Following a successful summer sailing from Limassol, Cyprus, Royal Caribbean International has announced two more seasons of cruising from Cyprus are on the horizon. 

In 2022 and 2023, Rhapsody of the Seas will call Cyprus home for the first time and welcome travellers of all ages to set course for adventure and must-see destinations, such as the Greek Isles, Greece, Israel, Egypt and Turkey. 

Royal Caribbean’s new 2022 and 2023 cruises from Limassol are now open.

Adventurers can choose from a lineup of 7-night Greek Isles cruises that sail roundtrip from Limassol in August and September 2022

From island-hopping to exploring ruins of centuries past, guests will take in the stunning Greek Isles of Rhodes and Santorini and the vibrant, culture-rich cities of Athens, Greece, and Haifa, Israel

The unparalleled summer holiday that combines memorable experiences with convenience and much more for Cypriot holidaymakers and their families will also offer experiences tailored for the local region. These include unique dining and beverage menus, live music and a Greek version of Royal Caribbean’s daily activity planner, the Cruise Compass.

In May-August 2023, Rhapsody will return to the city to set sail on new 7-night Israel and Egypt cruises as well as Greece and Turkey itineraries. Then the stunning Vision Class ship will head to Haifa until early November 2023, sailing a mix of 2- to 7-night itineraries to Greece, the Greek Isles and Cyprus.

Continuing the cruise line’s commitment to growing its presence in the region, 2022 will also see new ways for Cypriot holidaymakers to book their Royal Caribbean getaway. Cruises departing from Limassol will be exclusively available through the following travel companies that are experts in the local market:

  • Top Kinisis Travel
  • Let’s Go Tours by Amathus
  • Century Travel
  • Louis Travel

The cruise line will also continue working with existing partner Navigator Travel & Tourist Services Ltd.

“Cyprus is a key and growing market for Royal Caribbean and presents the perfect gateway for our guests to explore the eastern Mediterranean," said Ben Bouldin, vice president of Europe, Middle East and Africa, Royal Caribbean International. "We look forward to returning to this beautiful island for the next two consecutive summers and welcoming more Cypriot guests on board. I have no doubt that with the ongoing support from the Cyprus Ministry of Tourism and our new sales representatives we are in an excellent position to grow in Cyprus and continue to offer memorable holidays in the region.”
