My wife and I and 18 others traveled from Belfast to Scotland on this large ferry. We went as part of a tour and were foot passengers on the boat and were meeting a bus on the Scotland side. The day we travelled the boat was only partially filled so there was all kinds of places to sit and relax.... More

Well organised. Very clean. Bright modern great facilities. The extra lounge was very nice and well worth the extra £. On time and stable even in the stormy crossing we had.

We travelled to and from Belfast over the weekend using this ferry service. It was really excellent: efficient, comfortable, excellent staff throughout the vessel and whatever their role. We will certainly use this and other Stena Line ferries in the future.

We took the crossing from Scotland to Belfast by coach as a large group, the loading / unloading was very simple and little waiting time, the port / boat was easy to find both ends, what was most impressive was the boat and it's decor, facilities, food etc, it was brilliant, the layout was great, loads if really nice places...

I'm sitting in one of the deck eight public areas on Stena Superfast VIII wondering what I can say, that's positive. Given its February and there are only about thirty cars, of a potential six hundred, loaded it's comparatively quiet on board. The port staff in Cairnryan were very friendly and helpful and those on-board, seem to be similar. What... More

We took a trip from Belfast to Glasgow for 34 pounds pp. We upgraded to Stena Plus for an additional 15 pounds each way. It was very comfortable, and enjoyable. We booked through Ulsterbus Tours, as for some reason the Stena Line kept saying the trips was sold out. I would do it again in a heart beat.

I have travelled on ferries all around the UK. The Superfast 7 and 8 are great ships. Very comfortable, well maintained, not run down. Lots of places to sit and lots of outside deck space too. I paid the supplement for the Stena Lounge - quiet, plenty of plugs, great views, free tea/coffee, snacks, fruit, wine - different food menu... More
