(PRESS RELEASE)_In honor of National Cheese Lover’s Day (January 20), Azamara – the upmarket cruise line and leader in Destination Immersion® experiences – is excited to announce a brand-new land program giving travelers the unique opportunity to experience the Swiss alps with a cheese making workshop on Mount Rigi.
The new ‘Switzerland Glacier Express Train’ adventure can be added on to Azamara voyages embarking or debarking from Amsterdam, Copenhagen, or Bordeaux, for five nights pre-cruise or four nights post-cruise. Guests will take the world-famous Glacier Express from the towering 38-foot peaks of Zermatt all the way to upscale resort town, St. Moritz. In the heart of the Alps, guests will enjoy a full-day excursion to the Queen of the Mountains, Mount Rigi, for an authentic, hands-on cheese making workshop with a local farmer and cheese expert. Guests will have the chance to taste and learn about the various types of Swiss cheeses whilst enjoying the stunning panoramic views over the surrounding lakes and Alpine peaks.
Azamara also offers an array of immersive shore excursions for cheese lovers. Guests can learn all about the cheese-making process at family-run Tingvoll Farm on the 14-Night Norway Intensive Voyage, visit the Barlotti Cheese Factory to taste delicious mozzarella di bufala cheeses on the 7-Night Italy Intensive Voyage, or enjoy perfectly paired wine and cheese in Bordeaux on the 14-Night Wine and Culture Voyage.
