  • "Pleasant crossing"

    Crossings both ways were itinerary although on the return jouney we had to park on a serious slope and on a bend at the bow end and I was concerned for the safety of the car. Ship was good with all facilities clean. Staff helpful. Would use this line again

  • "Smooth trip in rough seas"

    Was very impressed by the service on board, and the orderly way the cars are boarded onto, and off the ferry. My wife and I chose the Stena plus lounge, and it was well worth the extra we paid for this. The only negative aspect of our trip, was that my wife is disabled, and their is no consideration for disabled persons at the departing terminal. If you put your vehicle in the correct line, then it can be a substantial distance to the toilets/food outlet, for someone who is disabled. I parked near the terminal toilets, and we then could not get into line 1, when boarding commenced, without difficulty. Also, for first time users like myself, the line numbers are not shown clearly enough. I did not know which was line 1, until I walked up to the front of the queue. The numbers should be displayed overhead as well to make them easier to identify. The staff onboard were great in providing assistance to my wife.
