I was late for my check in during busy traffic in Germany and when I called Direct Ferries customer support line I was told that if I don't check in 2 h before departure time I will not be able to travel by ship.I was late for 1,5 hours to be exact my ship departure time on the confirmation was 4 pm and I arrived at 3;40 pm and everything was ok. I managed to check in and still had some time to wait until loading began.NOT sure of the competence of the Direct Ferries staff but it was not good experience when I called them on the way to ship in busy traffic thinking that my holiday and everything will be ruined and I was told there is nothing they can do,not even check the time of the departure of the ship,nothing,not even suggest any other phone numbers,who to call on the Stenna Line company,completely nothing. That was my experience.

"The most boring ship in the sea!"
This trip was meant to be a birthday treat for me as we would have normally driven from France all the way to Estonia but instead we thought we would enjoy a relaxing, fun time on a boat where we thought we would be entertained or at least be able to go shopping as and when we wanted. Instead our entertainment was a large tv that didnt have any English films or programmes (yet most people can understand our language), the shop was the smallest shop in the world that only opened for about 2 hours during the whole trip. And, when we were finally in the harbour at our destination, i mentioned to my husband that i would like to stand at the front window and watch the boat dock when i was suddenly ushered away from the dining area (front of boat)by a young lady telling me the restaurant was closed already! Grrr, it was clear i did not want anymore food as she was the one that saw us to our table at dinner, it was obvious we were enjoying the view so what harm were we doing? Spoilt the only bit of fun we had! One good thing, the food was tasty and portions varied depending on who was serving. Not a happy crew member! If i had to take this boat again, i would take many things to amuse myself. Oh, and we were not told beforehand that we would not be allowed back out to our car after the boat was moving and we had our pillows and blanket left out there, yet a lady was allowed to visit her dog on same deck that was in a cage! Hmmmmmmm, rules should be obeyed by Everyone, NOT just if your face fits!

The German town of Travemunde is located in Lubeck and lies at the mouth of the River Trave in Lubeck Bay. Founded in the 12th century by Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony, when he built a fortress to guard the mouth of the River Trave, the town was later improved by the Danes and became a town in 1317. The town is now the largest ferry port in Germany on the Baltic Sea and since the early 19th century it has been a popular tourist report. Popular attractions in the town include its lighthouse which dates back to 1539 and is the oldest along the German Baltic Sea coast. Another is the museum ship, the Flying P-Liner Passat, which is anchored in the mouth of the River Trave. Motorised vehicles are prohibited from using the town's main street, Vorderreihe, and the coastal promenade. There are buses that run to the town and the connection point is the train station. Riding a bike or walking is usually preferable as most of the streets are narrow and often get congested with cars driven by inexperienced drivers.
Ferry services from the port depart to Sweden, Finland, Russia, Latvia and Estonia.
