How to Get to Cannes From the Cannes Cruise Port
Cruise ships dock in the bay and passengers take tenders (small boats) to the Old Port (Le Vieux Port). From there, it's a short walk to Cannes’ city center, where you’ll find the Quai Laubeuf bus station and the Marine Railway Station (Gare Maritime). Shore excursions typically depart from the dock.
French is the official language in Cannes, but many locals also speak English. The currency is the euro, and there are many ATMs at or near the cruise port.
