Directions to cruise port from Monaco train station:

The train station is within walking distance from the port (actually, anything in the country of Monaco is within walking distance from any other place of the country).

But public transportation is also available within Monaco (bus network + 1 "bateau bus" crossing Port Hercules) for 1 euro per trip

From the train station, you can reach Cannes, Nice (and in theory any other European train station). Train tickets are on sale at Voyages-sncf but if you're planning a long train journey, the German website (Bahn) may be more helpful.
