MS Stena Nordica is a ro-pax ferry operated by Stena Line between Holyhead and Dublin.
Stena Nordica was originally built European Ambassador for P&O Irish Sea. She initially entered service between Liverpool and Dublin. Soon after she was used on the new Mostyn - Dublin service. This service however, was short lived and closed in 2004.
Sale to Stena Line
Following the closure of the Mostyn service, she was sold to Stena Line in 2004 and renamed Stena Nordica. She entered service on the Karlskrona - Gdynia route in May of the same year.
In 2008, she returned to the Irish Sea route which she currently operates. She is a close relative to the P&O Irish Sea twins European Causeway and European Highlander, which operate between Cairnryan and Larne.
