Stena Line introduce the 'CarCation'
Stena Line believe that their 'CarCation' idea will be the next craze to sweep the nation. Whilst I'm not sure it will have such a startling impact on the UK holiday market, I am a convert to the idea of making a mini-cruise part of the holiday experience when driving to the Continent or across to Ireland. It makes a lot of sense to start the journey with a relaxing overnight ferry especially when the ships offer the many facilities that the Stena Line fleet do!
Overnight ferries allow for a relaxing start to a European 'car-cation' and the great thing is that you don't have to worry about the draconian baggage allowances offered by various low-cost airlines. You just pack it all up and enjoy one of the best travel experiences to Ireland or Holland.
The holiday starts the moment you step onboard. Sit back and relax in our exclusive Stena Plus Lounge, take a snooze in a comfy cabin or chill out in the spa and take a dip in the Jacuzzi for a small extra charge.
There is plenty to keep you occupied if all the relaxation gets too much with free WiFi, free movies, or you can shop ’til you drop in our onboard shop - and for the kids there are play areas and computer games.
