, UK United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 07, 2007 -- Stena Line invites passengers to bring their hot dogs and cool canines to Holland by ferry to take part in continental dog shows.
Departing from Harwich twice daily the Stena Hollandica and Stena Britannica take Stena Line passengers on a smooth crossing to the Hook of Holland in 6 hours and 15 minutes. Located under an hour and a half from the Hook of Holland, Hertogenbosch is one of the best places to go for dog shows in Holland whilst Amsterdam, also under an hour and half from the Hook of Holland, is hosting the established Winnershow, which has been going strong since the 19th century.
Across the last week-end in November the Europaplein in Amsterdam will be hosting the 118th Winnershow where dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages will be paraded around the arena in the hope of winning one of Winnershowâs prestigious accolades.
In December the Branbanthallen is holding the 15th bi-annual Molosser breed dog show. This event has been the main show for Molosser breeds, such as bulldogs and boxers, since 1979.
Holidaymakers and dog devotees can watch the pooches being judged in categories such as the best baby in the show, the best puppy in the show, and the best veteran in the show as they parade around the ring of honour.
Stena Line offers comfortable kennel services for pets onboard the Stena Britannica and Stena Hollandica on the Harwich - Hook of Holland route. The pet area is in a quiet area of the vessel to ensure pets remain calm and tranquil during the crossing. Passengers can also enjoy a leisurely crossing taking advantage of the new onboard facilities on these newly refurbished ferries.
Guests can catch up on some sleep in the completely refurbished cabins, each featuring high quality Dux mattresses and en-suite bathroom facilities. Comfort Class and Captain Class cabins feature plasma screen televisions and minibars filled with complimentary snacks and beverages. Passengers could choose to head to the onboard cinema to watch the latest Hollywood blockbuster, browse for a bargain at the onboard shop or indulge in something delicious to eat at one of the two onboard eateries, Food City and Metropolitan.
