My mother and I will be on a European cruise (By Norwegian Cruise Lines) in August. We will land in Cannes port on August 11 (Saturday) from 7AM-7PM. That's a 12 hour cruise port… meaning there's either a lot to do (which I'm sure there is) or the cruise port is a drive from the location you want to get to.
I found Monaco, Nice and the Italian Market… would be great if we can do all three that day (if possible let me know ^_____^). It sounds like a good portion of people go to Monaco.
In the Norwegian Cruise Excursion site they have Monaco on your own (8hr) for $109
and Highlights of Monaco and Nice (8hr) for $119
But I'm not a fan of Cruise directed excursions – they stuff you in a bus with 50+ people, they guides aren't passionate – you don't get as much out of it as the locals working for a local company. That's where I'm hoping people here can advise me. How do people typically go on about the Cannes cruise excursion port? Any tour company you recommend? Is it possible to visit all three sites (the ladies love to shop) – I read on Saturday the Italian Market is at San Remo… may be a bit far – but we do technically have 12 hours >___<
