  • "Rosslare ferry to Fishguard"

    Thoroughly pleasant and enjoyable trip. Staff extremely polite and courteous. The only drawback being one of the dinning / coffee areas on Deck 7 was closed for the entire journey. I suspect this was due to the Stena lines wishing to encourage passengers to utilise Deck 8 dining facilities. I believe the option should have been made to passengers. Despite this inconvenience a smooth and pleasant crossing.

  • "Wales to ireland"

    Price was great but unfortunately stena line boat at fishguard was in drydock so i was informed i had to go from pembroke dock instead. Bit of a inconveinance for me. Facilities inside where great etc although im assuming the irish ferry i was on was alot smaller than the stenaline itself. And unfortunately storm jake arrived at the time of departure. Other wise the travel and accomidation was good value for money. Will use this transport again.

  • "First ferry trip to Ireland"

    Staff were very efficient and helpful. I had a cabin and slept well in a comfortable bunk. I was woken by a member of staff who tapped on my door and waited for a response from me to make sure I was aware we were nearing our destination. I didn't hear the call to go down to the car deck so ended up going down with the truck drivers. My car was on its own because the other vehicles had already left the ferry. It could have been embarrassing for some but it didn't bother me - I just got in, started the engine and drove straight off!
