Have you ever wished your vacation could be even more relaxing? River cruising allows you to see the exotic lands you’ve always dreamed of without the hassle of going from hotel to hotel. Simply drift along the river and the sights come to you. Enhanced by culturally authentic experiences and meals, it is truly one of the most laid back and immersive ways to explore.

The newest river cruise ships feature state-of-the-art amenities that will make your next trip even more spectacular. Take a peek at some of the latest vessels from AAA Travel’s preferred lines.

The AmaMagdalena cruises along its namesake river.


Cruise Columbia’s Magdalena River aboard the new AmaMagdalena, which offers luxury to each of its 60 passengers. Though it’s an intimate cruise, there’s still plenty of room to move around and enjoy the heated pool, the fitness room and al fresco dining. Or you could lounge on your own private outside balcony as you watch the beautiful views go by.

AmaMelodia is another brand-new ship that sails Colombia’s Magdalena River. Featuring many of the same amenities as its sister ship, the AmaMagdalena, the AmaMelodia can carry 64 passengers.

Ever wanted to cruise the Nile? Now you can on the AmaLilia, debuting in 2024. It’s a magnificent way to explore the sights, sounds and tastes of Egypt, featuring a multi-course tasting menu, locally inspired décor and an onboard Egyptologist.
