We booked this trip back last minute and weren't disappointed with any of the facilities. Fast smooth crossing from Germany with a good clean ship. Would take this crossing again as we have done some other crossings which were longer.

"Dull trip for children"
The ferry between Trelleborg and Sassnitz has the advantage that it's a relatively short crossing. If you're travelling with children it could be a lot better though. The childrens area is minimal. If 8 children are there at the same time it's overcrowded. They have in addition to that made the shop bigger and therefore removed the tables around the play area. That makes it even harder for parents with small children to leave them there. I have older children and can sit further away, but would want to have more supervision over the children anyway. The quiz walk and the film that they show is exactly the same as when we travelled last year, which the children also point out. It can't be too expensive to have a few films to alternate between every week? You also have enough time to show two films during one crossing. A children's menu that is adjusted to children and the parents wallet would also be welcommed. Small cheap portions with vegetables, pasta (even without sauce!), chips or potatoes that you can combine however you want for example. Enough ice cream on the boat so that it won't run out when it's a hot day would also be expected. Stena Line, how hard could it be to take in some parents in a small group to come up with some ideas on how to put together an environment that promote playing for 4 hours so that the trip is relaxing for both parents and children? Parents who can relax more will surely shop more at the tax free shop. If you don't want families with children onboard you need to be more clear about it, as for now that is how you make us feel.

Located on the Jasmund Peninsular in Germany, the town of Sassnitz is a popular port town and coastal resort. It is also the gateway to the Jasmund National Park which is Germany's smallest national park by area. The park has unique chalk cliffs which inspired artists like Casper David Friedrich. The national park has had a national park centre at Konigsstuhl since 2004. There are two exhibitions which provide visitors with an insight into the natural world, the chalk, the Baltic Sea and the Beech forests of the park. Also of interest is the Fishing and Harbour Museum which catalogues the history of fishing on Rugen and the old Sassnitz harbour. In addition to excursion and fishing boats, in the harbour visitors can see the British submarine HMS Otus and the coastal sailing cargo boat, Annemarie, which was converted in 2007 into a passenger boat.
As a result of its good connections to the hinterland and its geographical proximity to Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic States, the Port of Sassnitz is an important hub for international passenger and goods traffic.
Trelleborg is Sweden's southernmost town and can trace its history back to the 13th century when the town was presented as a wedding gift to the Swedish Prince Valdemar from the Danish Royal Family. The town was later reclaimed by the Danes who ruled it until 1658 when it passed back to Swedish rule. today, the town is often visited by people who are travelling between Sweden and Germany because of the ferries that depart from the town's port to Rostock, Sassnitz and Lubeck and Travemunde. These ferry routes began to operate in 1897 with the Sassnitz line and the route to Travemunde established in 1962 and the route to the former East German city of Rostock established after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. The ferries that operate on these routes can carry both foot passengers and cars along with heavy trucks that are usually en route through Europe. In 1917, Lenin arrived by ferry from Sassnitz to Trelleborg on his way from exile back to Russia to lead the Revolution.
