Having relieved Stena Superfast X at Dublin, Stena Nordica returned to the North Channel again this year, following spells on charter with DFDS and GNV.  Stena Nordica is of course a part-sister ship to P&O’s European Causeway and European Highlander having originally been built for P&O as European Ambassador.  To have a look around inside Stena Nordica click here.
