"Very helpful staff."

Reviewed 21 July 2014 by Charles

The ships that I have been on have always been clean,the staff helpful and the facilities excellent. On occasions I have asked to change travel times and have had nothing but understanding from the staff involved,and they have done their best to accomodate,

"Quiet and painless crossing"

Reviewed 21 July 2014 by Ian

We took the late night (23:30) ferry back to Belfast. As with the one going over at that time, it was almost empty with only a few dozen cars and as many lorries. Although there were places to eat we didn't bother at that time of night. The loading process is very efficient and we weren't squeezed in close to other vehicles. Disembarking was also quick and easy. There was plenty of sitting or sleeping space on the ship and with a 500 mile drive behind us we took time to rest. It appears that even at peak holiday times you can get a quiet trip if you avoid the early daytime routes. The downside is that fares in July are not cheap and the drive from England seems to go on forever on the Scottish roads but it is still a lot cheaper than taking the Liverpool boat for 8 hours unless you drive something with heavy fuel consumption. My tip is take the night sailings to get best prices and avoid the crowds and traffic.

Went from Birkenhead to Belfast on Stena line and cant fault the trip. cabin spotless and lots to do on board ship, Took the long route so we could relax before getting to Ireland and boy we did. Perfect way to start our Holiday and to end it. well done to all the crew and staff. We will be back.

"Hassle free trip "

Reviewed 01 July 2014 by Lorraine

We recently travelled from cairnryan to Belfast to visit family,everything from boarding to arrival was stress free and easy. We had upgraded just for the convenience of being able to amend the booking (due to working hours being changed and also was in middle of changing my car) you also get use of the stems lounge and priority boarding. This was a nice area to sit and relax and take advantage of free drinks and a few snacks. The whole of the boat was lovely with plenty of comfy seating so probably wouldn't book that if I sailed in future but overall happy with the journey and I'm a fussy traveller .
