunday. Was advised Sunday via text sailing my be delayed. Arrived at the port and the lady dealing with check in was fantastic. Received money voucher for food. Ferry sailed an hour after scheduled but was aware of it. Id definitely said qoth this company again even with delays and bad weather. Staff were very present. Looking forward to my next trip

  • "Customer service over and above expectation"

    My 10 yr old daughter and I travelled over to Ireland on 12th February 2022, the conditions were not great. very rough sea, 4 metre waves and gale force winds. We were both quite ill, the staff in the club lounge were absolutely fantastic, we were looked after by Holly, she managed to source us a cabin so we could lie down, very knowledgeable, my daughter is Asperghers and was absolutely terrified. The team went above and beyond to ensure passenger safety, comfortable and to reassure, Holly in particular showed a level of empathy and understanding which helped my daughter feel more at ease. The return journey was thankfully not as rough but again the level of customer service was exemplarily. All the team were engaging, took time to address concerns and make passengers feel at ease.

  • "Excellent crossing "

    I travelled on the Stena Estrid, which is beautifully modern and clean with wifi that works. I have travelled to Ireland 2 weeks previously on an older ship and there was a huge difference and much better experience on the Estrid.

  • "12 January crossing"

    A delightful way to return to UK from Dublin. The ship was almost empty so huge empty comfortable space with a good breakfast to start the trip. A calm sea and mild, so lots of fresh air on deck. Only one problem. As a foot passenger I was told to check in at least an hour early. That was nonsense. I spent over an hour in a rather seedy departure lounge with no working coffee machine and about 6 other passengers. 5 minutes would have been ample.

  • "Very pleasant and efficient trip"

    I took the 1445 from Holyhead to Dublin yesterday. The departure and arrival were timely, and the experience in the Premier Lounge very acceptable. Good refreshments and a decent hot meal - which was chargeable but reasonable. My only suggestion would be the provision of some daily newspapers and/or magazines for customers' interest.

  • "Mixed "

    The actual ferry ride over to dublin was lovely. It was just a shame we nearly missed the ferry due to the boarding gate opening 30 mins after the initial opening time and not shutting until literally 5 minutes before the ferry was due to set sail. We entered the ferry and it set sail straight away. The hygge lounge was lovely. The ferry home was equally good. It was a shame that when we got back the captain took the best part of 2 hours to dock the ship without keeping passengers informed. This then meant that we were not able to get a taxi after and had to walk back to our hotel at 2am which was over a mile away. For a 24 hour port it was not manned very well and it took time to find a colleague to assist us. Would I travel by ferry again, yes and I'd definitely use the lounges but I'd make sure I was on an earlier ferry so it eliminates walking through a strange town at all hours in the morning..

  • "Excellent service"

    We had excellent service going over and coming back. As I needed to be near a lift they placed us right by the lifts. Coming back I had a fall and the staff were amazing. I was given a wheelchair and taken up to the hospital bay where they cleaned me up then as we were near to docking took us down to our car earlier to avoid the rush. Amazing service
