Docking in the cruise port of Cannes

The cruise port of Cannes, your starting point for great excursions

The port of Cannes is too small for cruise ships. Your ship will anchor in the bay and you will come ashore by tender boat. The tender boat station is located at Quai Croisière south of the city, where ferries dock. From here, it is a short walk to the major landmarks and to the city center. Cannes is the perfect starting point for a trip to Nice or Monaco.
