Earlier this week, AmaWaterways held a special Sip & Sail event to provide details about its new Latin America cruises. Beginning in April of 2024, AmaWaterways will offer a series of seven-night sailings, with optional add-ons, along the Magdalena River. The cruises will operate on two new ships carrying 60/64 guests between Barranquilla and Cartagena. The new ships, named AmaMagdalena and AmaMelodia, are wider than those operating in Europe, because there are no narrow locks to contend with on the Magdalena river.
“The concept will the same as on our European ships, the twin-balcony cabin,” says Rudi Schreiner, co-founder, co-owner and president of AmaWaterways. “All the staterooms will feature a French balcony as well as an outside balcony.” Staterooms will range from 237 square feet to 516 square feet, and each ship will feature a pool on the top deck. Lots of details in the video. We encourage you to sit back and give it a watch.
