Press Releases   •   Dec 21, 2016 09:54 GMT

145,000 passengers and 43,000 cars booked to cross Irish Sea with Stena Line over Christmas

Stena Line’s Diane Poole said: “As always, the Christmas period is set to be a very busy one for Stena Line with approximately 145,000 passengers and 43,000 cars currently booked to travel between now and January 3. The busiest period within this is December 21-23 and our crossings from January 2-4 are also particularly busy as people return home after the Christmas holidays.

“However, given the size of our fleet and choice of routes, we still have some very limited availability for anyone planning a last minute trip home but you’d really need to be booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We have no sailings on Christmas Day on any of our routes,” she added.

For travellers making a trip across the Irish Sea this Christmas, ‘Rail and Sail’ packages are available from €46 single, while drivers wanting to take their car are advised to check out the Low Fares Finder on the Stena Line website.
