Stena Line is trialling Japanese-style pod sleeping accommodation on two of its Baltic ropaxes.
The 2 sq m pods were installed on ‘Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’ and ‘Skåne’, which operate on a seven-hour run between Rostock, Germany and Trelleborg, Sweden.
“We see it as an innovative offer for a cost-conscious target group, which nonetheless values comfort and privacy,” said Martin Wahl, travel commercial manager for Stena Lines routes between Germany and Sweden. “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,”
Each berth is equipped with a mattress and bed linen, as well as air conditioning, a charging station and WiFi. Luggage can be stored outside the pods in lockers.
