"Belfast _ Birkenhead"
Our recent return trip from Belfast was efficient and hassle-free. The staff at the docks and on board the boat were friendly and helpful and the crossing was smooth and the timings accurate. We paid extra for a place in the Stena Plus lounge with unlimited beverages, snacks and newspapers. As usual, the trip was a pleasurable experience.

"Smooth as silk"
Our ship arrived on time. Boarding was straightforward and we got to our 'accessibility' cabin. This was the only downside in our experience. It was a cabin with bunks! The accessible feature was the shower door, which had no lip to step over. We were able to swap for a family cabin with 2 beds on the floor. This was actually far more 'accessible'. The night crossing was exceptionally smooth and we arrived on time for our onward journey. The return journey was similar; we had to swap cabins again! Stena - please provide 2 beds on the floor of an accessible cabin.

"I enjoy this trip"
I'm sure many would look at the 8 hour timing & think again. However when you've a young family, the soft play, cinema, making friends with other kids & on-board children's entertainer lets you sit and relax most the journey.

"Relaxing way to travel"
This service was a very relaxing way to travel to northern England and with much less driving as opposed to the Scottish route from Belfast. The ships were clean and tne berths we booked for both journeys were comfortable. The staff were all polite and helpful and the food edible but a bit on the expensive side.

The ferry has everything you could want and the cabin was clean and spacious. Only disappointed that you had to leave your cabin at 5.30am and did not get back to the car till nearly 6.30am

"Loved the trip "
Loved the trip! Been along om the boats 3 times now and I can't fault the service. Lovely staff, comfy cabins and great sea views. It's such an experience and is great even with anxieties of sailing. The only thing I would say to improve is the kennels. I had to bring my cat and her kittens this trip and the kennel was cold, dark and noisy. I wouldnt pay £15 for one again but it did the job,they were safe and had water supplied so they were able to travel safely. Overall a lovely experience.
