Stena Line‘s STENA ADVENTURER entered service in 2003 on the Holyhead – Dublin route. At the time, she was the longest vessel serving the central corridor at over 211 metres, surpassing Irish Ferries‘ ULYSSES by just 3 metres! She brought a huge capacity boost to the route with space for 3,400 lanemetres of freight and up to 1,500 passengers.
Over the last 18 years, the vessel has undergone numerous refurbishments and upgrades to her passenger accommodation. Ferry photographer and writer, David Faerder, took a trip recently to look at the latest refurbishment work which was undertaken during 2020. He has kindly provided a selection of photographs here.
