As the easternmost island in the Mediterranean, it is a natural point of departure for exploring the surrounding countries. The splendours of ancient Egypt, the desert city of Petra in Jordan, the Bible lands and, of course, the Greek islands are just short hops away that you won't want to miss if you’re in this part of the world.
Travel is on board large and comfortable cruise ships offering full board accommodation at very reasonable prices including entertainment. This way you won’t have to book hotels in the various ports of call. Trips last typically from two-to-five days leaving in the afternoon to early evening with travel taking place at night while you sleep. Bookings can be made while on holiday in Cyprus or through tour operators abroad, who feature the cruises in their holiday brochures.
Most international cruise ships sailing the region include Cyprus on their itineraries, calling mainly at Lemesos (Limassol) and Larnaka (Larnaca) ports. A wealth of attractions is within easy reach of the ship so travellers can see the sights during the ship’s short call.
