    We were travelling to Sweden and broke down in Germany which meant we would miss our Kiel to Gothenberg boat-the lady at Direct ferries was so lovely made very helpful suggestion to onwards travel and in the end of it we travelled Rostock to Trelleborg and got a full refund on our missed trip.Go. All I can say is when we felt like crying and cancelling our trip your lovely lady made the difference with no fuss ,bother and heartache-Thank you

  • "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.

    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)

  • "Trip"

    Ferry clean and tidy. Staff on board very helpful and kind. Everything excellent. 5 stars. Only flaw, the company website wasn't very clear and to amend my ticket I had to pay an extra €123 for a fee that should have been only €51. I had a problem with my motorbike in Lapland and I asked to amend the date 4 days in advance. On the website, it was clearly stated that to change a ticket i had to pay a fee. I understand that and paid to change the ticket. On my return, I went on the website and realised that it's not very clear how much the amendment fees are and their terms and conditions. The Direct Ferries agent i spoke to was very kind and initially told me that the fees would have been around €51 (she had to check with Stena). Later, she called me back and told me the fees was actually €72. The agent was sorry about the inconvenience. I believe Direct Ferries was not responsible for this. Therefore, i tried to contact Stena but after speaking to different agents, in 2 days, I gave up. I would like to point out that Direct Ferries service was precise and reliable. The agents very kind and helpful

  • "Nice ending for a long drive from Portugal to Sweden!"

    It was lovely to board and rest on Stena Scandinavia after a 3320 km drive from Portugal to Sweden. We booked a Skylight suite on deck 11 that had a fantastic service. We are very satisfied and will therefore do this again, as we live in both Portugal and Sweden. Thank you Stena Line for a nice trip!

  • "Nice transportation to the continent"

    If you are going to bring the car to Germany there is only one way to do this. Take the Stena Line ferry from Gothenburg to Kiel. Easy embarking, even easier check-in. You are met by staff and crew at all serving places. The amenities on board are impecable. On time departuers and good service makes Stena Line a winner.
