Northern Ireland’s leading ferry company, Stena Line, has invested £4.6m on its ships on the Belfast to Liverpool route.
The Stena Lagan and Stena Mersey have been refurbished by £2.3m each and now have free Wi-Fi and a new Living Room area, like the company's Cairnryan and Dublin ferries.
Head of communications Diane Poole OBE said: “We have invested in new lounge areas, kids play area and in our food offering. We have also upgraded our outside cabins and family cabins and have introduced five new comfort class cabins per ship, which offer the ultimate in relaxation and comfort.
“We know our customers want space to relax which we now offer in the new Living Room area, Stena Plus lounge and a new dedicated News Lounge. Customers want to stay in touch while they travel so we offer free Wi-Fi and complimentary use of iMacs in our Pod Lounge.
“To keep the little ones entertained we have a kids’ climbing wall, funky seating area and Xbox Kinect. For the not so little ones we have Teen Town, offering a range of gaming stations and of course Stena Line provides free movies throughout all sailings.
“The cabins are really the icing on the cake as our family cabins now offer a fridge with complimentary soft drinks, fruit bowl and a TV and DVD with a range of family films."
