“Food let Stena down on the return trip!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Travelling with my wife and 2 teenage children. Outward Harwich to the hook on the night crossing. All went really well cabins clean, food satisfactory and staff helpfull and polite. For the return journey we had booked a day crossing with airline seats. Owning to having enjoyed our holiday so much we missed the boat. The staff at Stena could not have been more helpful. They arranged a crossing for that night with 2 cabins and only charged us £13 admin fee. We obviously expected a similar experience to that of our outward journey, how wrong we were. The food was cold and undercooked sandwiches with very little filling, staff were at best rude and often surly to other pasengers. Our conclusion was that outward had been a ND crew Homeward had been a uk crew. If this is always the case that the boat is maned by a UK crew for people visiting the UK what message are we sending out about the UK? Rating outward 4 homewood 1

“A nice relaxing day on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We travelled from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire and back again a week later. On both segments we purchased the premium tickets (Fast on/ fast off and access to the louge.) The time passed quickly on the high speed cat vessel.


Both times we arrived about an hour and a bit ahead. On the return segment, we were first off and this of course is well worth the price.

The louge was fine,,, a bit noisy for the most part, but we enjopyed the space, coffees and snacks.


Sit back and enjoy the crossing.

“Trip to Hoek van Holland (Aug 3rd 2013)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We were travelling on the Stena Britannica from Harwich to Hoek van Holland. When we arrived on board they didn't play a greeting or safety message over the PA system. But anyway, the boat trip was great, it was very smooth, on such a windy day. It was only a little bit bumpy, but I didn't really feel it, as I spent most of the journey lying in the Casino window. There were electrical outlets everywhere which worked great, the entertainment zone is surprisingly very small but there's lots of space to freely move about, the boat just looks big because it has alot of cabins. We ate lunch in the restaurant, the fries were really nice, they werent the really fatty type. The boat had a basketball/football court on board which was great, my nephew spent his day there. There's also a reading room, games room, cinema, shop and internet room. The Wi-Fi worked, but it was pretty slow and you couldn't you couldn't really get a good connection to it. At least it worked though.
