The ferry company Stena Line has announced the expansion and strengthening of its operations in the Baltic Sea region. Next year, the existing vessels on the Ninashamna-Ventspils route will be replaced by two extended RoPax ferries – “Stena Lagan” and “Stena Mersey”, the company informs.
Stena Line points out that the new ferries will expand the offer for both passengers and will allow a 30 percent increase in freight traffic on this route.
The 222 m long ferries will provide more space for passengers and will be able to accommodate more cargo on board. The interior will correspond to the well-known Scandinavian design. The ferries will have new cabin categories, a ship’s shop, loungers and many other areas, including two restaurants, a bar, a café and an outdoor deck. The number of cabins will be almost twice as large as at present – 764 beds will be provided.
“Demand from our customers in the Baltic Sea region has grown. We are now strengthening our position in the region by expanding our offering with new, modern vessels and more capacity,” says Niclas Mårtensson, CEO of Stena Line.
