  • "Excellent experience."

    Having not been to Ireland for some 30 years I was impressed by the improvement in the comfort, accommodation and catering standard on board ship. Booked a cabin on the night return trip and slept very well. No complaints at all. Thoroughly recommended by me as the best and shortest sea route to Ireland.

  • " Converted"

    Have never been a good sailor so was apprehensive about my trip to Rosslare. What a revelation! The crossing was smooth and the ship was lovely. As we were in the Senate Lounge the food and facilities were excellent - staff charing and polite. Well done.

  • "Recent trip"

    The friendly and professional services provided on my recent trip to and from Fishguard/Rosslare were pleasantly welcome. It's a pity shore staff before accessing ship at Fishguard aren't blessed with the same high standards as the Stenna Line. I very much doubt if I will travel this route ever again.

    On time; very comfortable in the Stena Plus lounge where snacks excellent. Would have been even better if "sleeping beauties" hadn't snored quite so loudly preventing the silent majority from relaxing in peace. Shop expensive compared with High Street.

    The ease of getting on or off by car was great. There was no waiting around really. Would have nice to have more food options...and the film was left on to play twice. Another film or something could have been put on.

    We had a really choppy and long crossing on the way to Rosslare but the staff stayed professional and helpful. You could see that the long crossing would make life difficult for them but they did not show any irritation. I was so impressed with the attitude and would definitely use Stena again.

  • "Stena Europe "

    Even though she is a old ferry, but she is still a popular ferry to travel on. The facilities are very good on her. When Stena line do eventually replace her. May her replacement be just as good. I believe Fishguard to Rosslare is very important for those who wish to travel to Ireland from the south of the UK

  • "Late night travel"

    We booked on the 2.30 pm crossing as there was no availability in the day on the date we wanted to travel. We didn't have a cabin and intended to rest in the lounge. It was OK but we noticed that more seasoned travellers had taken sleeping bags and pillows and had found themselves quiet areas of floor to stretch out on. Not an ideal way to go, but if you have to, take a tip from them and be as comfortable as you can. Loading and unloading were efficient.

  • "Efficient and comfortable service with priority boarding"

    We chose the upgrade to priority boarding because being August I thought it was likely to be a busy time of year and I wanted to make sure we had comfortable seats. As it happens, the ship did not feel crowded. However the upgrade was worth it. We were one of the first cars on and off and the special lounge was very comfortable. It had a great view through massive windows in the bows of the ship. Free food and drink was available throughout including wine and smoked salmon which was all very tasty and fresh. Due to scheduling, we had to return on the other ferry line which was nowhere near as good.
