The cruise ship Azamara Journey stopped outside the pier to buy local goat cheese.
Ship stopped to buy goat cheese
The guests on the pier were astounded when the cruise ship turned the bow towards the pier in Undredal and stopped. The goal was to buy Undredal’s cheese. The Sunday cheese buy was one of the more spectacular purchases. They wanted a show.“I received a phone call from the ship Sunday morning letting us know they wanted to create a little bit of a show for the guests. I thought that they wanted local entertainment, but it turned out they wanted local goat cheese” said shop owner Leif Inge Underdal.
A tender with crew was lowered, and they turned towards our floating pier. On shore was Leif Inge Underdal (shop owner), ready with the order – a bunch of the popular Underdal’s cheese – both brown and white. Right afterwards the tender turned back to the ship with the valuable goods.
It was a rare purchase
Q: Are purchases like that normal in Underdal?
A: No, this is rather rare, but I do believe it has happened before.
