"a great service"
8 hours seems a long time for the crossing but thanks to great on board facilities and very friendly and professional staff, the time went quickly and I was well enough refreshed on arrival to do a full day's work

The free wifi has emails, Facebook etc all blocked and what is available is so slow it is useless. My sons were very unhappy! The complimentary fruit bowl in our cabin was 2 cheap versions of fruit winders which were awful. The cups of tea in the cafe were overpriced but you could get a half price second cup with your receipt, the first cup was so awful we took one sip and left it. On the positive side our comfort room was very clean with comfortable beds and the restaurant food and service were very good. We had an overnight cabin one way and a cabin for our daytime return, without our cabin to relax in it would have been awful sitting in the cafe or restaurant for 8 hours as there is nothing to do (why people need wifi that works) and the chairs are not very comfortable for long periods of time.

"Well Done! "
Thanks for the great journey! Your ferry was one of my favorite things about my vacation! I enjoyed every minute on board. We had food from the cafe. It was pretty good but I'm not sure how the restaurant was. Thanks again!

"The best way by far by car to NI"
On the way out I sailed overnight. I had a great meal which was good value and can't say much about the rest of the trip as I slept through it in a very comfortable cabin. On the way back I booked the Stenna Plus lounge. Again excellent value offering comfort and relaxation in equal measure. I would not hesitate to book this crossing again.

It was such a pleasant and easy way to travel, apart from getting lost in Liverpool lol. Had a cabin which was brilliant which I went straight into and watched TV. Very comfortable night sleep, had shower and drove off. Both ways perfect except for one blip on return journey where the seat was missing from the cabin. But otherwise no complaints at all.

"Helpful staff and crew. "
I am a disabled traveller and walk with a crutch. I informed Stenna line of this when booking and they gave me priority a boarding pass which meant that I was able to park on board the ship next to the lift / escalator which makes my journey much easier and less stressful. I also reserved a cabin for the overnight crossing and was initially allocated one up some stairs but passenger services were very helpful and swapped the cabin for a more accessible one that avoided the need to use stairs even though the ship was full that particular night.
