  • "Great experience "

    Fantastic crew. Food in restaurant was great. Always a can do attitude with the crew. Clean cabins. Due to bad weather we left Cherbourg half hour early. But it was extremely bad weather and arrived in Rosslare twenty minutes late.

  • "Honest crew, happy passengers."

    My partner and I recently took a return trip from Rosslare to Cherbourg on the Stenaline Horizon. On the way over my girlfriend lost her expensive binoculars in the on board cinema, realising only when we had disembarked that they had fallen out of her bag in the dark cinema. We contacted Stena immediately by email to try and retrieve the binoculars and I am glad to say they were really very helpful and informed us that they had been found and were being stored safely for us to collect on our return journey. We would like to say a big thank you to the honest crew members who found the expensive equipment, we are very happy passengers.

  • "All went better than expected "

    This was our first time to travel by ferry. We got a great deal on Black Friday/sale price. Kids had a ball. Great freedom on the boat. Tiny kids area but they loved it and entertainment was provided. They used the cinema on way over and back (This wasn't free as I thought it would be) Food is ok.

  • "Irish holidays"

    Having travelled by boat for 50 years between France and Ireland, I have been on different ship companies ; however we have used Stena Line ever since it started on Cherbourg-Rosslare . It has improved every year and can now cope with quite a big number of passengers . There seems to be less livestock but certainly more truckers. bikers and families. It is quite pleasant with plenty of space , televisions and bars. And now Wi-Fi ! And it is VERY punctual in general.

  • "Cabin Noise and vibration"

    Dear Stena, It is many years since I traveled by ferry. In my younger years I used to pay only for a seat. This time I decided to treat myself to a cabin. Cherbourg to Cork 15th June 20:30. I cannot find my cabin number but i think it was on the 5th floor. I was one of the furthest back cabins. The noise and vibration was deafening during the night, even with ear plugs, and I could not sleep all night. I assume I was over the engine room. I only noticed the contrast when i went to breakfast in the front of the boat the next morning . there was virtually no sound or vibration. I was informed later that the most comfortable cabins in the boat from a noise perspective, is on the 6th floor and at the front of the boat. I could only recommend this ferry if there was a choice of cabin at booking.

  • "Ferry fine, book direct if possible. "

    People were nice. Staff great with current movies in ship theater. Some meal vouchers were useless as restaurants weren't open for lunch or dinner yet were part of the meal plan. Cruise line couldn't give credit and direct ferries difficult to work with.

  • "A good ship, amazing staff."

    The last time we did a journey on the ferry like this was with Irish Ferries. This trip was certainly better. The staff on this ship are incredibly friendly and keen to provide a great service. We travelled by motorcycle, the loading process was good, loader was helpful and did a good job of strapping our bike down. Our cabin was Grand. The only big gripe I had about this journey was how noisy our cabin was... we were in cabin 525 towards the aft of the ship and we could constantly hear the loud droning of the ships engine. It became unbearable after a while, we might as well have been downstairs ‘shovelling coal’. We couldn’t hear this anywhere else on the ship, so it must be down to the proximity to the engines. Maybe extra insulation, noise proofing in these cabins would help... hopefully next time we will be able to request a different cabin. Prices on board were fairly reasonable considering the scenario. The maritime. Phone network is absolutely extortionate, costing criminal rates... I know this has nothing to do with Stena Line but it might be nice to notify passengers about this to save them from any surprises on their next phone bill. Network providers do send a text but sometimes it doesn’t come through for a while. I know WiFi is via satellite and not capable of streaming but it would have been nice to be able to connect in our cabin. A good journey overall, what stood out the most was the great staff.
