Each Avalon "Suite Ship" is powered by two Caterpillar Marine diesel engines (model C32 ACERT, total power output 1,4 MW / 1930 HP), plus an emergency diesel generator. The ship's propulsion is diesel-electric, with one azimuth thruster (at the bow) and a "Silent Drive System" (separating the ship's engines from passenger staterooms).

Riverboat's Godmother is Meredith Louise Vieira (1953-born US journalist and TV personality), best known with The View talk show (1997-2006) of NBC News. The new ship's christening ceremony is scheduled for April 6, 2020, to be held in Ybbs an der Donau, Austria.
