is celebrating after receiving a top accolade at the recent Northern Ireland Travel and Tourism Awards.
It was named the Best Ferry Company at an award ceremony at the Slieve Donard Resort in Newcastle, which was attended by more than 450 VIPs from the industry.
Paul Grant, Stena Line's Belfast to Stranraer route director, said: "Although this is our 19th win its every bit as important as our first success in this prestigious ceremony."
He noted that the ferry industry is always striving to innovate, which makes it even more impressive that Stena Line has scooped the award once again.
Mr Grant highlighted that this is an important time for the company, as it is preparing to launch ferries from Belfast to Cairnryan service, as well as two new vessels.
The Stena Superfast VII and Superfast VIII claim to be the largest ships ever to have sailed between Northern Ireland and Scotland.
