Stena Line has announced that the Stena Express Fastcraft has returned to the popular Fishguard to Rosslare route.

The Stena Express vessel, which caters for up to 520 passengers and up to 120 cars, has returned to service on the Fishguard to Rosslare Irish Sea route. The vessel has been significantly upgraded following a £2m refit and boasts a new extended Stena Plus lounge, Metropolitan and Barista coffee bar, free Wi-Fi and an onboard shop which offers a wide range of gifts, jewellery, spirits, confectionary and fragrances.

This means that Stena Express Fastcraft travellers across the Irish Sea can forget about cramped leg room, baggage charges and putting the contents of their hand luggage in a plastic bag and enjoy the freedom of sailing with Stena Line like being able to pack as much luggage as they want into the car. Once onboard customers can sit back, relax and enjoy the great choice of restaurants and bars, take in the panoramic views of the Irish Sea or pick up some savings in the onboard shop.

Stena Line Communications Manager, Nigel Tilson said: "As the Stena Express rejoins the Fishguard to Rosslare route we look forward to providing customers with even more reasons to cross the Irish Sea during the summer months.

"The Stena Express offers excellent onboard facilities giving passengers the chance to sit back and relax as they travel. The vessel will complement our Stena Europe Superferry, offering customers three round trips daily on our Fishguard to Rosslare route."

The Stena Express Fastcraft will be operating between Fishguard and Rosslare up until September 5th and will then return to service on the Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire route.

Stena Line is the Irish Sea’s leading ferry company, offering more routes and more crossings between Ireland and Britain.
