"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!

Really great way to get to Northern Ireland. The staff are so polite and helpful. The food is fine and reasonably priced. The cabins are clean and the whole experience made us feel on holiday as soon as we boarded.

"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.

We were very impressed with the whole process. Getting on and off the ferry went smoothly. We had a delay coming home but we could sleep through so it didn't affect us. We had booked a cabin on both journeys and again standards were excellent. Staff were very friendly and efficient. We had to change our plans and again that was an easy process. I have recommended this to friends since returning home. Book early though to keep the cost down.

Very good service, staff are very helpful because the sailing was longer than usual we were giving a free cabin without asking a £10 voucher and 50% off our next booking..

My wife and I went over to Liverpool from Belfast to pick up some of our sons belongings as he is moving back to NI. We were very happy with the friendliness of the crew, the standard of food and the sleeping accommodation - it was the same on the way back - from the time we got on the ferry we were able to relax and enjoy the experience. We rarely travel by Ferry now, usually choosing to fly to where we want to holiday - but this has made us think again - we certainly would look forward to travelling with you in the future.

"Belfast Liverpool "
I sent my mega independent 17 year old daughter back to equestrian school, with a beat up mini, having passed her driving test 3 days before taking it on your ferry. Needless to say I was panicking about how she would manage on off ferry etc but your staff were superb, and cared for her, accommodating her all the way. I paid for lounge area to allow her to sleep and she said that food, sofa, blanket etc were lovely. Brilliant journey thanks to your staff. Well done 5 star all the way. We're going to come over in ferry next time to visit her instead of flying as easy jet such a hassle now. Btw Sarah has just got into Irish junior dressage team so keep an eye out, hopefully the small town girl will make it big soon. Thank you again for caring for her.
