Shuttle bus from the cruise port to the city center of Marseille
Large cruise ships dock at 8 to 10 km from the center of Marseille. Most cruise lines offer a shuttle service (whether or not paid). Often the shuttle buses bring you to Fort Saint-Jean, near Vieux-Port on walking distance from the city center. The trip takes about 20 minutes. If you dock at La Joliette (only small ships) you find yourself within walking distance from the center.
