About Gothenburg

    • Stena ships are very good but catering for vegans and vegetarians are not so good. The smell of fish in the restaurants put me off. The outside cabins are better because you have a window. The cabins are comfortable and the hot showers are excellent. The ticket price never goes down so if you leave to book in the same day, the price will go up. I traveled from UK to Gothenberg, so I drove all the way from Hook of Holland to Kiel so I thought that I would not make in time to catch the ferry from Kiel, I left to buy the ticket later and the price went up. The aferry app should be like the results for air tickets with price by day and time not for a best price that is not the dates that you put in the search box.
