The ultra-premium cruise company and travel brand Azamara celebrated a rare occurrence on October 8th in Slovenia's principal seaport - Koper, where the entire fleet (4 sisterships of the Renaissance-class) met for the first time ever.

The fleet's latest addition Azamara, Onward made a maiden visit to Koper alongside the 3 sisters Azamara Journey, Azamara Pursuit, and Azamara Quest. The historic event was celebrated by Koper's Municipality with an official ceremony held in the Praetorian Palace (15th-century Venetian Gothic palace) on Tito Square.

Koper’s port authorities and local government officials came together with the captains of each Azamara cruise ship to exchange plaques commemorating the occasion.

Mike Pawlus, Director of Strategic Itinerary and Destination Planning said that had been a special moment that had 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."

Mitja Dujc (Head of the Cruise Terminal for the Port of Koper) said they were very excited to welcome all 4 of Azamara’s ships and their passengers to Koper. He added that the port had been primarily a cargo port, but over the past few decades, they had been pleased to welcome more and more cruise ships to their beautiful country.

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

Azamara’s 4 sisterships will be meeting once again in Koper in fall 2023.
