10 Destinations Cheaper to See by Cruise Than on Land

by Heidi Sarna and Kayla Becker | March 31, 2017

6. The French Riviera

For decades the rich and famous have played here, arriving in sleek yachts and camping out in extravagant hotels. You’ll pay through the nose at restaurants, bars, and shops, especially in ritzy Cap d’Antibes, Cannes, and neighboring Monaco. Take a cruise, however, and you can soak up all that glamour for a day without going broke.

One to try: The sophisticated 686-passenger Azamara Quest takes you to sun-kissed ports such as Monte Carlo, Cannes, and Saint-Tropez, allowing you to do something not many other cruise ships do: spend the night in port.
