This is my first overnight ferry from the British isles in over 20 years and I was pleasantly surprised of the quality on offer. Everything was excellent. Probably most surprising was how roomy the cabins were, I had an outside cabin which had a huge port hole offering great views of the North Sea. The food and drink on offer was of good quality and at a reasonable price with different restaurants offering different levels of service. Overall, I would 100% recommend.

"Good Crossing but unable to work on this crossing."

We had a very pleasant journey but still debate whether it is wiser to do this trip or to travel Dover Dunkirk, on this occasion I went this way so I could work on my laptop crossing over, however most of the trip had no internet. I checked with several other passengers and they had no internet either. Your computers had no or extremely slow internet connection and therefore it would have been better on this occasion to have travelled Dover Dunkirk arriving earlier and then getting my work done. On a whole though we enjoyed the crossing over.

we took our 10 and 8 yo boys for a weekend break with the car and found everything with stena line very good. an outside cabin for 4 was fine - good shower, kids happy on top bunks! ship had a casino and bar (both very quiet, such that the grumpy croupier seemed a bit upset to be disturbed from her game of patience) to relax in - pitcher of beer £10ish. upper deck cabin was perfect to read/relax/watch TV - needed an HDMI cable to connect a DVD - on the way back (2.30 hook of holland crossing), kids spotting porpoises, and playing some free basketball on deck in a caged court (£10 ball deposit only). food was cooked to order and pretty good. staff all friendly and helpful. i don't know how slick this trip is for car drivers in peak season, but in october, i can highly recommend this ferry service.

"Another smooth crossing"
Reviewed 22 November 2014 by Joerg
We have in recent years travelled several times across the channel on STENA line. Boarding and disembarkation has always gone smoothly and efficiently. I am particularly impressed with the facilities for dogs. The kennels are clean and comfortable and a CCTV "kennel channel" allows you to keep an eye on your pets from the cabin, as long as the lights are on. The cabin standard is better than that of many a hotel room I have stayed in in the UK. Public areas are light, modern and comfortable. The only really annoying feature is a loud wake up call 1 hour before disembarkation. (And I can't get "Don't worry be happy" out of my head for hours after!) The night is short as it is and I could do with another half hour of sleep. On the other hand I understand that allowing passengers to rely on their own alarms would lead to lots of late risers whose cars hold up the queues and whose cabins are cleared late.

Located in the English county of Essex, the town and port of Harwich lies on the North Sea coast, on the estuaries of the River Stour and River Orwell. Its proximity to the sea has resulted in the town having a well established, long history with both the military and merchant navy. In 1652 the town became a naval base and was heavily fortified with Harwich Redoubt, Beacon Hill Battery and Bath Side Battery. Containing many historic buildings, Harwich's old town has been declared a conservation area.
Harwich has also been home to some notable residents including Christopher Jones, the master and part owner of the Mayflower, the diarist Samuel Pepys was an MP for the town and Christopher Newport who founded Jamestown, Virginia, came from Harwich.

The Hook of Holland is a town located in the west of The Netherlands and lies at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg Ship Canal that flows to the north sea. The town, which derives its name from its geographical location in the south western corner of Holland, is of significant historical significance. Its location meant that it was used by the Germans for its strategies that required the use of a harbour. However, aside from this it is a beautiful town to visit and has some lovely beaches with one sandy beach stretching from the town to Scheveningen, almost 18 km away. Along this beach visitors will find sand dunes and some designated cycle routes which makes the area perfect to be explored by bicycle. Visitors should be warned though as one section of the beach is used by naturists!
The ferry terminal in the town is operated by Stena Line who operate a ferry service to Harwich, Essex in England. The terminal facilities include a convenience store and a cafe and bar. All ferries have a shop, currency exchange services, an information desk, video lounge and casino onboard.
