Sing along as you sip a Guinness or Irish coffee, or why not try a special Shamrockarita in the cocktail bar? In the buffet restaurant, you can find traditional favourites such as an Irish Breakfast or Fish 'n’ Chips, alongside a wide range of dishes.

 

What else can I do on board?

 

You’ll feel like you’ve struck gold when you experience Stena Vision. Relax and pamper yourself in our Pure Nordic Spa, where you can book a beauty treatment, take a dip in the Jacuzzi or have some time out in the sauna. If weather permits, the Deck Bar offers tasty drinks and endless sea views, or head indoors for a comfy seat and drink in the Sky bar or cocktail bar. Food and drink options include Taste restaurant and the Barista Coffee House, while The Shop sells a wide range of premium brand fragrances, beauty products, alcohol and confectionary. If after all that you find yourself needing a moment alone, you can retire to your own comfortable cabin with en suite bathroom any time of day or night.

 

Are children welcome?

 

Absolutely – the mini-cruise is an ideal way for children to experience a weekend at sea and set foot on French soil for a good price. On board, they can spend time in the Game Zone and Happy World play area. There’s a range of Wi-Fi packages to keep everyone connected throughout the journey, plus children eat for half price in our buffet restaurant.
