Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Due to the short crossing, cabin accommodation is not available on the Superfast VII however reserved seating is available in the Stena Plus Lounge. Stena Plus offers a range of comfortable leather seating including sofas and sofa chairs on two levels, so you can find the area which is just right for you.

In addition to seating, passengers who travel in the luxurious Stena Plus lounge can enjoy waiter service and choose from a premium menu which includes a range of speciality seafood dishes and old favourites. So you can simply relax in your seats and order meals at your leisure.

  • "A long weekend, motorcycling in Ireland."

    A most enjoyable trip. The crossings were both slick, and on time. The ports' staff and those on the ferries were excellent. My motorcycle was well cared for, and I am happy to recommend Stena to any other motorcyclists.

  • "Stenna line every time."

    We just want to thank Stenna Line ferries for getting us safely to Northern Ireland and back. We travelled from Cairnryan to Belfast and back. Everything went like clockwork totally hassle free. Smooth crossings both journeys. Very comfortable and I have to say the chicken dinners are delicious. Looking forward to booking with you again on our next trip.

    Helpful staff. Reliable timekeeping. Pleasant journey. Always better than flying. However always find their website difficult to use and end up using direct ferries site. It should not be this way.

    I arrived early for departure and was very happy with the speed and efficiency of the service. The crossing was smooth and the seating in the Stena Plus Lounge was very comfortable. Access to my car for disembarkation was trouble free and all in all I was totally satisfied with my experience on the Stena Superfast VII ferry.

  • "Short and sweet "

    After a long drive, it was a welcome break to be able to unwind in the room and have a short nap. Not that the babies allowed it, but great to lie down in bed for 2 h. Staff was very helpful and made the whole thing very straight forward.
