"Kiel to Gotenburg and back on Stena auto-ferry services"
Clean, comfortable, efficient services from check-in, to cafeteria, and departure. Elevator services and coordination in getting to car deck could be communicated better (those who can walk the stairs should be encouraged to do so)

"A good start to an even better trip!"
We went with the mobilehome towards Stockholm and didn’t have any problems, not even during check-in which lasted longer because every driver had to undergo an alcohol testing. Passengers should however note that they have to shut off the gas supply, which will also be sealed. So refrigerator had to be turned off, which wasn’t too bad because nothing went bad. The duration time was correct (14h). It was a quiet night and in the evening, we had some food from the buffet table. Lovely clean cabins and everything is clearly marked. It is a relaxed way to start your trip and definitely worth repeating. Do it! Greetings Fam. Kuypers-Audenaert

"An excellent memory"
A very pleasant crossing with young childreb. They enjoyed the activities planned for them in the bar (drawing, dancing with the mascot). The quality of the catering was really good too. A vey caring and attentive staff. One suggestion; could you install some screen on the boat to indicate the position of the boat like on planes?

"met expectations "
Our expectation was exceeded slightly. Last year we were in the same category on a ferry in the south, but this time the whole settlement at check in and out was much easier and faster, the ship was clean and the staff nice.

"Ferry ticket was sometimes not accepted "
Our ticket that we have booked with direct ferries under SPECIFIED, over-height (for bicycles on the roof), did not want to accept without hesitation the ferry company in Gothenburg. Stena Line demanded another 120, - € have for the bikes on the roof of our car, although they were shown separately on the ticket. That being said the crossing was fine.

"Economic and relaxing start to a European trip."
If driving to Europe from Stockholm I think it is the perfect solution to take the ship from Gothenburg to Kiel. One can start in the morning from Stockholm 9-10 o'clock arrive in Gothenburg with a good margin to find the terminal and drive on board. This then gives you a good night's sleep in pleasant surroundings on board with good food. You are still moving towards Europe and when you add up todays fuel costs, hotel, diner, and ferry or bridge costs, and the fact that you can relax it gives an economical and relaxing start to your trip.

"The pleasure of a ferry journey"
An excellent experience! We particularly enjoyed the prestations available during our inbound journey (Goteborg / Kiel), which weren't available during our outbound journey in June: distribution of a permanent ticket when leaving the hold to find the car more easily when disembarking, deck chairs on the upper deck, a splendid performance by a talented pianist who made the waiting time before the departure pleasant. Moreover, the confort of the cabin and of the berth enabled us to have a good rest, before carrying out with our trip. Just one remark: the cabin access cards don't work properly. You need to try several times.
