  • "Trip"

    Ferry clean and tidy. Staff on board very helpful and kind. Everything excellent. 5 stars. Only flaw, the company website wasn't very clear and to amend my ticket I had to pay an extra €123 for a fee that should have been only €51. I had a problem with my motorbike in Lapland and I asked to amend the date 4 days in advance. On the website, it was clearly stated that to change a ticket i had to pay a fee. I understand that and paid to change the ticket. On my return, I went on the website and realised that it's not very clear how much the amendment fees are and their terms and conditions. The Direct Ferries agent i spoke to was very kind and initially told me that the fees would have been around €51 (she had to check with Stena). Later, she called me back and told me the fees was actually €72. The agent was sorry about the inconvenience. I believe Direct Ferries was not responsible for this. Therefore, i tried to contact Stena but after speaking to different agents, in 2 days, I gave up. I would like to point out that Direct Ferries service was precise and reliable. The agents very kind and helpful

  • "Kiel to Gotenburg and back on Stena auto-ferry services"

    Clean, comfortable, efficient services from check-in, to cafeteria, and departure. Elevator services and coordination in getting to car deck could be communicated better (those who can walk the stairs should be encouraged to do so)

  • "Nice ending for a long drive from Portugal to Sweden!"

    It was lovely to board and rest on Stena Scandinavia after a 3320 km drive from Portugal to Sweden. We booked a Skylight suite on deck 11 that had a fantastic service. We are very satisfied and will therefore do this again, as we live in both Portugal and Sweden. Thank you Stena Line for a nice trip!
