                                                                Throughout the year, island-based cruise lines, departing from Limassol port, allow locals and tourists alike to get a glimpse of the splendours of ancient Egypt, from the major attractions in Israel and Lebanon and, of course, the Greek Islands.



                                                                These cruises normally last 2 to 5 days and, due to Cyprus's geographical position, it is not necessary to make hotel reservations at selected ports of call. The cruises are organized on large, comfortable cruise ships offering full board accommodation and an entertainment program at very reasonable prices.

                                                                It is possible to have lunch or in the early evening.
