"A very comfortable trip"
Even though I arrived at Hook of Holland too late to catch the ferry that I should have taken (I started from Sweden), the staff at the Stena Lines office helped me to rebook, and allocated me a cabin. The loading went smoothly and then I was able to go directly to the restaurant and have a relaxing dinner. Breakfast was also good and set me up for the next part of the journey to North Wales (another 350 miles). Very good service all round.

"Comfortable, but a little expensive "
The crossing was good and the ship is very comfortable but cannot understand why items in the shop and Restaurant has to be so expensive. When comparing costs with other Stena Line ferries....i.e. Travelumnde to Ventspils. Crew are really very friendly and so very helpful and approachable.
