  • "Beautiful and relaxing ferry"

    Not sure why I have not taken the ferry before. It was fast, efficient and on time embarking/disembarking. The ferry was extremely clean and very quiet. I had booked into the recliner lounge which was very quiet, cosy and perfect for doing work. However, there was not really any need as the rest of the book had ample space and was comfortable and quiet too. Definately will travel this way again even thou it took longer than a flight for the same route.

  • "Great facilities "

    Lovely ship. Lots for kids to do (2 movie rooms, play areas, gaming area). Very friendly staff. Only one meal provided for an 8 hour sailing (travelled over with another company and had 3 meals). Food was average and prices to purchase other meals very overpriced.

  • "Birkenhead to Belfast August 2022"

    We travelled overnight Birkenhead to Belfast and returned on the daytime ferry. The ferries were run very efficiently, clean, and plenty of space for passengers. We booked recliner chairs both ways - my only criticism is that they were not very comfortable, and had no adjustment mainly for the feet/legs. Otherwise the trips were perfect and I would certainly travel with Stena again..

  • "Very enjoyable tips Outward and Return"

    Travelled outward on Stena Edda and Return leg on Stena Embla, both ships well organised and well equipped regarding lounges and passenger areas. Easy access to deck for fresh air and decent food in the Taste restaurants. Some of the facilities on both ships get a lot of activity so some light maintenance is required, other than that no complaints

  • "Get your booking right first time."

    The shipping line was excellent, but Direct Ferries not so much, tried to alter booking, but couldn't alter and no phone contact made it impossible to make a required change, after several attempts managed but the wanted a further full price payment to accept the change.

  • "Excellent Service"

    From arriving and the staff having all our documentation ready, due number plate recognition, this seemed to be a professional company. We were not disappointed. Cabin for return journey was excellent. Only slight problem was that most of the active facilities closed within a short time of sailing.

  • "Trip to Belfast "

    This is the first time I've been on a ferry in many years and I was absolutely shocked how good Stena ferries are. I booked the private lounge as well as a meal and this was fantastic. The ship is really modern with plenty of facilities and immaculately clean. As a business person I found the Internet slow, but apart from that the experience and crossing was faultless. I'll only travel with Stena from now on and can't recommend them highly enough.

  • "Birkenhead to Belfast Ferry Trip August 2022"

    The boat was well equipped with places to sit and lounge about as the journey time was 8 hours. We preferred the 10.30am crossing times. There was a restaurant, bar, two cinema lounges showing films, a shop, a children's soft play area, some video gaming machines, toilets and you were able to walk on deck which was nice when the weather is good. The journey itself was pleasant and the water was not too choppy as I do not have good sea legs. Optional extras included a separate lounge area, better lounge seats or you could pay for a cabin. Prices for more comfortable seats started at £18 for private lounge area £20 and cabins at £30. However, we found there were plenty of options/places to sit comfortably without paying out more. The checking in process was easy and having the advantage of storing large cases (or cases you did not need anything from on the journey) on a van which was driven on the boat was very convenient as it meant that you did not need to carry a lot of luggage around with you on the ship. As we travelled as foot passengers we were driven on a bus to the ship which again was very handy. Take cash with you as although you can use a debit card if the Wi-Fi is not working then the only payment method available is cash. I would definitely travel with this company again.
