    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)

  • "Apart From The Price"

    This was a good experience, the ship was on time, clean, comfortable & friendly. The food was great, steak I had was first rate as was the buffet breakfast. I was traveling with a car & caravan it was all good but I think the price was too high.

  • "Excellent help!"

    I had injured myself during our holiday in Sweden and I was not looking forward to the return journey. On check-in, with a red disabled card, priority treatment, parked in front of lift, received a wheelchair 'upstairs' and had an excellent journey. Was escorted to our car on disembarkation in Kiel. Excellent service and nothing but praise for Stena!!

  • "Then who needs a title? "

    So, I was right all along felt comfortable on this ship. The rooms were small but perfectly adequate, well prepared and well air conditioned. The sanitary facilities were very good and clean. Initially I had problems with opening the boarding pass at the room, the card reader was perhaps not quite right or something. you then comes there with his hands full of luggage to the door and nothing works ....... of staff in the first instance no trace. But after some try the castle then went on .... On the outward journey with Fjord Line I did not have such problems. Otherwise, everything great ..... and the prices, well just Scandinavian.

    Very clean cab, only the window (Captains Fiew) should be clean in order to view. The dinner a la carte was very good. The air conditioning in the restaurant was unfortunately so we had to pull something cold. Overall, a very comfortable and pleasant voyage.

  • "Review"

    Even better than it used to be. We took this ferry every year for 10 years in the 80's and 90's. However, I hadn't taken it for 10 years. I was very impressed with the changes. The boarding is no longer stressfull. There's more space for the car. The size of the bed is good. The quality of the buffet is better.

  • "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.

  • "recommendable "

    Almost everything o.k. The plan was, as always, the money exchange on board .... unfortunately no longer possible. On board itself is not a problem, since euro and credit card possible. But after leaving the ship in Gothenburg, we first had to find a bank and also a car parking which cost us almost an hour ......

  • "What a journey!"

    This was my first trip with this type of ferry, at least on a long trip, and overnight, nonetheless. My anxiety was redundant, everything was well organised I could easily navigate my way to the cabin and then back to my car. Looking forward to my next trip.
