Stena Line has acted on passenger feedback to review entry policy for the Stena Plus areas of its ShipPax award-winning Belfast-Cairnryan route vessels Stena Superfast VII and VIII, and now only children aged eight years or above are to be allowed access.

A Stena statement explained: ‘Following extensive feedback, we’ve decided to review our entry policy for Stena Plus in relation to kids and infants. It’s quite clear that the vast majority of Stena Plus customers would like this lounge to be a quiet and relaxing space, a place to unwind and recharge.’ Praising the work of interior designers Figura Arkitekter, the ShipPax Awards jury said: ‘These vessels are in a class of their own, providing a unique experience of crossing the North Channel.’

Former route vessel Stena Caledonia, renamed Portlink, finally started a 30-day voyage to Indonesia on 3 July, with a first stop in Gibraltar to take on bunkers.
