Limassol, Cyprus, 14 October 2022: DP World Limassol welcomed Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas on her stopover to DP World Limassol Cruise Terminal with passengers on board, on Thursday 13th October 2022.

The fact that some of the biggest cruise ships in the World are now calling at Limassol port, is a testament to the efforts that DP World Limassol and the Government have been making to improve the port’s competitiveness and transform it into a major homeport in the Eastern Mediterranean.”
