Most ships will tender you to The Old harbor which is within walking distance to town.
The old town harbor is very picturesque.

For centuries has Rovinj been turned to the sea. It gets there its wealth, way of life, mentality, development and future. But this town has known how to preserve its nature and accept, at the same time, all the challenges of modern tourism.
All the Rovinj coast and the surrounding twenty-two islands and islets are a protected natural heritage.
Do wear sensible shoes, the cobblestone streets are pretty ,but rather slippery and steep.
It pays to compare your cruise line shore excursions here.
There’s an hourly ferry to the lovely and wooded Crveni otok (22KN return) and a frequent ferry to nearby Sveti Katarina (12KN return) from the same landing. These boats operate only from May to mid-October.
1 Euro = 7.50 Kuna. Starting on Januari 2023 the Euro will be the new currency in Croatia.
Bear in mind that the Croatian kuna is not exchangeable outside Croatia so you'll either have to change it back into your home currency in Croatia or do some last minute shopping.
If you come to Croatia equipped with euros you can pay for most accommodation (hotels or private accommodation), excursions, plane tickets and car rentals in euros without getting ripped off on an exchange rate as most of these items are priced in euros anyway.
