The Wonders of Colombia with Ann-Marie

Embark on an escorted 7-night, 8-day, river cruise from Cartagena to Baranquilla in Colombia, a journey of a lifetime through the “Land of a Thousand Rhythms” on AmaWaterway’s new ship, the AmaMelodia in May 2025. Your experienced host for this voyage is Ann-Marie Gaudet, co-owner of Cruise Holidays Select.

Immerse yourself in the wonders that this South American country holds as you journey along the magnificent Magdalena River. Step through the streets of Palenque, the first free city in Colombia, moving to the rhythms of cumbia and vallenato, world-renown musical styles. Delight in the colorful neighborhood of Getsemaní in Cartagena, drinking in the vivid colors and culture displayed so artfully on the walls of homes, cafes and family-owned shops. Discover how Spanish and pre-colonial cultures combined to bring us the music, minds, and culture that exist in the country today. Let these breathtaking destinations inspire you as you embrace the soul of this mesmerizing river and the heart-warming people who live alongside it.
