"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)

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

"From Goteborf to Kiel"
The journey was nice apart from the cabin because the air conditioner system was too noisy. The staff on board was ok.

"Nice transportation to the continent"
If you are going to bring the car to Germany there is only one way to do this. Take the Stena Line ferry from Gothenburg to Kiel. Easy embarking, even easier check-in. You are met by staff and crew at all serving places. The amenities on board are impecable. On time departuers and good service makes Stena Line a winner.

"Camper on Kiel - Gothenburg"
I came to the terminal and asked where I could get my tickets. The guy asked for booking number and printed two tickets and then all we had to do was get in the queue for boarding. We went to our cabin that was very good and we got a good nights sleep before we arrived to Gothenburg. The only thing I was missing was the possibility to get electricity for our camper. The alighting could've been organised better as well, it took a long time.

"A good start to an even better trip!"
We went with the mobilehome towards Stockholm and didn’t have any problems, not even during check-in which lasted longer because every driver had to undergo an alcohol testing. Passengers should however note that they have to shut off the gas supply, which will also be sealed. So refrigerator had to be turned off, which wasn’t too bad because nothing went bad. The duration time was correct (14h). It was a quiet night and in the evening, we had some food from the buffet table. Lovely clean cabins and everything is clearly marked. It is a relaxed way to start your trip and definitely worth repeating. Do it! Greetings Fam. Kuypers-Audenaert

"An excellent memory"
A very pleasant crossing with young childreb. They enjoyed the activities planned for them in the bar (drawing, dancing with the mascot). The quality of the catering was really good too. A vey caring and attentive staff. One suggestion; could you install some screen on the boat to indicate the position of the boat like on planes?

"Ferry ticket was sometimes not accepted "
Our ticket that we have booked with direct ferries under SPECIFIED, over-height (for bicycles on the roof), did not want to accept without hesitation the ferry company in Gothenburg. Stena Line demanded another 120, - € have for the bikes on the roof of our car, although they were shown separately on the ticket. That being said the crossing was fine.

"Economic and relaxing start to a European trip."
If driving to Europe from Stockholm I think it is the perfect solution to take the ship from Gothenburg to Kiel. One can start in the morning from Stockholm 9-10 o'clock arrive in Gothenburg with a good margin to find the terminal and drive on board. This then gives you a good night's sleep in pleasant surroundings on board with good food. You are still moving towards Europe and when you add up todays fuel costs, hotel, diner, and ferry or bridge costs, and the fact that you can relax it gives an economical and relaxing start to your trip.

"The pleasure of a ferry journey"
An excellent experience! We particularly enjoyed the prestations available during our inbound journey (Goteborg / Kiel), which weren't available during our outbound journey in June: distribution of a permanent ticket when leaving the hold to find the car more easily when disembarking, deck chairs on the upper deck, a splendid performance by a talented pianist who made the waiting time before the departure pleasant. Moreover, the confort of the cabin and of the berth enabled us to have a good rest, before carrying out with our trip. Just one remark: the cabin access cards don't work properly. You need to try several times.
