First time using Stena and was really impressed. The staff on board were friendly and helpful. We booked the lounge plus and was grateful we did. The only negative in my view, was the cost of food in the dining room. It was a bit excessive. Other than that, had a great trip to and from Holland.

"Simple steady and a break from driving."
Its a long way so really consider a sea view cabin. Nice clean spacious, amazing shower with a tv. However, if you have kids, take a computer load it up with films when you go and they will be entertained but you will really be glad you got a cabin. Great ship, really nice.

"enjoyable way to get to the Netherlands"
On a business trip to the Netherlands; I chose the ferry rather than Eurotunnel and the drive through Belgium as it saves at least 4 hours driving , not counting the traffic jams around Antwerp - able to board early, good meal, comfortable cabin, no noise and off the ferry in the Hook - perfect, but maybe more expensive, even taking into account the probable necessity for a hotel doing it the long way round.
