I stopped reading F&CR some time ago if Iím honest, so havenít seen the article.
I can confirm the HYGGE lounge is located on deck 7 aft of the restaurant though. The article is correct if it says it was in a little used area, but it definitely wasnít a cinema (the cinema is on deck 8 ). From memory the same area on deck 7 is a quiet lounge on X. There are no Hygge lounges on any of the rest of the Irish Sea fleet (yet?). Thereís a gallery on NIFS if anyone wants a look https://www.niferry.co.uk/stena-line-introduce-hygge-recline-lounge-belfast-cairnryan/
As Rory says, SSF X has had one of her cinemas converted to a lounge for commercial drivers in response to feedback. Perhaps it could become a Hygge lounge in future, but that would leave the problem of where to put freight and coach drivers. Perhaps the quiet lounge could become Hygge if they decide to roll it out, who knows?
Out of interest, who wrote the article? I know thereís been a few changes in the team doing the mag recently.
Edit: corrected the autocorrect on my phone!
