Not very impressed. Not much to see and too much time on the bus.

About Cannes, France

Cannes has an international reputation for glamour - pictures and movie clips of its croisette, its film stars and its grand hotels instantly conjure up an image of style and sophistication. Cannes is much changed from its beginnings as a resort when an English traveller, Lord Brougham, was quarantined there in 1834. Nowadays, the city hosts conventions and festivals all year round - and there's plenty to attract the guests and delegates.

We got a shore excursion with AA to see Cannes, Nice, and Monte Carlo. We saw the changing of the guard at Prince Albert's castle. We even got to take a lap around the Grand Prix. This was a great port and an experience we will always cherish.

Excellent first experience of France. We grabbed a great taxi driver to give us a tour. We got to see the French Riviera Coast, Nice, a perfume factory, and had lunch in Monaco. Does it get any better?

Tendering required (takes forever, get early reservation) Slightly snobby and lots of shopping. Everything in walking distance from port. Get something sweet from a bakery!

We took the Grasse/St. Paul excursion that was a half day. This tour was too short especially in St. Paul. Should have been a full day to allow art lovers to browse galleries or non art lovers to shop in this quaint medieval village with spectacular views. We barely had time to walk up to the village when we were being pushed back on the bus to go back to the ship. Hopefully this excursion is lengthened after the many complaints. We spent the rest of our port time I walking back to Cannes where there are countless cafes and shopping.
