  • "Convenient and Comfortable trip"

    We have travelled with Stena before on this route and again found it convenient and comfortable.  The only issue we had was prior our trip when we were unable make a simple alteration to our booking online as described on the website.  This led to a couple of weeks of uncertainty as to whether we would be able to travel as we were unable to speak to anyone directly.

  • "Brilliant crossing "

    We travelled from Harwich to Holland (and returned) as a party of seven. The efficiency of the whole operation was apparent and we thoroughly enjoyed this part of our journey. We will definitely do it again. We booked cabins to enjoy some quiet time and additional comfort when we were not exploring the boat or enjoying a meal or a game of cards. The only complaint was the walls etc of the cabin etc were pretty grim. Possibly bodily fluids or spilt found/drink unfortunately detracted from the enjoyment of the cabin in our return journey. The linen was perfectly clean but it’s a shame they seem to neglect the overall space.

  • "Trip to hook of Holland and back to Harwich "

    The whole trip was fantastic, food was great, lots of things to kids and adults and lots of sitting places. One I would suggest is maybe stock more games in the shops like playing cards incase travellers forget their own and can purchase on the Ferry. The entertainment was also good.

  • "Great facilities "

    Crossing to and from the Hook of Holland. We had a cabin which was really good. Only criticism was on the return journey there was a delay on disembarkation yet no explanation was given so people knew what was happening.

  • "Poor customer service "

    This company are quite unhelpful. Phone number doesn’t work, can’t speak to an actual person the number just dies. When you try to manage your booking online it always says error which is infuriating. So when I finally got round to adjusting my journeys they cancelled my outward cabin and then gave me two single cabins coming home which is bizarre! Lucky for us stenaline on board we’re very helpful and I will always be booking directly through them for future bookings.

  • "Misleading information "

    We booked a pet friendly cabin via Direct Ferries, which we were surprised to find as the Stena Line site did not have any availability. When we arrived and checked in we found that what we had actually booked was a cabin and a kennel crossing for our dog. We had no choice but to go ahead with the journey but this was absolutely not what we had wanted. Direct Lines booking process was at best unclear and misleading.  Having said that I could not fault Stena Line themselves. The issue is with Direct Ferries.
