Have traveled with stena frequently and for many years. This morning I was due to sail from Belfast to Cairnryan on the 7.30am sailing. It does stat that check in does close at 7am, but as I've said I've been sailing with them for years and have regularly checked in at up to 7.15am. Well I arrive at security at... More

Took my usual trip on the ferry for my summer holiday. Good clean ferry with plenty of facilities. Food is over priced for what it is but they have a captive audience. Always baffled by the way they load and unload the ferry as this just causes frustration at the other end when cars are stuck behind buses and lorries.... More

Travelled with Stena Line on a 30 hour day trip ticket which brought the price down to a reasonable level (normal fares seem expensive) out from Cairnryan at 1130 and back the next evening at 1930. Very straightforward and relaxed from start to finish. Had coffee and cakes in the Barista lounge and later had lunch in the Taste restaurant... More

I often take the Stena Superfast V111 to Cairnryan, and I enjoy travelling onwards to Glasgow by coach as part of the Cross Channel service. The crossings are generally very pleasant and pass quickly. There are different passenger areas for relaxing and there is also the choice to upgrade to Stena Plus, which offers a private seating area, with complimentary... More

We have used this service for years will always go back to travelling to Ireland this way. Easy to book easy access on to ferry and very fast never any delays. They also give some good deals. Food is not bad either.

I've been using Stena line for some time now and have always have an enjoyable experience. Today we chose to take a return trip for my daughters birthday and the staff couldn't do enough for us, even treating her to a gift at the shop. You helped make her day extra special so thanks very much. As always, it's worth... More

I was traveling on the Stena Line boat from Belfast to Liverpool feeling a little hungover from a previous nights drinking and was looking for some food to cure me. So after exploring the vessel I looked no further than the "Metropolitan Grill". Here I proceeded to order the chefs favourite "The Met Grill". This had many components starting off... More

Not any where near as good as the HSS. Really poor food as regards choice & qualty....not even comparable as pub nosh. The Stena Plus lounge is spoilt by passengers who use phones & are very loud.....also children brought in & allowed to be noisy... Nothe children's fault but parents who just don't know or care. I feel sorry for... More
