Virgin Voyages' guide to Cannes
An iconic and stunning resort destination in the French Riviera, Cannes' unparalleled natural beauty rivals the A-list celebrities who vacation here.
Lights. Camera. Cannes.
Make sure to have your camera ready at all times — not only is celeb-spotting a common pastime in Cannes, but the remarkable architecture and unparalleled natural beauty give the A-listers a run for their money.
Spend a day at the beach where Borat's infamous mankini made its debut, watch the sunset at the romantic old quarter of Le Suquet, or dance the night away like the rich and famous did at oh-so many film premiere parties. The city is packed with a sense of duality — where historic, European streets filled with low-key restaurants meet moments (okay, weeks) of peak social glitz and glamour — giving you the opportunity to experience this French gem any way you so choose.
This port may require Sailors to board a tender — it will both drop you off and pick you up from the ship to the port and vice versa.
