Stena Plus offers a range of comfortable leather seating including sofas and sofa chairs on two levels, so you can find the area which is just right for you.

In addition to seating, passengers who travel in the luxurious Stena Plus lounge can enjoy waiter service and choose from a premium menu which includes a range of speciality seafood dishes and old favourites. So you can simply relax in your seats and order meals at your leisure.

Onboard Shopping

In the Superfast VII shop you’ll find a range of gifts, jewellery and fragrances with prices on average 40% cheaper than the UK high street.

Additional Onboard Facilities

Chill out in the onboard ‘Living Room’ – your lounge at sea! Enjoy complimentary magazines and all the latest news on 70” plasma TV screens.

  • "A Fine Start"

    I arrived early for departure and was very happy with the speed and efficiency of the service. The crossing was smooth and the seating in the Stena Plus Lounge was very comfortable. Access to my car for disembarkation was trouble free and all in all I was totally satisfied with my experience on the Stena Superfast VII ferry.

  • "Short and sweet "

    After a long drive, it was a welcome break to be able to unwind in the room and have a short nap. Not that the babies allowed it, but great to lie down in bed for 2 h. Staff was very helpful and made the whole thing very straight forward.

  • "Engine trouble"

    I was on board from Belfast and for a while, we were cruising along. Then, once we saw land, we stopped and about 15-30 minutes went by before we heard the announcement of 'one engine has stopped'. We are working on the issue but we cannot dock. Needless to say, 1 hour after our original arrival, we made it off the ferry. I was glad that I only needed to drive to Glasgow from the terminal.

  • "A Good Service"

    Quick and easy boarding and off-loading. Travelling by car with Stena to Ireland is made efficient and no problem, even for a 'mature' single female. These ships are reasonably stable . I just wish they would go a wee bit faster! Friendly, helpful staff.

  • "All good"

    Impressed by the free on-board facilities to help keep children amused i.e. cinema, soft play. One thing I'd encourage Stena Line to be more stringent with is lorry drivers (and other drivers) starting their engines to soon before disembarking as it was horrible walking aside those carrying small children to get to our car.

    After a 2hour drive to Belfast and a 4 hour drive once off the boat we needed to have rest and we definitely got it! A relaxing Stenna lounge helped immensely, with complimentary drinks and nibbles, comfortable chairs, newspapers and T.V! Helpful staff topped it off. Would recommend to everyone!
