The Stena Superfast X is a recent addition to the Stena Line family on the Irish Sea. Previously known as Dieppe Seaways operating on the English channel, the Stena Superfast X went through a full refit to modernise and upgrade all aspects of the ferry before being put back into service for its capacity of 1200 passengers to enjoy. Spread across 10 decks, the onboard facilities are of a high standard and include 2 cinemas, coffee house, bar and grill, shopping centre, deluxe cabin accommodation, a premium lounge, a family lounge complete with children’s play area and x-box stations, plus much more.
Onboard you will find two types of cabins - Comfort Class and Captain Class. All cabins are fully equipped with a desk area, en-suite facilities with a shower and are ‘sea view’. If you don’t wish to book a cabin selected seating is available thought out the vessel.
Indulge in a delicious meal at the Metropolitan Grill, the extensive menu offers a range of tasty hot food, such as gourmet burgers, the signature dish of fish and chips or lighter snack options such as jacket potatoes with a filling of your choice. A children’s menu is also available.
If you fancy a drink onboard head to the Metropolitan Bar to relax and watch the big screen TV, whilst having any one of the range of continental beers and wines offered.
To experience even higher levels of luxury you can upgrade to the Stena Plus service, which includes express boarding and disembarkation, gains you access to the Stena Plus Lounge which is now four times bigger than any other lounge they have offered before, complimentary drinks, snacks, newspapers, comfy seating and waiter service.
There is also Wi-Fi available through the ship.
Stena Superfast X is a wheelchair friendly vessel, with two berth outside cabins made for easy access for standard and motorised wheelchairs and accessible lifts to and from the car decks.

"Stena Plus Lounge"
As we were travelling to Ireland for our son's wedding I thought we'd book the Stena Plus Lounge for a bit of extra comfort! It was lovely, much quieter, more space, complimentary drinks and snacks, and generally much more comfortable. We were able to doze in peace! Well worth the extra. Will always travel this way in future - whatever we're going for!

I hadn't travelled with Arena Line before and now I will try to more often. Friendly staff, spacious parking spaces, great catering facilities and the toilets were frequent and clean and you didn't dread visiting the bathroom!!

Booking was a dream. Did it in 2 mins flat. We found boarding and exiiting both ways very easy an efficient. Both the journeys were comfortable and well managed. Would use this method again.

"Return trip to Ireland"
I had a very pleasant journey to Ireland and an excellent return trip on which I booked a cabin for a late night/early morning crossing. It was a comfortable crossing in which I was able to shower, sleep for three hours and make use of the tea/coffee - making facilities on waking.

"Customer Service 5☆"
The dock staff at Holyhead were brilliant as we had 2 carbon fibre boats on the roof (each overhang front & back of car by 1m), each worth morexthan the car. The staff picked us out & suggested we might be safer in the 'upstairs' parking to avoid damage & even told a campervan driver off for trying to cut us up ☺ Dock staff at Dublin...hmm well...cant have it all. Also staff in the retail area of Stena X were extremely pleasant.

"Journey from Wales to Dublin"
My boyfriend and I recently went on vacation to the UK and Ireland. We came across direct ferries website when searching of alternatives to flying from Wales to Ireland. I am so glad that we did. This ferry ride was peaceful, had everything anyone could possibly need, and it was a quick ride! We were both very pleased with our choice.

The whole family enjoyed the experience including the train ride from Chester to Holyhead, staying at the Travelodge and meeting some really friendly in the local pub in Holyhead. The crossing itself was most enjoyable and a memorable part of our holiday.
