"Nice short cruise"
We had the captains cabin on the night ferry. Everything was lovely and we enjoyed the complimentary drinks and snacks. The bed was big nice and soft and the view out of the window was great. Only negative thing was the glass board right above the bed which was supposed to cover up the curtain track. It looked really scary and rather like a guillotine, so we decided to turn around and sleep with the heads at the foot end. Apart from that everything was great. The food in the inexpensive restaurant downstairs was good too and freshly made. We would always book again.

"A good way to travel"
This is a calm way to cross to Europe. Left on time, comfortable and quiet in the Stena Lounge, arrived on time. Good to have the option of daytime crossings so avoiding the need to have a cabin.
