Stena Germanica was the first of four large ferries ordered in 1980 by Stena Line for Scandinavian routes. She was launched in August 1981 as the Stena Scandinavica. However, due to problems at the construction yard, completion was delayed and it was not until 1987 that she entered service as the Stena Germanica on the overnight Kiel–Gothenburg route, joined in 1988 by the second of the quartet, Stena Scandinavica. In 2010, Stena Germanica was replaced by Stena Hollandica. Following rebuilding in Gothenburg she was renamed Stena Vision.
In her original layout, Stena Germanica had berths for 2,374 passengers and took 550 cars. Following refit, Stena Vision accommodates 1,700 passengers in a variety of standards of cabin. There are an À la carte and a buffet restaurant, a large shop, several bars and a spa. Her vehicle deck can take 360 cars. She is a Ro Ro ferry.
From 1987 to 2010, Stena Germanica operated the overnight Kiel–Gothenburg route.
