Title: Ro/Ro Ferries from Haifa to Cyprus
Post by: Brett Bachmann on October 28, 2017, 08:54:02 am
Looking to travel by car from Haifa to Cyprus in 2018 and battling to find ferry services. Can anybody advise or provide info please ? My friend is travelling by car from Cape Town to Amsterdam by car in 2018 and cannot find info for this part of her journey. Many thanks, Brett.

There is a weekly Haifa/Limasso freight roro run by Cypriot company Salamis Lines with the ALEXO l

The ship has capacity for 12 pax, but it is not clear whether they they are using it.  They might do a "special".

The only other regular roro from Israel seems to be the Haifa/Mersin service by Akdeniz Roro using MUIRNEAG and URAG, but it seems that they have no passenger accommodation
Their website is "coming soon" and has only a phone number: akdenizroro.com
