depends on your ship as you will have to tender in from the ship. We were on the Norwegian epic and they are well organised. Wheelchair lift down to the tender platform. Help onto the tender and off. We had a calm day so all went well. Get a map and walk to the castle museum. Steps are marked on... More

When in Cannes you must do what all others do,so we visited "Palais des festival et des congress".It's a quite ugly building at the start of the "Boulevard de la Croisette". Here the annual film festival takes place. If you expected to see something grandiose you will be disappointed.

Cannes in general is a beautiful place. The beachfront is clean and the many pots of flowers along the walkway make the place welcoming. I would definitely come back in the very near future.

There are cliche things you'll find yourself doing; taking your picture on the red carpet; putting your hands in the celebrity hand prints; sticking your head through a celebrity cut-out for a photo. But there are other things to do as well. There are a few kiosks where you can buy a crepe and eat it while people watching. There's... More

I wanted to see the Palais des Festival as I am a huge movie fan. I was gutted they had the main staircase cordoned off and you were not allowed anywhere near it. If ever there was a photo I wanted taken. There are large screens on the side showing new movies and a Cannes souvenir shop. Nice park at... More

Very organized and information desk worked satisfactory. Large, so we could see everything. Sometimes sound volume was too loud. If people want to listen something just use headphones. Bathrooms was very clean. Also beverage and food ok

This is a very beautiful city and during the Film Festival it is extremely busy, exciting and crowded! Very high end hotels, cars and shops...just like you would expect. We did see the red carpet and all the glitz of the festival but not really a fan! We found a great little cafe Le P'tit Zinc off the Main Street... More
