The company’s Head of PR and Communications, Diane Poole OBE, believes the golden anniversary is a fantastic opportunity to say thank you to customers. She said:
“The first Stena Line ferry departed from Stenpiren in Gothenburg to Skagen in Denmark in 1962. This was the beginning of a much longer journey for the organisation as now, 50 years later; Stena Line has become one of the world’s largest ferry companies!
“Fifty years in business is a huge landmark for Stena Line and we want to make sure our loyal customers who helped us reach this momentous milestone can celebrate with us.”
Birthday celebrations are taking place onboard all routes on Friday 28th September with live entertainment, birthday cake and lots more.
“Stena Line believes that ferry travel is much more than a journey from A to B,” Diane continued, “Customers have been ‘making memories’ down the years, travelling with family and friends for a variety of reasons and to acknowledge this, we have been asking customers to share their memories which have been collated into an online gallery of snap shots and stories. These can be viewed at www.stenaline50yearsofmemories.com you might even recognise a few faces!”
Customers can take a car-cation to Scotland or England and enjoy the exceptional Stena Line facilities including free wi-fi, movies, onboard shopping, Curious George for kids, or upgrade to Stena Plus for that extra special experience.
