The ferry serves a purpose but is a very expensive way to cross the North Channel. There isn't much choice unfortunately so prices remain high for cars and foot passengers alike.

This was my first ferry crossing. Booked Cairnryan to Belfast. We booked a suite and the entire procedure from arriving at the port to disembarking was a pleasure. The crossing was smooth and quiet. The suite was an ideal place to just relax for a couple. Of hours. We also visited the lounge which again was quiet and the staff... More

Sailing with Stena line is soo much easier than a flight from Glasgow to Belfast. It is so much more hassle free. I check in at 6.50am and board at 7am for my 7.30am sailing. I upgrade myself to the Stena plus lounge where it is peaceful and fully equipped with free tea coffee cans of soft drinks and continental... More

Took this to Cairnryan, Scotland. Very smooth and luxurious trip. We had no idea food was served and it was delicious. There was a free breakfast buffet. The seating was comfortable and the views inspiring

We were off to Belfast-Dunmurry for a family members' 70th birthday party, & chose the 11.30am crossing from Cairnryan to Belfast on Saturday on the Superfast VIII and the same boat on the 11.30am return on the following day, Sunday. We booked the Stena Plus lounge both ways, and it's worth every penny. Comfort, peaceful surroundings, attentive & cheerful staff,... More
