I love getting the boat, and with the new one there is always seats and noone charging to get seating. It is smooth sailing, has everything you need for a crossing, staff very helpful

Have travelled several times, especially on the day trips in the Stena Lounge....brill relaxing day out and well worth the money! Myself and my daughter love it and recommend the Christmas shopping cruise!

Picture the Scene: You've just arrived in Belfast City Centre for a whistlestop tour and want to squeeze in as much as possible. What do you do?

That's right, you book a ticket to Scotland as quickly as possible.

Stenaline will scoop you up from this place and place you on the glorious shores of mainland Britain like a man who's just dropped his phone in a blocked toilet.

Top Tip: I'd choose the Stena SuperfastVIII over the Stena NotsofastVII service any day of the week.

I used the Rail & Sail pass, which was only £29. It included: travel to the port in Belfast, the ferry from Befast to Cairnryan with Stena, a beautiful bus ride from the port in Scotland to the train, and a train ticket to Glasgow central station, though your destination in Scotland can vary for the same price.

Everything was smooth, so simple, and so comfortable. The Stena ferry is beautiful and I spent my entire ride in the coffee lounge, in a giant comfy chair sipping a hazelnut coffee.

In my opinion, this is the best way to travel between Northern Ireland and Scotland and highly recommend it!!!

The BFM still canne get over a return boat and coach trip to Glasgow for £10!each!!!

We got the 7.30 ferry which got us into Cairnryan at 10 ish. Then onto coach for Buchannan St station. Arriving there at 12.15. We had until 4.45 which was when bus returned to get the 7.30 ferry.
