Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Due to the short crossing, cabin accommodation is not available on the Superfast VII however reserved seating is available in the Stena Plus Lounge. Stena Plus offers a range of comfortable leather seating including sofas and sofa chairs on two levels, so you can find the area which is just right for you.

In addition to seating, passengers who travel in the luxurious Stena Plus lounge can enjoy waiter service and choose from a premium menu which includes a range of speciality seafood dishes and old favourites. So you can simply relax in your seats and order meals at your leisure.

Onboard Shopping

In the Superfast VII shop you’ll find a range of gifts, jewellery and fragrances with prices on average 40% cheaper than the UK high street.

Additional Onboard Facilities

Chill out in the onboard ‘Living Room’ – your lounge at sea! Enjoy complimentary magazines and all the latest news on 70” plasma TV screens.

  • "Smooth Sailing "

    Easy booking through Direct Ferry complete with scannable ticket. Checked in at both ends easily and quickly. We left our car at Cairnryan. Lots of parking available. Check you bag and it’s on the belt by the time you walk to the terminal. Beautiful ship. Almost like a cruise ship rather than a ferry. First time using the ferry and cannot be more satisfied with our journey.

  • "good service"

    We recently did the crossing between Cairn Ryan and Belfast returning by the same route, Overall we were very pleased with the service and especially the staff and crew we encountered. We prepaid for breakfast on the outward journey and frankly it was a mistake The breakfast was old and tired (we ate it whilst waiting to depart the dock) and obviously left over from the previous journey. My advice would be to wait for an hour or so in order to have a fresher version other than that the ship was clean and confortable and the crew excellent personable and polite. We decidie to return early and was charge (apoligetically) another £53 Why so much? I assumed it was a busier time for the ferry but it was almost empty on the 11:30pm crossing nobody had any idea. I would use stena again tho as the only alternative was P&O and after the dover sacking and rehire scandal I will never use them

    Both ships clean and plenty to keep you occupied on crossing, we travelled in the hygge lounge...comfortable reclined seats in a private lounge for those who don't want to sit in a restaurant or pub on the way over...staff were all pleasant and helped you with any concern you had. Would recommend Stena Line for this crossing.
