Cyprus Cruise Vacation: Discover The Sun-Kissed Coastline

A cruise holiday to Cyprus brings you to the crossroads between east and west, to an island that has been the steppingstone of practically every influential civilization in the region. From Neolithic settlers to the adventurous Phoenicians and the genius of the Ancient Greeks, the island’s deep ancient roots make it a mosaic of cultures. And as the third largest island in the eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus boasts dramatic landscapes, sun-kissed coasts and the cool Troodos Mountains – not to mention the vineyard-studded hills, castles and monasteries that make even the shortest foray unforgettable.

A Contrast of Culture

It only takes a few hours to see how the modern and very ancient past easily commingle on this island nation. Cyprus may be part of the European Union today, but Middle Eastern influences linger and lend their charms. At times, the island feels akin to the coastal cities of Israel and Lebanon, which lay closer to Cypriot shores than Athens. And thanks to its fantastic beaches and quaint, historic old town, this eclectic destination draws travellers from around the world. No less today than in the age of knights and Crusades, when Richard the Lionheart banished the Byzantine rulers and married his beautiful bride, Berengaria, in Limassol Castle.

The Crossroads Between East and West

Love Island

According to Greek legend, Cyprus is said to be the heaven upon which Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, was washed ashore in the foam of a wave at Petra Tou Romiou, an impressive rock formation on the coast of Cyprus between Limassol and Pafos.

Exclusive Excursions

The cosmopolitan port city of Limassol is a striking chain of new high-rises towering over the charming colonial walls and quaint churches. Stroll along the seaside promenade for a panoramic view or join our expert guide for an insightful tour around the UNESCO protected city of Pafos.

Ancient Wine

Made from sun-dried grapes, the island's sweet red dessert wine is the oldest wine in the world that is still manufactured. Originally referenced by Greek poets in 800 BC, it was christened commandaria by the Knights Templar stationed here during the Crusades and is still drank today.

Cultural Cyprus Cruise Vacations

Iconic Monuments in the Med

Cyprus’ tumultuous history has left an indelible mark on the island’s architecture and culture. You will also note the Cypriots drive on the right-hand side of the road, a custom left by the British that brought the island in the fold of its far-reaching Empire between 1878 and 1960.

Tastes of Cyprus

While commandaria is principally a dessert wine, there are many sumptuous wines throughout Cyprus and the Greek islands. It’s always fun to mix with the locals in the charming tavernas and sample the local flavors. Just remember, cheers in Greece is yamas!
