The Norwegian cruise line Holdings, which accounts for about 40% of Cannes' total cruise ship traffic, has signed an agreement with the city, promising to make its ships more environmentally friendly.
Saint-Raphael, another French port city located between Cannes and Saint-Tropez, is now implementing a similar decision. Ships wishing to dock by 2020 will need to sign such an agreement to reduce their emissions.
