  • "Kiel -Gothenburg . Booking with Direct Ferries was easy and quick and effective."

    A most pleasant and relaxing evening enjoying our cabin and the facilities that the ferry has to offer. Although we were very close to the " dog cabins!" Their barking did not bother us too much.. The personnel were most helpful and freindly. The trip was a perfect ending to our one months holiday in England. In the morning we felt refreshed after a good nights sleep on the comfortable matresses. Ready for our drive to Stockholm,. We will definitely be travelling with Stina Line again as we have many times in the past. The most comfortable way to travel to Denmark and Germany.

  • "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)
