The Ama Magdalena is a 70-metre-long river expedition vessel specially built for navigating the Magdalena River. It has 30 generously sized cabins, evenly distributed on the first and second decks and accommodating a maximum of 60 passengers. Each cabin has twin beds (that can be converted into a double bed), air conditioning, outward-facing panoramic windows with a French balcony, as well as an outside balcony and sitting area. A restaurant on the middle deck serves international and regionally inspired cuisine (wine, beer, and soft drinks are included during lunch and dinner) and the sun deck has a lounge, bar, and small pool. Other facilities include a gym, massage room and a nail and hair salon.
