  • "Professional and comfortable service"

    Staff very professional and facilities comfortable. I took a night ferry, the weather was windy so we arrived an hour late. This wasnt a,problem but having woken early for breakfast i was peeved to find the restaurant wasnt open for an hour due to the late arrival. I might have missed an announcement but the notice on the restaurant hadnt been changed to inform passengers.

    First time travelling on this route with motorhome. Very easy, great service from checking in to desembarking. Cannot really comment on quality of carering for us, however everyone using the service seemed happy. Tea/coffee was great but not cheap.

  • "Rather Good"

    Stena and the Hollandica and Britannica made the 7 hour crossing much less of a chore than I was expecting. Always somewhere to sit, the food was of good quality and reasonable price given the captive audience and embarking and disembarking were a breeze, well done Stena... I will be back!

  • "European Road Trip "

    Our trip started and finished by sailing on the Stena ferry, Harwich to Hook of Holland and back. The Stena experience was excellent and a lot cheaper than our other options. We will definitely be travelling that route again.

  • "Relaxing trip"

    I enjoy my travels with you. I always book a cabin to be able to sleep and a place to leave my things when having a wander.  One of the suggestions I have is to show UK time and European time on board. As most of our time pieces are WiFi controlled, you are never sure when they’ve adjusted.  Another would be to have free drinking water available. I took some with me, but could only find bottles in the restaurant, which I found rather expensive and most of the food was fatty food.  I still like travelling with Stena, will just be better prepared next time.

    Loved the Ferry. Big and spacious . Very comfortable seating . Duty free shop well stocked . Food was good .a 100 times better than sitting in an airplane and no fuss no muss loading the cars on or off . Would recommend this mode of travel if you have time to sit and enjoy the ride.

  • "Never again. Direct ferries, not Stena who were helpful"

    Worst company I have ever had the misfortune to deal with. No customer service, now no telephone service at all. Message on answering machine says free to change on website, but charged 75.00 anyway to change sailing due to coved. Now can’t make return boat and can’t contact by phone so lost money. Terrible experience all round.
