  • "Boys trip"

    I took my two sons (8 & 10) on a boys adventure to Rotterdam using the stena ferry. From the moment we boarded at 9pm for the Friday night crossing the fun began. An exploration of the ship, then to our cabin for a good nights sleep. The boys waited up for us to depart. In the morning chocolate custard was their breakfast highlight. (And mine). The range and quality of good was fantastic. Arriving at Hook railway station literally outside. Sunday afternoon and we were first passengers to board. Again many excellent crew around to offer help if needed. We sat right at front of shop by window and enjoyed two meals and the crossing home. Great fun and will do again

  • "A comfortable voyage."

    I must say that Stena Lines service was excellent on our recent trip to Hook of Holland. The boarding process was easy and fast. The cabin was roomy and clean. Leaving the vessel in the morning was also speedy. I will travel another time with Stena Line. Thank you.

  • "STENA launch plus"

    I really appreciated this separated launch. If you don't want to be amongst noisy televisions and playing kids, this is a very good alternative for a reasonable price. Plus, the free coffee is of excellent quality.
