Marseille was switched to Toulon on our cruise due to the interprofessional strike in France which we already knew about from train travelling there prior to the cruise. Toulon was great: kids enjoyed seeing the French naval vessels and MSC provided free shuttle buses and boats into town and we just explored by foot. Read Less

I had originally planned to visit Aix-en-Provence by train when in Marseille, but a French railway strike meant that this was not possible. Instead I visited the Church of Notre Dame de la Guard which dominates the Marseille skyline and I was not disappointed. I walked for about 10 minutes to the entrance to the cruise port (following the green line) where a free shuttle bus took me to a stop near where the ferries to Algeria are berthed. Note that this free bus does not start service until after 9.00 am. I then walked and visited the Cathedrale de Major which opens at 10.00 am, and then went further along the road to the Mucem St Jean where I caught Bus 60 to Notre Dame. The church is a large and interesting complex, and the views of the city are spectacular. On the way back from Notre Dame I spent some time wandering about the Old Port before returning to the free shuttle bus. There was a large crowd waiting to board the shuttle bus back to the cruise terminal as there were two large MSC cruise ships in port. Read Less

Strolled through the fish market and experienced a (non-violent) demonstration. The Christmas Market was going on--crafts etc. Bought beautiful scented soaps.

Second time to Marseille -- not a fan of it, but as I boarded the ship there I took the opportunity to visit Avignon for a day beforehand, which was fantastic despite the cold and rain.

$15 Bus ride to city center provided by NCL. Paid additional $10 for taxi to visit Basilique Notre-Dame. Because of rain, decided to visit indoor mall. Later visited the town market. Too little time to do much. Back to ship by 3pm.

This tour was basically a bus tour and the tour guide wasn't particularly engaging.
