All four ships in the luxurious Azamara fleet came together last week in the charming Adriatic port of Koper, Slovenia as the city celebrated its first-ever Gourmet Festival.

“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.”

Mike Pawlus – Head of Itinerary Planning, Azamara.

Koper is ideally suited to Azamara’s destination focused itineraries. The old-town is bursting with Venetian-influenced architecture, yet it retains a culture and lifestyle all its own.

Indeed, guests on board Azamara Journey and Azamara Pursuit had the additional opportunity of sampling the city’s nightlife with a late night in port.
