"Ferry to France"
One of the most pleasant crossings I have made made in all my years travelling to the Continent. The service and food was excellent compared to all other crossings I have made from Ireland.

"The best so far"
My wife and I travelled on the Stena Horizon in mid May 2015, return - Cherbourg/Rosslare. We have used most of the cross channel carriers over the years so have a broad experience. We were absolutely delighted to discover that not only was the Stena Horizon spotlessly clean and the crew really helpful and friendly the food available was excellent. We could not praise Stena Lines more highly.

"Trip Rosslare-Cherbourg Oct 28th 2014 Stena Horizon"
Good day, Have to praise the Stena Line efficiency and the punctuality ot the service, the in house services, bars, boutique etc, all properly managed. Like on my last review for the onward journey, the cabin toilet walls beside the WC bowl do not appear to be cleaned and sanitized properly so have a typical unpleasant smell, may be this is due by the short time between the trips but better housekeeping supervision should instruct the staff of how to do things properly.

Buon giorno, Sono un utente stagionato, sono piu di 30anni che mi reco inIrlanda usando varie routes. Il servizio e la gestione e' stato impeccabile come da standard di una compagnia come Stena che conosco benissimo tramite la mia professione. Solo un piccolo appunto, il bagno aveva un odore di urina,tipico di un locale igienico pulito superficialmente e non supervisionato a dovere, piccola cosa ma importante. Cord.Saluti F.Cenerini

"Good, but not worth paying the additional charge for reclining seats."
The ship and the staff are very good. Everyone was very friendly. The only bad thing is that I paid an extra costs for a recliner seats and then they all were recliners.

"Travel without rest"
We expected rest bad, because of having failed to book a cabin option on time and be a crossing of 19 hours, but we didn't expect it was too bad. We accommodated on a sofa next to the bar, which is in principle the same point where information staff told us that we would be accommodated! BIG MISTAKE!. The bar remained open until about four in the morning, serving wine and pints of beer everywhere to the Irish people willing to not sleep all night, but they enjoyed and we suffered their enjoy. They drank wine, beer, without limit even falling over us because of how badly they were ... singing, one after another, typical and non typical Irish songs, with guitar and without guitar ... Finally, the party lasted until seven o'clock in the morning, and nobody could stop such party and alcohol (the staff tried it several times, but it was impossible, since the alcohol level of some of them). About 4 in the morning we were offered to sleep on the cinema room, but only until nine o'clock, but did not ,otherwise we will lost the precious sofa to have some rest while others sleeping off their drunkenness. In short,a travel to forget.

"Travelling conditions for cars."
I didn't appreciated for my car to be on the deck exposed to the sea spray. When we arrived, it was covered in salt. I still had a long journey, but I had to find a garage to clean it.

An excellent journey, the 16 hours of the crossing are flying by quickly. The food at the restaurant is very good and affordable as well. I really recommend it!

"A TRIP TO IRELAND"
We were 4 people travelling from Cherbourg to Rosslare and back aboard the Stena Horizon. There is nothing to report, except 3 pillows instead of 4 in the cabin during the inbound journey. No toilet paper (thankfully we had some in our bags). No hangers. However, there were bed linen, towels and blankets. We didn't try the food except the bar and the breakfast which are decent. The schedule is respected. Another issue (that didn't concern us personnally): some passengers didn't seem able to get a cabin even though the ferry was far from being full.

The crew is very nice. It's a shame that they don't speak any French aboard crossings between Ireland and France. We were also promised wifi, but it's not available on the boat. Because of this, I nearly missed my appointment. I had to use my phone (which is very expensive). I was also surprised with the water leak in the snack room.
