Day 10: Cannes, France

image

Norwegian Jade dropped anchor off Cannes, France early in the morning. Another large ship, MSC Divina, was already anchored nearby.


image

Off to the east, yachts resembled a naval flotilla in the morning haze.


image

Cannes was a tender port, so Norwegian Jade's crew had lowered four lifeboats to provide transportation between ship and shore.


image

image

Tenders were being loaded two at a time from a dock that folded out of Norwegian Jade's hull.


image

Every few minutes, a pair of tenders departed toward the Quai Croisière in Cannes.


image

image

We waited until the crowd thinned out, then went ashore ourselves. (These photos were taken from our tender as it left the ship.)


image

Norwegian Jade receded into the distance as we sped toward Cannes.


image

Within a few minutes, we passed the lighthouse that marked the harbor entrance.


image

The tender brought us to the Cannes Cruise Passengers Terminal, which is located on a spit of land at the western edge of the harbor.


image

The terminal had a tourist-information desk (where we obtained a free map) and public toilets. A sign provided a login and password for a free Wi-Fi hotspot.


image

A beach on the other side of the breakwater offered views of Norwegian Jade (left) and MSC Divina.


image

Looking west, we could see more towns and mountains along the French Riviera.


image

image

Hat vendors had set up business along the wall behind the beach. Some of the hats were quite stylish--they weren't just souvenir throwaways.


image

The road and sidewalk from the cruise terminal fed into the Quai St-Pierre, a busy street along the western curve of the waterfront in downtown Cannes.
