"Compliments to Stena Line"
Reviewed 06 March 2015 by Anonymous
Friends cringe at the thought of an 8hr crossing. However, once on board (this was speedy and efficient) you are greeted by happy, welcoming staff and can settle in to a clean, warm, comfy,pleasant crossing. You can sleep, eat, play board games, catch up with e-mails, walk about or be entertained in the cinema, which all helps to make the time pass quickly. Personally as a driver, I find it very relaxing after a hectic pre-run to my trip I know I can switch off for a whole 8 hours and arrive refreshed to continue my journey. I travelled with young grandchildren who were made more than welcome by the staff.

The facilities on board are ok. Catering is on the pricey side. cleanliness was of a high standard and even though it was a day sailing we did have a cabin which was clean tidy comfortable. Very competent staff and the ship was on time. I just feel that the fare is a bit steep. We only used this way this time because we were seeing friends first.

Great trip - we arrived at port early and were able to board and get settled in our cabins. Food on board was great - we had dinner and back in cabins to settle for the night all by the time the ferry was pulling out of the port. Would def recommend to others.

The town of Birkenhead is located on the Wirral Peninsular, in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral in Merseyside, in the north west of England. The town lies on the western shores of the River Mersey, opposite the city of Liverpool. The town's history has strong links with shipbuilding and as being a major sea port. In the city visitors will find one of the first, if not the first, publicly funded parks in Britain which was designed in 1843 by Sir Joseph Paxton. Interesting landmarks in the town include Bidston Windmill which is located on a ridge behind the town, Flaybrick Watertower, Flaybrick Memorial Gardens and Birkenhead Priory & St. Mary's Tower, St. James' Church and St. Werburgh's Roman Catholic Church.
Birkenhead's network of docks is actually part of the Port of Liverpool and are operated by the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company. The Twelve Quays Ferry Terminal is where passenger and freight services to Dublin in Ireland, and Belfast in Northern Ireland dock. The Mersey Ferry at Woodside runs a passenger service across the River Mersey to Liverpool. During winter months, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company operates a service from Birkenhead to Douglas, the Isle of Man.
The city of Belfast lies at the mouth of the River Lagan where it becomes a deep and sheltered logh and is located in County Antrim, although parts of East and South Belfast are actually located in County Down. Belfast is Northern Ireland's capital city and is surrounded by mountains that combine to create a specific climate which is beneficial to horticulture.
Belfast is quite a green city and offers visitors plenty of parkland and forest parks to explore from Cave Hill Country Park and Lagan Valley Regional Park to the Victorian Botanic Gardens in the heart of the city. From an architectural perspective Belfast has some fine buildings including the Edwardian City Hall and the modern Waterfront Hall. Many of the city's Victorian landmarks, including the main Lanyon Building at Queen's University Belfast and the Linenhall Library, were designed by Sir Charles Lanyon. In response to increases in the number of visitors to the city, Belfast's city council created a number of cultural quarters. The Cathedral Quarter, taken from St Anne's Cathedral, has taken on the responsibility of being the city's main cultural area and hosts an annual visual and performing arts festival.
From the city's port, ferry services depart to Cairnryan in Scotland, Liverpool in England and to Douglas on the Isle of Man.
