Discover the Heart of Colombia

Experience a new era of opulent river cruising as two luxury vessels make their maiden voyage through the scenic water of the Magdalena River: the AmaMagdalena and the AmaMelodia. As the first ship to set sail from a major luxury river cruise line in Columbia, the newly designed, 60-passenger AmaMagdalena provides five-star service and spacious lounge areas as you take in the scenic views of the “Land of a Thousand Rhythms.” Her sistership, AmaMelodia, will launch in the Summer of 2025, providing more opportunities for you to explore the historic towns and beautiful heritage of the jewel of South America. Aboard both ships, guests can indulge in locally inspired Latin American cuisine, relax in the heated pool, or opt for a rejuvenating massage. 

Let your Columbian Journeys take you to the bustling city of Barranquilla for an exclusive Carnaval experience, drinking the famous Columbian Coffee and exploring the exotic wildlife, before ending in the charming town of Cartagena. Or explore the historic city of Palenque and the artisan hub of Getsemani as local guides share how historic events, music, and artistry shape the country’s modern culture. Whichever ship you choose, the natural and exotic wonders will take your breath away.
