“It’s such a unique moment to have our four ships meet once again and host all of our guests at a specially curated event where they can experience local gastronomy while meeting new people from this wonderful country,” said Mike Pawlus, Head of Itinerary Planning at Azamara.
“Our local tour operator, Atlas Express, who we honoured as an AzAmazing Partner in 2023, has done a phenomenal job bringing the destination to life for our guests. We’re thankful to the Municipality of Koper, the Slovenian Tourism Board, the Port of Koper, and Visit Koper for all their support in making this happen.”
Guests from each of the four ships – Azamara Journey®, Azamara Quest®, Azamara Pursuit®, and the fleet’s latest ship, Azamara Onward® – were given complimentary tickets to enjoy the Gourmet Festival’s local cuisine, wines, and entertainment. The Vice Mayor of Koper, Mateja Hrvatin Kozlovic, presented the four captains with a plaque to commemorate the occasion and while guests onboard Azamara Journey and Azamara Pursuit enjoyed a late night in port to with guests onboard Azamara Quest
