Stena Line’s two new Superfast vessels, which will be introduced on the new Cairnryan – Belfast route in November, will have a Nordic Spa on board. Stena Superfast VII and Superfast VIII will be the largest ferries ever to sail between Scotland and Northern Ireland and are currently undergoing extensive upgrades in Poland by specialist cruise ship outfitters. When complete the ships will be the first on the Irish Sea to offer passengers the opportunity to relax and indulge in a Pure Nordic Spa during the 2 hour 15 minute crossing. The spa will contain a sauna and Jacuzzi, which will be exclusively available to Stena Plus and Premium fare passengers.
Stena Line‘s new Cairnryan to Belfast service is scheduled to launch on 21st November 2011. The new Superfast vessels will make 12 crossings per day. Each of the 10-deck ships can carry up to 1 200 passengers, 660 cars or 110 freight units.
“We have established a reputation for providing a very high level of customer service, so the prospect of offering our customers the opportunity to unwind in a Pure Nordic Spa at sea has really got our staff excited about giving our customers an even better travel experience,” said Stena Line Route Director Paul Grant.
“We plan to make the facility available to our Stena Plus customers and are confident that it will enhance our premium service offering even further. Although the new Superfast ships will have a crossing time of just 2hr 15mins, our customers will still have enough time to relax and unwind and enjoy their journey even more than before.
“We are always looking at innovative ideas to help improve our offering to customers to ensure that their journey with us is a truly enjoyable experience in itself. The introduction of our Pure Nordic Spas is one such idea and one of a host of onboard facilities which are dedicated to leisure and business passengers.”
