Royal Caribbean Sets Sights on Cyprus for Consecutive Summer Seasons

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 holidaymakers 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 2022-2023 cruises from Limassol are now open.  

Adventurers can choose from a line-up of seven-night Greek Isles cruises that sail roundtrip from Limassol in August and September of this year. 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 seven-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 two- to seven-night itineraries to Greece, the Greek Isles and Cyprus.

 Continuing the cruise line’s commitment to growing its presence in the region, this year 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.

 Savvas Perdios, deputy minister of tourism, Cyprus commented, “It has been an honour to host Royal Caribbean in 2021, which was another challenging year for global tourism. We are proud of what has been achieved by both sides and delighted that our collaboration will be enhanced further in 2022 and 2023!”
