"Stena Lagan - Good Trip"
Reviewed 24 February 2015 by Dennis
I travelled Belfast-Liverpool on a Tuesday. I paid for the Stena Lounge facilities, but needn't have bothered, because there were very few passengers, though it might well have been a different story if the ship had been busy. Check-in was painless, the trip was fine, the cabin was clean, the food was good, the staff were good. The only (very minor) criticism was that it seemed to take a long time to start disembarking the 20 or so cars on the top deck after we had docked in Liverpool, but no doubt there was a good reason for this. I would happily take the same crossing again.

My son, grandson and I crossed to Birkenhead on a recent Friday night and returned to Belfast overnight on Saturday. We had a cabin both ways.We found facilities on board - restuarant/bar to be first class, and enjoyed relaxing in a comfortable lounge. Cabins are small but adequate. Staff were helpful as and when required.

For many years - holidays, university and friends - we have chosen Stena for its ease of booking, friendliness, cleanliness and dependability. Recently, on Saturday, November 22 my wife and I travelled from Belfast to Birkenhead, and returned home on Sunday, 30th. My wife suffers from Alzheimer's, and for a little more privacy I had booked us into the Super Lounge for both trips on which the female attendant, Liza, quickly and with considerable skill assessed our slightly difficult situation. She made my wife feel very much at home, which helped me to relax, and with the help of the male attendant gave us both the best possible attention. This made our trips very memorable, and in spite of a problem with one engine on the outgoing journey, it was a wonderful reflection on the excellent service which we have come to expect from, and why we will always choose Stena.

"To Birkenhead and back again."

I travelled Friday overnight to Birkenhead.This was the first time I had used this company and hadn't used a ferry for over ten years. I purchased a seat in the lounge.I later wished that I had booked a berth for the trip as I was travelling to London the following day.The lounge was comfortable and the steward attentive and courteous.I found the food good.The trip was pleasant which was broken up by watching a free film show.Unfortunately I was parked on the upper deck at the front and ended up being the second to last car off the ferry,but only one person can be first off. I caught the Thursday 10.20 ferry back to Belfast. Once again I purchased a ticket for the lounge. Although this was a different ship I found that the standards were the same. I will be using this ferry company again.

The city of Belfast, in Northern Ireland is the provinces capital city and is located in County Antrim, although parts of the city are located in County Down. The city has a long tradition in the production of Irish linen production, tobacco production, rope making and shipbuilding. In fact, the city's main shipbuilder, Harland and Wolf, is famously, or infamously, known for building the RMS Titanic. Modern day Belfast is a main centre for commerce, the arts, higher education, law, business and or course, tourism.
Belfast's large port is a main hub in the import and export of goods and for passenger ferry services. There is a regular crossing to Cairnryan in Scotland with a crossing time of around 2 hours and 15 minutes by conventional ferry. There is also a regular ferry service to Liverpool in the north west of England and seasonal services to Douglas on the Isle of Man operated by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.
The town of Birkenhead is located on the Wirral Peninsular, on the west bank of the River Mersey estuary, in the north west of England and is opposite the city of Liverpool. The sea has played an important part in the town's history through its port and its tradition in shipbuilding. The town's design, which was influenced by William Laird and his son John, is similar to that of Edinburgh New Town's with sections of Birkenhead laid out in a grid pattern. The grid was centred around Hamilton Square and was started in 1826 and has the most Grade I listed buildings surrounding it than any other square in England after Trafalgar Square in London. Interesting attractions in the town include the Grade I listed Town Hall, the Queensway Tunnel Main Entrance and the Woodside Ferry Terminal. Scenes from the movie Chariots of Fire were filmed at Woodside and were meant to be a representation of Dover in the 1920's.
Ferry services operating from the port depart to Dublin in Ireland, Belfast in Northern Ireland and across the Mersey Estuary to Liverpool.
