Following an extensive refit programme, the Stena Europe has resumed its scheduled sailing services on the Rosslare Fishguard route. The upgraded vessel will now offer a significant improvement in customer care and has added a new Hygge Lounge offering luxury reclining seats set in a private, ultra-stylish but cosy surroundings, an upgraded retail Shop and a refurbished happy children’s play area to name a few changes.


Ian David (Stena Line Trade Director - Irish Sea South), said, “We are now all looking forward to welcoming the Stena Europe back and I know a lot of our regular customers are looking forward to seeing the improvements.” He also thanked the Captain and crew of the Stena Nodica for their ‘sterling job’ ensuring Stena Line maintained their sailing schedule on Fishguard Rosslare.


The upgrade programme took longer than had been anticipated resulting in the delayed return of the Stena Europe. He said: “We had planned for a number of improvements and additions throughout the ship both of a technical and customer-facing nature, but we did encounter a number of challenges which impacted on our works delivery schedule for which I’d like to apologies to our customers.”


Stena Line is the largest ferry operator on the Irish Sea, offering the biggest fleet and the widest choice of routes between Britain to Ireland including Rosslare to Fishguard, Dublin to Holyhead, Belfast to Liverpool and Heysham, Belfast to Cairnryan routes - a total of 232 weekly sailing options. Stena Line also offers a direct service from Rosslare to Cherbourg with three return crossings a week.
