All the towns along the Riviera try to  attract cruise ships. However, shops and restaurants in Antibes comment that cruise tourists visit the town in tight organised groups and don’t spend much. Everything they need is on the ship.

Toutes les villes de la Côte d’Azur essaient d’attirer des bateaux de croisières pour profiter des retombées touristiques. Cependant, selon les commerçants d’Antibes, les croisiéristes traversent la ville en groupes serrés et ne dépensent pas beaucoup d’argent.
