Stena Line is the first ferry company to offer its customers Japanese sleeping pods which will be a cost-efficient way to sleep and rest during the crossing.

“We see it as an innovative offer for a cost-conscious target group, which nonetheless values comfort and privacy,” said Martin Wahl, Stena Line’s Travel Commercial Manager for Stena Lines routes between Germany and Sweden.

Each berth is equipped with a mattress and bed linen, as well as air conditioning, charging station and WiFi – and luggage can be stored outside the pods in lockers.

“The sleeping pods are a great way for young people, backpackers or campers to travel cheaply and comfortably to Sweden. But also travellers on short break and business travellers can fully recover with this modern way of travelling,” says Martin Wahl.

The journey from Rostock to Trelleborg takes 6 or 7 hours depending on the departure and is one of the most popular routes between Germany and Sweden, especially during the summer months.
