Cruises in Cyprus
As the easternmost island in the Mediterranean, Cyprus is a natural point of departure for exploring this amazingly diverse region. All year round locally based cruise lines, departing from Limassol port, help locals and tourists alike get a firsthand perspective of the splendors of ancient Egypt, major attractions in Israel and Lebanon and, of course, the Greek islands.
Comfortable and convenient tours of the Mediterranean
These cruises are typically of two-to-five days' duration and make use of Cyprus' geographic position to eliminate the need to book hotels in the selected ports of call. For example, on the popular two-day cruise from Cyprus to Egypt (only 200 miles south), passengers overnight on board, spend a full day exploring the Great Pyramids at Giza and overnight on the ship again en route to Cyprus.
The cruises are operated by large and comfortable cruise ships which offer full board accommodation and entertainment at very reasonable prices. Bookings for these cruises can be made while on holiday in Cyprus.
Also many tour operators in Europe and elsewhere feature the cruises in their holiday brochures. The ships usually leave Limassol (Lemesos) port between midday and early evening.
