New “Stena Line” ferries on the route Nynäshamn-Ventspils

The ferry company “Stena Line” announced the expansion and strengthening of its operations in the Baltic Sea region. Next year, the existing ships on the Nynäshamn-Ventspils route will be replaced by two modern ferries – “Stena Lagan” and “Stena Mersey”. The new ferries will offer passengers an attractive way to travel in the Baltic Sea. They will also increase freight volumes on this route by 30 percent.

“Stena Line” is one of the world's leading ferry companies, providing 18 ferry routes in Europe. Three of them operate in the Baltic Sea. Since “Stena Line” acquired a ferry route between Nynäshamn in Sweden and Ventspils in Latvia in 2012, it has more than doubled its operations from one vessel and 10 voyages per week to the current fixed timetable of two vessels and 24 voyages per week for passengers and cargo. 

“Stena Line” recently announced that it will expand and strengthen its position in 2021 and offer to passengers and cargo carriers in the Baltic Sea on the Nynäshamn-Ventspils route two modern and extended RoPax ferries – “Stena Lagan” and “Stena Mersey”. These two convenient ferries will allow passengers to better enjoy their trip, making “Stena Line” an attractive choice for travelers in the Baltic Sea.

The ferries, with an impressive length of 222 m, will provide much more space for passengers and cargo. The interior will be bright and spacious, in line with the well-known “Stena Line” Scandinavian design. Passengers will benefit from the new modifications. The ferries will have new cabin categories, a large trendy ship's shop, lounge areas with deck chairs and many other facilities, including two restaurants, a bar, a café and an outdoor deck.

About the route:

The crossing time is 8.5 hours and it is the fastest sea connection between Sweden and the Baltic States. The route is a popular choice for both transport and tourists and is an important supply line for the manufacturing and construction industry in Sweden.
