In a historic first, Azamara’s four sister ships congregated in Koper earlier this month when the line’s newest ship, Azamara Onward, made her maiden call in that small port.

Azamara Celebrates Newest Addition to Fleet

The Azamara Journey, Azamara Quest and Azamara Pursuit met up with their newest sibling in the Municipality of Koper in Slovenia, and no expense was spared during the ceremony in the Praetorian Palace, a 15th-century Venetian Gothic palace on Tito Square. The cream of the crop of Koper’s government and port authorities were in attendance, along with the captains of all four ships.

“This has been a special moment that’s been years in the making. At first, we were planning to have our three sister ships meet but just two weeks ago, we were able to confirm our full fleet to be docked at the same time,” said Mike Pawlus, director of strategic itinerary and destination planning, in a press statement. “This wouldn’t have happened without the support of the Municipality of Koper, Port of Koper, the Slovenian Tourism Board, and Atlas Express. We are deeply grateful for the warm welcome and thrilled to show our guests the beautiful country of Slovenia.”

“We are very excited to welcome all four of Azamara’s ships and their guests to Koper, the largest port in Slovenia. This port has been primarily a cargo port, but over the past few decades, we have been pleased to welcome more and more cruise ships to our beautiful country.” said Mitja Dujc, head of the cruise terminal for the Port of Koper, in a press statement.

According to Ales Brzan, mayor of Koper, Azamara has been one of their most important cruise partners, and they are looking forward to welcoming them back next year and in the years to come.

Azamara’s four ships will be meeting once again in Koper in the fall of 2023.
