Cruises from Marseille

  • What was once one of the most important European trading centres has remained the main commercial port of France. Beyond its importance for commercial and freight vessels, cruises from Marseille are among the most popular for accessing the shores of the Mediterranean.

  • With nearly 2 million passengers leaving on cruises from Marseille in 2019, Marseille is the go-to port along the French Riviera.

  • A city established in 600 BC, Marseille is the second biggest city in France and has always been an important access point into Western Europe. That history, along with its strategic location on the mouth of the Rhone, makes this eccentric city different than any other in Europe.

  • Although ancient, it’s innovative. Before setting off on your cruise from Marseille, take the opportunity to immerse yourself in this melting-pot of new and old. Most of the sites you won’t want to miss are within a comfortable walking distance from the city centre – and beaches are easily and affordably reached with taxis or public transport.

  • MSC cruises from Marseille deals are always changing and always providing you with the most affordable way to explore this gem of Europe. Marseille is our departure point for such popular destinations as Italy, Spain, Portugal, Malta, Gibraltar, and of course France itself.

  • Hop aboard the MSC Grandiosa, MSC Magnifica for a quick 5-night trip or, for a more immersive experience, check out our 10 and 14-night options. There’s more to come for the cruises from Marseille 2020 season, so be sure to check back when you’re ready to start planning.
