  • "Ireland break"

    This was the best ferry trip I have taken. From arriving at the terminal the experience was seamless and went without a hitch. Once there a quick check of my confirmation details was taken, an hour later we were driving on board. The food was extremely reasonably priced unlike other ferry operators who rip you off. Toilets and facilities were great. All staff were lovely and very helpful the WIFI was spot on and free. Will certainly use again. RECOMMENDED

  • "A very pleasant trip."

    This was our first experience of travelling with Stena Line and we were most impressed with the speed and efficiency of boarding, the cleanliness of the ferry and the standard of the food. The steep ramp on disembarking at CaIrn Ryan was hair raising but we managed!

    We paid exra for the Plus Lounge and did not go into the passenger restaurant. The Lounge staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was quiet and the snacks more than adequate. The lounge was clean. Consequently, we enjoyed our crossing.

  • "Belfast Cairnryan route"

    Spend the extra and upgrade to Priority . Not only do you get the option to change/cancel the booking up to 2 hours before sailing BUT more importantly you get priority loading and disembarkation as well as access to the Stena Plus lounge. This lounge is a god send if you are travelling without kids and want to avoid them.

    As this was our first trip abroad on a ferry, we weren't sure what to expect. Everything exceeded expectations. From the amenities to the crew,it was great. The captain even apologized for a slight delay when they had to switch the engine over,and even then we still arrived on time!

    Fantastic experience from booking to journey. Found booking very easy to do. Very straightforward system once we arrived at port and very comfortable travel experience with the added benefit of complimentary refreshments on board and great knowing that our car was just below us and we were able to just drive off and enjoy the rest if our holiday.
