Aha, I see... Got it now !

Check these ones pls:

Cyprus ferries schedule and prices for ferry services linking Cyprus, Egypt, Israel, Syria and Greece
Cyprus Cruises from Cruise Cyprus - Take a trip on a cruise ship to Egypt or Israel whilst on holiday, a ferry from Athens to Limassol ferries from Italy or the UK. Mini cruises to Rhodes, the Greek Islands, Lebanon, Beirut, Syria and the Holyland on
Famagusta to Latakia (AKGÜNLER DENÝZCÝLÝK)

Hope this helps

I assume you're coming from Sweden by bike. The options to enter Cyprus with the bike are two:

+ Via Piraeus (Greece) - you put your bike on the boat and fly by plane from Athens into Cyprus. Salamis is the company to contact. It is pretty expensive though (around 500 EUR shipping).

+ Via Turkey - there are daily ferry's from Mersin to Kyrenia (North Cyprus). It's much cheaper (around 50-70 EUR) and takes around 7 hours. The same way to get out of Cyprus and head to Syria
