In August we have from 8a-5p in Marseille. Any suggestions about how to spend our time?

Check with cruisecritic.com, the "ports" section for ideas. Or google Marseilles tourist information.

If you Google '36 hours in Marseilles' you will find some good resources as well. It's more time than you have, but it should give you useful ideas.

We took a train to aixe en Provence. Beautiful!! We visited for most of the day and spent about an hour visiting the main streets of Marseilles.

Hvaen't been myself, but my friends rave about the Chateau D'If, the prison from the Count of Monte Cristo. Apparently the oat ride to and from is also very nice, though you may be tired of boats if you are on a cruise.
